Personally, having watched both of them play quite a bit, I like UCLA quarterback Josh Rosen more than I like USC quarterback Sam Darnold. They both may turn out to be great pros, but Rosen is polished and can make all the throws. He’s almost effortless, like a guy we all know. Darnold still makes some dumb throws.
I still believe Darnold is going to go No. 1 to Cleveland. And if they instead pick Josh Allen from Wyoming, I still think Darnold will come off the board prior to Rosen.
Some teams don’t seem to like the fact that Rosen is supposedly cocky and worldly, i.e. has other interests than football.
You know who has other interests besides football? Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers.
In fact, Rodgers is an executive producer of this Destination Dallas series, which profiles a bunch of draft prospects.
So here he is with Rosen, who seems to have a personality very similar to QB1. I’m not John Dorsey, but if I were, I’d take this guy at No. 1. Hell, he just got tutelage from the best in the game.
