Jason’s Official 2018 NFL Draft Scouting Report: UCLA QB Josh Rosen

Josh Rosen, QB, UCLA

Scouting Report:

Rosen ended up his career at UCLA by playing in 30 career games, where he had 711 completions, for 9300 passing yards, with 59 passing touchdowns, and 26 interceptions. He also logged 6 rushing touchdowns. Rosen clearly has the size, he has good pocket awareness, he has a strong arm, and good accuracy. He also has good patientce in the pocket, and allows hi receivers time to get open. He does not rush the ball out too quickly, he does not tare down one receiver, and he distributes the ball to all of his eligible receivers. He has a nice deep ball, is a good passing QB while on the run, he does a good job of avoiding pressure in the pocket, and he fits the ball into tight spots with ease. And a huge plus is that fact that he plays both under center, and in the shotgun. On the other side, he does not have the best speed, he suffered an injury in 2016 which limited him to just 6 games played, and he is not known as a running QB. With all of that said, I see Rosen ending being one of the first 4 quarterbacks taken come this April, and should be a top 10 pick.
