2012 NFL Draft: Broncos Keen On QB Brock Osweiler, Who Worked With Tim Tebow's Mentor Noel Mazzone

The Denver Broncos have a thing for talented athletes with flawed throwing mechanics who have consulted quarterback guru Noel Mazzone, it would appear. Former Broncos QB Tim Tebow worked extensively with Mazzone during the past two off-seasons and prior to the 2010 NFL Draft to iron out flaws in his throwing motion, footwork, release and accuracy, and now Jeff Legwold of the Denver Post is reporting that Arizona St. Sun Devils QB Brock Osweiler is catching the team's eye after cleaning up his delivery with Mazzone:

[A]fter working with former Sun Devils offensive coordinatorNoel Mazzone, now at UCLA, Osweiler showed the Broncos a far more upright delivery in his private workout, with a consistently higher release point.

"Since I've been to college, we've kind of slowly adjusted my throwing motion with each season. I've worked on it a lot," Osweiler said. "Coach Mazzone has done a tremendous job with it, and we've done things all the way through, not just leading up to (the draft). We've done a lot of work just to make sure my elbow is where it needs to be."

"I don't feel like there has ever been a quarterback who is 6-7, 240 pounds and has the athleticism I do and can make every throw on the football field," Osweiler said. "I feel good about what I can do."

Osweiler is the No. 5-ranked quarterback prospect according to SB Nation's NFL Draft site, Mocking The Draft, and his scouting report is available here.
