(http://espn.go.com/nfl/draft2012/story/_/id/7433474/arizona-state-sun-devils-brock-osweiler-enter-nfl-draft) I'd say draft him. He's a Montana guy and we've already got a few Montana guys on the team to keep him out of trouble. Lex Hilliard went to the same HS as him.

Of course, he wouldn't/couldn't be the starter for next season, but he's definitely worth looking into.

I am a Sun Devil fan. He isn't ready, and he won't be ready for a couple years.

Still, I agree with those who love his potential.

If the Dolphins could trade down and acquire some extra picks; I wouldn't mind drafting Weeden,who is very NFL ready IMO, and Oswieler if he slides to the late 3rd or 4th round.

After all, if the Dolphins aren't sold on Devlin, they will need a number three QB, and Oswieler would become the #3 QB with the most #1 potential in the NFL.

If we are committed to letting Moore start next year than I think he'd be a great pick. He really needs some time to develop and to learn an NFL offense. He might even need two years. If we pick him than Fin fans are really going to have to be patient with him. I don't think he can come right in and make a difference for this team.

He may need 3 or 4 years. He only started one season.

I don't think it's a good idea to play next season with Moore as our starter and Osweiler as our primary backup. Anyone who drafts Osweiler has to make him their #3. The kid isn't ready to be a backup in the NFL, maybe after a couple of years. If he's our primary backup next season then we are in serious trouble if Moore goes down.

Agreed, if the Dolphins can land a veteran QB via the wavier wire, Osweiler would be one of the guys I'd like to sit and learn.

I agree with this, but I also think he was the best Collegiate QB in the State of Arizona this last year, and the best not named Luck or Barkley in the PacXX.

He would be an iffy luxury pick, but then again, most QB's are.

pat devlin might be ready to assume backup duties next season...in the event you do end up with matt moore as your week 1 starter...

I'm not a big fan, plus I don't see huge upside. He throws the ball really poorly at times. I think he'd be a huge gamble, don't put your franchises future on him.

I think he made a huge mistake coming out early. Definitely has the skills, but would have really benefitted from more time in college. That said I think he will be drafted in the 2nd round range and could, ultimately, be worth it if he gets with the right qb coach/team.

Stupid silly move.I can't really blame him after the coaching fiasco. It's really unfortunate timing for Osweiler. Todd Graham is a piece of ****.

I agree lets give him a chance but we dont want to use our 1st or 2nd round picks on him would be good idea for later in the draft
6'8 qb would be interesting

Is he a statue or can he move around? Normally I associate lack of quickness with really tall quarterbacks.

I am a Sun Devil Alum (Class of '92...go Sun Devils). I watch most of their games, and you are right...he is not ready YET, but the upside for this guy is great. I think right now he would be a late 2nd rounder, early 3rd rounder. He has only been the starter at QB for one year, but I really like his mobility, arm strength, accuracy. He was a basketball player and even though he is 6'8" he is really mobile. He doesn't get "happy feet," but he could work on his stance a little more. He has a pretty nice release for a big man, over-the-top, and doesn't hold it too long. He just needs a little more experience. I hope we give him a good look. I think a third round pick for Osweiler would be sweet.

Here is a really good summary of the pro's and cons on Osweiler:

He has good mobility. He played basketball so he's pretty athletic.
