I like it. Everyone keeps talking about how Manning is only here for a few years and its win now. Thats stupid. Good franchises want to win all the time. Osweiler needs work, and hopefully they will have him ready to go by the time Manning is ready to step down. If in the next two years Osweiler doesn't improve. Draft another QB.

Yep. Osweiler is a pick that covers a lot of bases. If Manning doesn't pan out for health reasons you have Osweiler as the projected QBOTF goiung into 2013 with a year under his belt.

If Manning play 3 more years, you either have Osweiler, still only 24 with Aaron Rodgers type experience taking over the position. If it's obvious after a couple years that he's not going to develop into a franchise guy, you move on.

He was inevitable. But I did not like where he was taken. It's like when Tebow was taken at #25, I do not believe there were other teams scrambling to get him

There would have been. That was his average value going into the draft and someone would have taken him in the next 15 picks or so IMHO.

Meh. Perhaps, but you can say that about 70 guys every draft, but you can't say it with any authority because we just have no idea. If you like a guy and he's there, you take him, and if there is a position to stretch a little for, a QBOTF is the place to do it.

No way Osweiler was going to make it out of the 2nd round, If Osweiler would have stayed in school he would be talked about as one of the top 3 QBs coming out in the 2013 draft. So instead of playing out his senior year at Arizona State, he can learn from the Broncos.

I agree. I watched a few ASU games, and said half way through last year that I really liked the kid. I think it was a surprise to a lot of people that he came out, although a very justifiable move given the coaching change and the fact that Barkley and Jones both stayed in school.

I think there's too much upside with Brock to think he would have fallen much further.

I like the pick, I understand the pick, just don't know anything about the guy. He can't be any worse than Hanie right? If Manning goes down it's a crap shoot on the next guy up. I've seen Hanie and there's not much there.

Manning
Osweiller
Weber - I just want to see the guy get a chance
Ball boy
Backup Center
Cheerleader
ORTON
Hanie


Brady Quinn still sucks.

Lets be honest, if Manning goes down Osweiler ain't coming in. Sorry, it will either be Hanie or Weber.

Again, Osweiler is not ready. As in NOT READY.

Again, Osweiler is a project and you don't sacrifice your project at the alter of "salvage this season without Manning." Not gonna happen. If Manning goes down it's Hanie time. Maybe, just barely maybe if Osweiler some how shows the coaching staff he's light years ahead of where he should be, maybe the Broncos put him in for a few games at the end of the season. Maybe.

Need to lock him in for at least a 4-year rookie contract.

What I love about Osweiler is that he seems to have a genuine humility about him.

Tebow's humility always seems somewhat contrived.

I know Osweiler is thinking in the back of his mind "I'm eventually going to start and I'm going to be an all-pro and a super bowl winner," but I love how he's completely embraced his role as a backup to Manning and a total project for the team. I think he's smart enough to understand that this is a perfect situation for him.

I like it, too, because I've always wanted a tall QB. I think I've felt that could always be a benefit for a QB at the NFL level - not having to move the pocket to find passing lanes. Now we have two tall QBs - 6'5" Manning and 6'7" Osweiler.

This was my favorite pick of the draft.

Yeah, if Manning goes down, we're going to lose a lot of games. Osweiler has a ton of potential, but he's definitely a developmental guy. He only has 15 starts in college, and throwing him to the wolves trying to salvage a dead season would, imo, hurt his development.

Really? I got the exact opposite impression from that Gruden QB camp video. He seemed pretty cocky. Not that this is bad for a QB.

I agree. I always have wanted a QBOTF with a genuine humility about him. What I love the most is that we effed ourselves out of a bunch of draft picks so our Vice president of football operations can have his guy.

I really didn't like the other guy that won our first playoff game in 6 years and did all those philanthropic things. I am really really glad we got rid of him for nothing and drafted a project qb early in the draft. Those things really got me stoked for our upcoming drafts with our FO at the healm.
