Then there is this from the Arizona Republic: "Sources indicate that Osweiler is indeed leaning toward that direction, but as of Thursday night, Osweiler's father, John, said in a text message that his son is 'going over some last-minute details' and that the family hopes to announce a decision Friday."
There has been no announcement yet of a news conference.
If true, this would be a bit of a surprise. The 6-foot-8 Osweiler has started 15 games and was the first Sun Devils quarterback to eclipse 4,000 yards passing, but it seems like a long shot for him to get selected before the third round. Another year of seasoning could have made him a first-day or even first round pick.
And, if true, it would be a big blow for new coach Todd Graham, who would have failed a major recruiting job: Making his starting quarterback and top locker room leader want to stay.
If Osweiler bolts, the frontrunner to win the job would be sophomore Mike Bercovici, who has a big arm but little experience. He was 2-of-3 for 15 yards in 2011.
