Former Arizona State quarterback Brock Osweiler appeared on Gruden's QB Camp on Monday afternoon, talking about his collegiate experience as a Sun Devil with former NFL coach and current announcer Jon Gruden.
The interview covered a lot of territory, including Osweiler's tattoos, his outlook on life, leadership skills, his read against the Cover 2 defense, his potential and his shortcomings. Gruden appeared to be a fan of Osweiler, praising his quick release and his good instincts, but made it very clear to the young quarterback that he had a lot of work to do in terms of ball handling and "being on the screws."
Gruden was impressed with his "enthusiasm and his charisma" while also acknowledging that Osweiler was "fun to be around." Osweiler, for his part, was willing to take criticism and advice from Gruden, who had clearly watched a lot of tape in preparation for the former Sun Devil's arrival.
From my point of view, Osweiler was on point. He knew what he was talking about, had a good answer for every question Gruden threw at him, and was extremely charismatic on camera. It is quite clear that this television appearance is going to improve Osweiler's stock as we get closer to the NFL Draft.
