PHOENIX Arizona State quarterback Brock Oweiler could not have landed in a better spot Friday. Selected by Denver in the second round of the NFL draft, Osweiler will begin his NFL career being tutored by Hall of Famer-to-be Peyton Manning. It seems an ideal fit. Osweiler threw for 4,036 yards in his only full season as a starter in 2011, and scouts consider him a player with a large upside because of untapped potential.The Broncos signed Manning to a five-year, 96 million contact after he was released by Indianapolis in the offsesaosn and later dealt Tim Tebow to the New York Jets.Osweiler had a year of eligibility remaining, but he chose to enter the draft after ASU head coach Dennis Erickson was fired and offensive coordinator Noel Mazzone was not retained, since joining Jim Mora Jr.s staff at UCLA.Osweiler was the fifth quarterback taken in the draft, after Stanfords Andrew Luck, Baylors Robert Griffin III, Texas A&Ms Ryan Tannehill and Oklahoma States Brandon Weeden went in Thursdays first round. Denver chose Osweiler as their quarterback to groom over Michigan States Kirk Cousins and Arizonas Nick Foles. Follow Jack Magruder on Twitter
