NFL Draft Board Analysis:

Highest pick on the NFL Draft Board:

The first 2018 NFL mock draft belongs to Walterfootball.com. Although Josh Rosen showed top five pick promise, his 2016 injury puts some doubt in my mind about where he will ultimately end up.

Most likely destination from the NFL Draft Board:

The Cleveland Browns will still need a quarterback in 2018. And, if Walter Football has Josh Rosen going #2 to the Cleveland Browns (and their new head coach), who am I to argue.

Comparative position ranking on the NFL Draft Board:

Right now, Josh Rosen is right behind Sam Darnold at pick #2. There is a full season of football ahead of us and how it all shakes out is still a mystery. Although, Josh Rosen has NFL franchise quarterback potential. So, it is hard to imagine him falling out of the top ten picks. If the shoulder surgery went as well as the claims are, he should be a top five pick.

Comments:

  • Great footwork.Josh Rosen’s feet are constantly moving. Great movement in the pocket
  • Josh Rosen also played tennis in high school. This is possibly why his feet are so active in the pocket.
  • First UCLA Bruin true freshman to start a season opener.
  • NFL Teams will dig into Rosen’s medical history. Shoulder Surgery ended Rosen’s 2016 season. At first it looked like it didn’t need surgery. UCLA Head Coach, Jim Mora, “I know that in talking to Josh’s family and Josh’s dad is a very, very well-known and distinguished orthopedic surgeon, they are very pleased with the results, so, to me, that’s very encouraging”
  • After two series in his college debut, reportedly told Jim Mora, “This ain’t that tough.”
  • Doesn’t give up on a play. But that sometimes hurts him. Will occasionally make a bad decision, or get sacked.
  • Needs to work on decisions when to take a sack, throw it away, or try to keep the play alive.
  • However, very decisive and accurate when the play develops as planned.
  • Able to work through reads quickly.
  • Sometimes scrambles into a sack.
  • Works from shotgun. Will need to work from center or in the pistol in NFL.
