Whether he is going to be drafted by the Cleveland Browns or not, UCLA quarterback Josh Rosen has officially declared for the NFL Draft. Rosen, who could be one of the top players selected in the upcoming NFL Draft, announced his decision to enter the NFL Draft with a released statement on his Twitter account.
Rosen completed 62.9 percent of his pass attempts this season for 3,756 yards and 26 touchdowns with 10 interceptions in 11 games for the Bruins. While the injury issues were not as damaging to his season as the 2016 season, Rosen did get banged up with a concussion in the middle of the season. That cost him one game. In a high-profile showdown against USC and Trojans quarterback Sam Darnold, Rosen passed for 421 yards and three touchdowns, although UCLA came up five points short against the eventual Pac-12 champions.
In three years at UCLA, Rosen passed for 9,341 yards and 59 touchdowns with 26 interceptions in 30 games. Rosen is expected to be one of the top quarterback prospects in the NFL Draft and could potentially be the number one draft pick. There was some question if Rosen would hold off on declaring for the draft if it meant the Browns would potentially draft him. Now, Rosen is free for the taking if Cleveland wants him. The Browns own the first and fourth overall picks in the draft. After a disappointing rookie season by former Notre Dame quarterback Deshone Kizer, the Browns going back to draft a QB would not be stunning at all.
