TEMPE, Ariz. -- Arizona State quarterback Brock Osweiler has declared for the NFL draft and will forgo his senior season.

Osweiler made the announcement on Friday after discussing his options with family and incoming Sun Devils coach Todd Graham.

A backup most of the 2010 season, Osweiler became the first Arizona State quarterback to throw for over 4,000 yards as a junior, finishing the season with 4,036 yards while setting school records for completions, attempts and completion percentage. He also threw for 26 touchdowns, fourth-most in school history.

A native of Kalispell, Mont., the 6-foot-8 Osweiler was a basketball recruit for Gonzaga before signing with Arizona State to play football. He has been projected as a mid-round NFL draft pick.
