Through no fault of his own, and without doing anything to deserve it, Brock Osweiler's stock is rising. Why? Because of the rest of the quarterback class.
Andrew Luck and Robert Griffin will be the first and second pick. If you can't get them there, you can't have them.
Russell Wilson and Brandon Weeden would be first-rounders were it not for their fatal flaws (height and age).
Ryan Tannehill has been injured, and Nick Foles and Kirk Cousins both played badly in the Senior Bowl. So who does that leave as a potential franchise quarterback in this class? Just Osweiler.
He is monstrously tall, surprisingly quick and threw for a lot of yards in his brief time as a starter. Is he ready for the NFL right now? No, but if he'd stayed another year at college he could've been a very high pick.
Teams will be paying a lot of attention to him as a potential steal from now until the draft. If he does well at the Combine and his pro day, then he will be picked early.
