08:10 AM ET 06.17 | Oklahoma State quarterback commit Luke Del Rio has not had a typical childhood. As the son of Jack Del Rio, the Denver Broncos' defensive coordinator and former head coach of the Jacksonville Jaguars, he's moved 18 times and lived in seven different states. He's used to the praise and criticism that comes with having his family in the public eye. And this summer, he's been picking the brain of Peyton Manning during Broncos OTAs. "I think (Wednesday) was the fifth OTA I've been to. I've been in the quarterback meetings. I'm literally on his hip the entire day. If I was him, I'd be getting kind of annoyed (laughs). This is one of the rarest opportunities that a guy like me can get, and I'm not going to waste it. I'm just taking advantage of it and seizing the opportunity, because I realize how great he is. Being with Blaine (Gabbert) last year, he's a rookie, so you get the whole spectrum of it. You have a first-ballot Hall of Famer, and you have a rookie. I got to see both aspects of it."

The headline is wrong.
It was supposed to read "Peyton Manning Annoys Oklahoma St. Commit"

If I was that kid, I would take full advantage and listen to every word Manning had to say. Without a doubt, he's one of the greatest ever.

On a different note, I'm glad to see Del Rio coaching. I always liked him as a defensive coach.

If it was all about osmosis then the clubhouse attendant would be the first guy drafted every year.

Don't think anyone was saying or implying that.
Would have thought you also would have seen that.
