Scouting Report: Josh Rosen
School: UCLA Position: Quarterback Class: Junior Height: 6-4 Weight: 210 lbs Projected Draft Round: 1-3
Rosen’s freshmen year showed potential to be a top pick in the draft, displaying NFL skills across the board. He showed veteran-level decision making, executed accurate throws and has good arm strength and solid footwork. The projected trajectory was Heisman / first overall pick, but his sophomore year was a major letdown. As his level of play deteriorated, his political rhetoric escalated, leaving a tremendous range of expectations for the 2017 season. Had a solid 2017 season, with some big wins in big games, like the come from behind victory against Texas A&M. Concerns over his ability to be a leader in the locker room could hurt him, as well as what appears to be a bit of an extended wind up, which could leave him open to strip sacks when he faces NFL pass rushers.
