Josh Rosen Prefers Giants Over Browns In NFL Draft

UCLA quarterback and top draft prospect Josh Rosen will reportedly miss the Cactus Bowl on December 26 after suffering a concussion late in the season.

Rosen has reportedly expressed concern about landing in Cleveland, which takes its 0-14 record to Chicago on Sunday. The Browns have always been considered the most dysfunctional franchise in the National Football League, and based on their 0-14 mark thus far this season and their 4-42 record overall since 2015, you can see why players would be reluctant to suit up for Cleveland. It's much more likely that Cleveland actually ends up with the top TWO picks, courtesy of the offseason trades the Browns made with the Texans. It's hard to blame anyone for not wanting to play in Cleveland, but Rosen heading back to UCLA and risking further injury behind a struggling offensive line would make less sense than being the top overall pick.

Rosen suffered his second concussion of the season in his last game, but is still hoping to play in the Cactus Bowl Tuesday against Kansas State.

Rosen would certainly fit a major need for Cleveland, who expect to hold two top-five picks after acquiring the Houston Texans' first round pick previous year in order to pick Deshaun Watson.




Former Giants GM Jerry Reese and Jets GM Mike Maccagnan attended UCLA's game against USC in November to scout both Rosen and top QB prospect Sam Darnold.

Rosen plans to talk with his parents after the Cactus Bowl for a "serious conversation" before making a final decision about his future.

He started by joking,"Maybe I like my team more than some other guys", then explained why he's understanding of those who choose not to play. "They know I would never say anything". The Giants now have the second overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft due to their 2-12 record. "Quarterback is unique - we'll take a few licks here and there, but nothing like the beating those guys take". "And hopefully guy will continue to grow and get better, but you also have to continue to get better at the position".
