2012 NFL Draft: Denver Broncos Meet With Arizona St. QB Brock Osweiler

The Denver Broncos made the biggest move of the off-season when they signed prized free agent quarterback Peyton Manning. Manning is 36 years old though, and after trading last season's starter Tim Tebow to the New York Jets, Denver now must identify a future quarterback prospect. According to reports, the team held a private workout with Arizona State's Brock Osweiler.

Osweiler is an interesting prospect. The 21-year old has only one full season of college football under his belt, but it was an impressive one: Osweiler set a school-record by throwing for 4,036 yards, to go with 26 touchdowns and 13 interceptions.

Osweiler is also the tallest quarterback available in the draft, standing at 6-foot-8. Most expect the former Sun Devil to be drafted between the second and fourth round.
