Josh Rosen already a polarizing figure

Share

Rosen has thrown 26 touchdowns and 10 interceptions this year for the Bruins wile the Browns have already clinched the No. 1 pick in the 2018 Draft.

Rosen has publically supported the idea of players skipping bowl games to prevent career-threatening injuries in a game typically viewed as an exhibition matchup.

"Whenever I come out to go to the National Football League, I think I'd be honored to play for any team", Darnold said Wednesday as the Trojans prepare to face Ohio State in the Cotton Bowl, according to ESPN.

If by some chance the Browns are able to change Rosen's mind, they will be getting a solid player.

USC quarterback Sam Darnold evidently would not have a problem playing for the Cleveland Browns.

The New York Giants now hold the No. 2 pick and are expected to move on from former franchise QB Eli Manning. But with the first pick in the second round, Cleveland could always jump up into a late first-round pick for a quarterback, which would be all the more appealing given the fifth-year option it would have on a potentially successful signal-caller.

If the Browns do decide to take Rosen, they could always pursue a trade, such as the one seen with Eli Manning and Philip Rivers. Last year, the Chicago Bears gave the San Francisco 49ers a third and fourth round pick in 2017 as well as a 2018 third round pick so they could select Mitchell Trubisky.

Neither quarterback has to enter the draft.

A swap with the Broncos or Jets comes with a substantially higher risk and would require huge stones on the behalf of Dorsey.

If he does declare, some Browns fans thought he was a sure thing with the No. 1 overall pick. In this scenario, the Browns could try to use some of those assets to trade back up, likely from the pick received from the Houston Texans to get their quarterback or simply sit tight and trust no one else is going to grab their guy. The word egotistical was mentioned many times in referring to Rosen.

ESPN's Adam Schefter, citing league sources, reported Sunday morning that Rosen would prefer to land in NY with the Giants rather than end up in Cleveland where the Browns have started 28 different quarterbacks since 1999.

Rosen is absolutely right.
