NFL Combine: With top QBs not throwing, Brock Osweiler could shine

The stage is set for Arizona State quarterback Brock Osweiler to steal this year's NFL Scouting Combine.

Andrew Luck, Robert Griffin III and Ryan Tannehill, widely regarded as the top three quarterbacks in the 2012 NFL Draft, won't be throwing at the Combine. Luck and Griffin, secured top five picks, don't have to throw and Tannehill continues to rehab his foot. That leaves the door open for a quarterback to shine in Indianapolis during work outs Sunday.

Based solely on his natural ability, that player could Osweiler. We know Osweiler has the size and arm strength. What's uncertain is his accuracy. Throwing largely to receivers he doesn't have a rapport, Osweiler could help himself with a good showing. If he's on the mark and throwing with velocity, Osweiler's stock could go up considerably with so many teams needing a quarterback.

The Scouting Combine is just one part of the process. For Osweiler, it's the biggest after his game tape. Do well in Indianapolis and Osweiler could be this year's Christian Ponder or Jake Locker and hear his named called in the first round.
