Brock Osweiler is still considered the heir apparent to Peyton Manning.

The Broncos took Osweiler in the second round of the 2012 draft. Since then, the only pick they've used at quarterback was Zac Dysert in the seventh round of 2013. With Manning possibly done after this season, the 6-foot-7 Osweiler is expected to be signed to an extension at some point.

Brock Osweiler completed 10-of-13 passes for 105 yards and a touchdown in the Broncos' second preseason game.

Poised and efficient, 23-year-old Osweiler is now 16-of-25 passing for 190 yards, two touchdowns, and one pick through two preseason appearances. On Sunday, he tossed a 33-yard score to Cody Latimer over the top of 49ers rookie CB Dontae Johnson. If Peyton Manning were ever injured, Osweiler would take over Denver's juggernaut offense and quite possibly flirt with QB1 fantasy stats.

According to the Denver Post, Broncos backup QB Brock Osweiler has shown "inconsistency during OTAs and early in training camp."

Osweiler reportedly performed well in Denver's Saturday night scrimmage, but his practice performances have left something to be desired. The 23-year-old Arizona State alum is someone to monitor in Dynasty leagues as a possible heir apparent to Peyton Manning. Manning will be 38 1/2 when the season starts.

According to the Denver Post, Broncos No. 2 quarterback Brock Osweiler "looks ready" to lead Denver's offense in the event of a Peyton Manning injury.

The Post reported in May that the Broncos "really like" their 2012 second-round pick, who was solid during OTAs. Only 23 years old, Osweiler is an interesting Dynasty prospect who could flirt with QB1 value in re-draft leagues if Peyton missed time. The Broncos have great weapons and play with a fast pace.

According to the Denver Post, the Broncos still "really like" No. 2 QB Brock Osweiler.

There have been the faintest of whispers that the Broncos would consider a quarterback on day one of the draft, but it's not going to happen for the league's preeminent "win now" franchise. The No. 57 overall pick of the 2012 draft, Osweiler has attempted only 20 regular-season passes.

The Denver Post expects Brock Osweiler to depart via free agency before getting a chance to start for the Broncos.

Osweiler, the No. 57 overall pick in 2012, will be a free agent following the 2015 season. Peyton Manning is 38 years old, but is under contract through 2016 and is coming off an MVP season. Osweiler will likely have to decide if he wants to stay in town as Peyton's possible successor or if he'd rather compete for a gig elsewhere. He went 38-of-58 for 368 yards with no touchdowns and two interceptions in the 2013 preseason.

The Denver Post says QB Brock Osweiler has been the Broncos' most improved player between last year's training camp and this one.

Things are slowing down for the strong-armed, 6'7/242 Osweiler in his second NFL season. It doesn't look like he'll have any trouble beating out Zac Dysert for the backup job and still projects as the franchise's quarterback of the future. Peyton Manning is entering his age-37 season.

Broncos 2012 second-round pick Brock Osweiler has reportedly showed a "power arm" in practices and VP of Football Operations John Elway likes Osweiler's "mental makeup and swagger."

Osweiler is "clearly" Denver's No. 2 QB and heir apparent to Peyton Manning, per the Denver Post. The Post anticipates the Broncos using a third-day draft pick on a developmental passer like Miami of Ohio's Zac Dysert in order to get three quarterbacks in the meeting room with Manning. Osweiler is an intriguing long-term prospect in Dynasty fantasy leagues. Peyton turned 37 in March.

Both coach John Fox and executive John Elway said they consider Brock Osweiler the quarterback of the future.

Osweiler was limited to strict clipboard duty in his rookie season as Peyton Manning played in all 16 games. But the Broncos' brass liked what they saw out of their second-round pick in practice. "Brock made the progress that we thought he would," Elway said. Manning will turn 37 years old in March.

Playing the entire second half, Broncos rookie Brock Osweiler completed just 5-of-11 passes for 38 yards against the Seahawks in the second preseason game.

Denver was outgained 302 yards to 37 after halftime, as Osweiler was severely outplayed by fellow rookie Russell Wilson, who led three touchdown drives over 68 yards apiece. In a preview of what would likely occur should Peyton Manning miss time, the Broncos offense was thoroughly inept with Osweiler under center. "I'm concerned with all of our depth at this point," conceded coach John Fox.

Rookie Brock Osweiler is the No. 3 quarterback on Denver's initial depth chart, with Caleb Hanie listed as Peyton Manning's primary backup.

It's just a veteran's courtesy for Hanie, as beat writer Jeff Legwold recently reported Osweiler has been "solidly" the No. 2 thus far in team drills. If the Broncos don't pursue another veteran on the free agency or trade (Matt Moore?) markets, Osweiler is expected to open the season as Manning's top backup.

The Denver Post anticipates second-round pick Brock Osweiler breaking camp as the Broncos' No. 2 quarterback barring preseason implosion.

Per beat writer Jeff Legwold, Osweiler has been "solidly" the No. 2 so far in team drills, ahead of Caleb Hanie and Adam Weber. The Broncos have reportedly been pleased by offseason tweaks to Osweiler's throwing motion, which was largely sidearm at Arizona State. He's someone to track in Dynasty leagues.

According to the Denver Post, second-round pick Brock Osweiler has shown "footwork that is rare for a quarterback so tall."

That's in addition to Osweiler's noted arm strength and "quality mobility." Per reporter Jeff Legwold, Osweiler is "already lining up as the team's No. 2," though he should continue rotating snaps with Caleb Hanie and Adam Weber behind Peyton Manning. Osweiler won't be handed Denver's backup job, but it sounds like he has a good shot at earning it outright.

Second-round pick Brock Osweiler worked as the Broncos' No. 2 quarterback during Saturday's practice.

He had been working as the No. 4, but saw action as the No. 3 on Friday before getting a shot as Peyton Manning's primary backup on Saturday. Osweiler impressed for the most part, but is considered a project and figures to be the No. 3 behind one of Caleb Hanie or Adam Weber this season.
