Rosen was fourth quarterback selected in the first round, dropping to No. 10 where he was selected by the Arizona Cardinals, who traded up to get him. "Everyone always get's mad at Bill Belichick and Chip Kelly for giving these one word answers so I give you more but then you guys lose your minds over it, so pick which one you want!".
Of course, Rosen's fellow quarterbacks in the draft pool, such as Baker Mayfield, Josh Allen and Sam Darnold, are also all millennials. You don't really hear about him too much. There is a belief out there that the rookie doesn't care about football because he was quoted saying that if his NFL career failed he wouldn't have to get a job at McDonalds.
"They are going to get a lot of telephone calls from teams wanting to move up into the top five trying to get ahead of the Denver Broncos for one of the top four quarterbacks on the board". Josh Rosen has a new employer.
The quarterback's father is Charles Rosen, a noted Jewish orthopedic surgeon.
However, being thrown into the fire by a team in a large market with high expectations year in and year out could be damaging to Rosen's development. Maybe Rosen will be it.
Rosen initially was injured in UCLA's game against Washington Oct. 28 when Vita Vea - yeah, this guy - sacked the quarterback. Many believe that his excellent mental understanding of the game and NFL-ready mechanics make him the most pro-ready of any quarterback from this class.
"The biggest thing was motivation". As a sophomore in 2016, Rosen played in only six games as he had surgery on his throwing shoulder.
Another top quarterback prospect, Oklahoma's Baker Mayfield, has had to face the same criticism, though he has two inches over Wilson and proved his pedigree by succeeding Jackson as Heisman Trophy victor last season.
"If I'm not (the starter), I'm going to support the team", Rosen said.
You must remember that Miami had multiple visits with Rosen throughout the draft process and have spoken with former UCLA offensive coordinator and interim coach Jedd Fisch at length about Rosen.
Will the Cleveland Browns be missing out if they don't select Josh Rosen with the number one overall pick? I was really, really angry.
