Top 100 Prospects – QB Brock Osweiler

Another QB in the 2012 NFL Draft class played minor league baseball for five years, before giving it up in hopes of starting a football career.

But Oklahoma State’s Brandon Weeden isn’t the only superb athlete that brings credentials from another sport into the draft class. Arizona State’s Brock Osweiler could just as easily been preparing for the NBA Draft right now, after a college basketball career at Gonzaga. In fact, the Gonzaga head coach Mark Few offered him a scholarship when he was just a high school freshman.

At that time Osweiler was one of the top schoolboy players in the country, despite living and playing out of Kalispell, Montana. He was on the AAU circuit, thanks to a six-inch growth spurt over a three-year period. As a sixth grader, he could dunk a basketball, and as a high school freshman, he could do a 360-degree dunk.

But football became his sport and after a record-setting high school career, he signed on with the Aztecs and now enters the Draft. Here’s his story.

    Actually, I like this guy ALOT in the 2d round, after seeing his deal on the Gruden QB series. He’s raw but coachble, good work ethic, tall, and FEARLESS.
