weeden better be ready to play on day 1. His old azz doesn't have time to learn and if he goes in there and fails in year one teams aren't going to "wait" for him to develop. By he time he did he'd be 49 years old
Wouldnt be surprised if Weeden is drafted in the second by Denver.
Elway cant help but love that cannon on Weedens shoulder.
But Russell Wilson is the QB for us imo.
Gnashing of TEETH
- Per the NFL Experts at the Combine.Osweiler has a very deliberate, quick-twitched setup which he employs on a consistent basis. His athletic ability allows him to play the position naturally and with ease. He slings the ball naturally, as well, and even though he pats the ball before throwing, his release is so compact and effective he isn't hindered by this habit in the slightest.
And from the same experts -http://www.nfl.com/combine/profiles/...ler?id=2533436Osweiler's shining asset is his arm strength; he can hit nearly any NFL-caliber throw at this point in his career. He is a good leader and looks in control in the huddle and on the field. He is above average from an accuracy standpoint, and he really has a good grasp on when to add touch to the ball or to zip it. He has the pocket presence of a first-day pick and doesn't go down easily. He is good to extend plays with his feet.
I like Kellen's accuracy but i would be worried that he would get his hymen broke.
Don't understand the obsession with Brock AT ALL. Played in a very weak conference, didn't perform against the better teams, not a great athlete...
Weeden is at least ready to start from day 1 and has a cannon. Lindley would be another guy with upside. Keenum would come late in the draft and would be somewhat ready to start and is athletic. Even a guy like Russell Wilson would be an ideal backup for Tebow.
There are options out there - no need for Denver to spend a vital early draft pick on a QB. Especially a QB who is going to suck and offer virtually no help to this team.
All i have ever read and saw is hes an exceptional athlete.
Osweiller has close ties to the Elway family through Elways son, and the Ericksson/Elway connection.
I have no doubt as i have said for months now along with Lancane that Osweiller is on DENs board.
http://walterfootball.com/draft2008P.phpBrock Osweiler, QB, Arizona State
Height: 6-8. Weight: 240.
Projected 40 Time: 4.70.
Projected Round (2012): 4-5.
1/9/12: Osweiler is big-armed pocket passer who has surprising mobility. The former basketball player has good athletic ability for being so tall. Looking at him, one would think he would be a statue in the pocket, but that is definitely not the case. As a junior this year, Osweiler completed 63 percent of his passes for 4,036 yards with 26 touchdowns and 13 interceptions. He also ran for 298 yards and three touchdowns. Osweiler set the school record for yards, completions and attempts. In 2010, he had only two starts, but played well throwing for 797 yards and five touchdowns with zero interceptions. He also ran for 168 yards and a score.
Osweiler has real arm strength and the gun to be a starting quarterback in the NFL. He is very raw and needs some work. If Osweiler goes to a good coaching staff that can develop him for a few years, he could turn into something. It wouldn't be surprising if Osweiler's stock rises during the lead up to the draft. He should have stayed in school and improved before going pro.
This is EXACTLY the kind of QB i want DEN to draft.
NOT ready for any kind of playing time, but will be developed behind TT, giving Tim every opportunity to shine.
And if TT does not work out, so be it, DEN has a QB that they have drafted, developed and knows the system.
Along with a vet like Brunell or Delhomme DEN will be set at QB going forward.

Osweiler sounds a little like Dan McGuire...perhaps he'll be better.
we are not taking a QB before round 3...My guess says we take a flier on a round 4-6 type.
I dont understand why people dont like weeden because he is old.
Would you guys take peyton manning, drew brees right now? They are old. Yes, they are proven and he is not, but he is not going to command a high pick. He is going to fall because of his age and if you can get a drew brees for 5 years for a 5th round pick- would you take it?
Xavier Rhodes is a super stud!
Draft: trade back to early 2nd or end of 1. Gain a 4th.
2a. DJ Hayden- cb
2b. Christine Michael- rb
3. Dj swearinger- ss
4. John Simon or Corey lemionier -de
4. Barrett jones - center
5. Kevin Reddick- MLB
