Quarterback, Cleveland Browns, NFL
2014, Bachelor of Interdisciplinary Studies
Interdisciplinary studies major Brock Osweiler, a standout Sun Devil quarterback, left ASU as a junior to join the NFL after being drafted in the second-round by the Denver Broncos. But Osweiler finished up his degree with concentrations in political science and sociology in the succeeding off-seasons, and his May 2014 graduation from ASU was the focus of a Denver Post story.
In November 2015, Osweiler stepped in as the Bronco’s starting quarterback when veteran Peyton Manning was sidelined with injuries. His impressive NFL starting performance, which fell on his 25th birthday, earned him AFC Player of the Week honors, soon followed by a Sports Illustrated regional cover story. He remained with the Broncos for the 2015-16 season, earning a Super Bowl ring, and was starting quarterback for the Houston Texans the following season.
Currently, Osweiler is a quarterback with the Cleveland Browns.
Stories (including this ESPN piece and this Business Insider piece) about Osweiler’s performance highlight the learning, analysis and communication skills he has been bringing to his leadership role, on and off the field.
