Quarterback Brock Osweiler stands 6-feet-7-inches tall.
The Broncos just want to make sure he plays that tall.
Osweiler spent the past few months working on his delivery and footwork, making sure his throwing motion is ready for NFL action.
“The main thing is getting my elbow raised up,” he explained. “A lot of times in college, my elbow would drop below my shoulder, if you will. When you do that, you lose velocity, you lose accuracy, you’re less consistent with your throws. We basically made a huge point to bring that elbow up to a more traditional throwing motion and get it above my shoulder.”
“Now the biggest thing is to transition those training sessions out here to the practice field.”
After one day of practice, Head Coach John Fox said he has noticed Osweiler is starting to do just that.
“He has to use his height advantage a little bit better with that higher delivery,” he explained. “He’s an accurate passer and I think he became more accurate.”
