1. Brock Osweiler

This is the number one reason to watch any Denver Broncos pre-season game. Osweiler is supposed to be the future of the team after Peyton Manning. Thankfully this is the only look we get at him throughout the season for the most part.

Osweiler is an exciting young player. He has a cannon for an arm, can scramble around, and it’s always interesting to hear what spin the announcers put on him being 6-foot-8.

This isn’t the perfect setting to see what the Broncos will get from Osweiler, as he won’t be playing with the first unit offensive line, but I think the Broncos’ backups up front are better than any other year Osweiler’s been here, so he might get a chance to scan the field a bit and make some things happen.

I like watching him play with no consequence.
