Josh Rosen is not the jerk everyone thinks he is

"He was doing really, really well in the OTAs and training camp previous year and then he missed four weeks with a hamstring [injury] and I don't think he ever recovered". These factors are among the reasons the quarterback has polarized opinion so much. "I think he can go 69, 70 miles an hour".

"If I got the opportunity to go and sit behind him for one or two or even three years and learn everything I could, grabbing him whenever I had a question, and hopefully he would answer it for me". He's a great dude, I love hanging around him and being with him, and whoever gets him is extremely lucky. I think I make good decisions. And if I tried to, my teammates would see right through it. You have to own your mistakes.

There's no consensus on who the best quarterback in the 2018 NFL Draft is, and that won't change after Saturday's on-field workouts at the NFL Scouting Combine. That's what I'm trying to show. "And honestly I feel like I let my self down, I let my teammates down during this last season when I turned the ball over so much". I'm really just here to try to put my best foot forward, give it my all, and show teams why I should be with their organization. Your teammates don't want a fake shell of yourself. Me and Max were really good friends. "Teammates want you to be you every single day, so that you're that reliable rock they can count on".

Numerous same criticisms have been made of Baker Mayfield, who acquired a Johnny Manziel comparison because of his off-field actions that include a 2017 drunken arrest and a demeanor that can be perceived as arrogance.

His throwing performance at the combine still doesn't tell us how accurate he'll be when the pressure's on in a real game situation in the NFL. That's what's so cool about it is I'm not playing for my own passions or exclusively for my own passions.

And maybe, just maybe, the same was said of Elway.


"I really want to prove to people that I'm capable of leading a franchise, but it doesn't have to be the number one team to select me", he said. Mayfield likely will be one of their options at either spot.

The Browns own the No. 1 and No. 4 overall picks in this year's draft. "I'm not a big rah-rah guys".

Allen and Darnold have trained together in their pre-draft work, and Allen said earlier this year that he knew he had "a lot of flaws as a quarterback" but "can be that guy to lead a team". And while they are open to trading it, there's an argument to be made that they should take a quarterback.

Rosen was asked if the criticism and the questions bother him.

"Because I felt like it was just the best decision for me", Darnold said Friday.

"I don't think that's my position to be talking about anyone else or to say I'm the best quarterback in the draft", he said when pressed on the matter.
