Denver drafts first QB of second round, Brock Osweiler
John Elway loves prototypical quarterbacks. A month after signing Peyton Manning, Elway hopes he has added his eventual replacement by drafting Arizona State quarterback Brock Osweiler with the No. 57 pick. At 6-foot-7 Osweiler has a rocket arm and he has ability. But he is raw. This is a total pick for the future. I will have more on this later as well as a wrap up of the third round among other things. (ESPN)
FF Today's Take:This pick isn't really insurance, as the big quarterback is still a work in progress. If Manning goes down with another neck injury, Osweiler and the Broncos receiving corps could be in for a rough time. Under Manning's tutelage though, the Arizona State standout could develop into something special a few years down the road.
