NEW YORK — Peyton Manning is the Denver Broncos’ quarterback of the present. No one — not even Manning — knows how lengthy his post-surgery reboot in the Rockies will last.
That’s why the Broncos chosen Arizona State quarterback Brock Osweiler with the No. 57 general pick in the 2012 NFL Draft.
This always was the plan. Even when Tim Tebow was in town, the Broncos wanted to develop a “traditional” quarterback for the future. Acquiring Manning doesn’t modify that.
“I don’t feel it’s one particular of those factors exactly where Peyton Manning feels threatened by any stretch,” Broncos coach John Fox jokingly said, according to The Related Press. “All in all, I believed (Osweiler) is what you’re searching for in a prototypical quarterback. He’s the guy we liked that we think has a bright future in the future.”
Osweiler understands — and can’t wait to join the Broncos.
“I could not be any far more excited to be going to Denver to find out from Peyton Manning,” he said in a conference call, according to The . “A lot of quarterbacks might be upset possessing to sit behind someone, where I look at it as a tremendous chance to understand from a single of the best, if not the finest to ever play the game.”
Osweiler mostly is known for his height — he measures in at about 6-foot-7 — and his reside arm. He only started for one particular year, but he was quite productive. He will want to work on his footwork and mental elements of his game.
“I’ll be prepared to roll,” Osweiler said. “Regardless of whatever the circumstance is this year, I’ll be prepared when my name gets referred to as.”
He couldn’t have two much better quarterback tutors: John Elway and Manning. Hopefully, the kid doesn’t get intimidated.
