Denver Broncos rookies were at Dove Valley on Friday to take part in practice, and afterward second-round pick QB Brock Osweiler spoke to the media. He discussed his changed point of release:
Osweiler on changing his release: "The main thing is getting my elbow raised up...now the biggest thing is transition training to practice."— Denver Broncos (@Denver_Broncos) May 11, 2012
Osweiler on new release: "I felt very comfortable with it. I felt more consistent with my accuracy."— Denver Broncos (@Denver_Broncos) May 11, 2012
Osweiler, 6 feet 7, has exhibited a long release due to his height, which has led to issues concerning his accuracy. Hey, doesn't that sound familiar to a former Broncos quarterback?
Anyway, as we all know, Osweiler will play the understudy to Peyton Manning for the next few years, which should be a great learning experience for him. At least for this season, Osweiler will have his locker near Peyton Manning's and next to Brandon Stokley's. Some of that veteraniness should rub off on him.
