Rosen is widely considered to be one of the top quarterbacks and top overall players in next year’s draft class, with some rating him higher than USC QB Sam Darnold.
Rosen said recently that he would rather drop a bit in the draft and go to the right team than get drafted higher by the wrong team.
“I’d rather be a lower pick at the right team than a higher at the wrong team,” Rosen said, per Josh Weinfuss.
In addition, Adam Schefter of ESPN reported a few days later that Rosen “would prefer” to play for the Giants over the Browns and would be “hesitant” to leave school early if he knew Cleveland was going to take him with the No. 1 overall pick.
After a skipping the Cactus Bowl and having “serious conversation” with his family regarding his final decision, Rosen has officially entered the draft.
During his college career at UCLA, Rosen threw for 9,301 yards while completing 60.8 percent of his passes to go along with 59 touchdowns and 26 interceptions over the course of 30 games.
