Josh Rosen Draft Profile

Josh Rosen Draft

Strengths:

  • Arm strength
  • Accurate to all levels
  • Footwork
  • Technique
  • Effortless release
  • Has experience under center
  • Extremely confident

Analysis: Josh Rosen has all the physical tools you look for in a franchise quarterback. He grew up as a tennis prodigy but turned his focus to football and was groomed at a young age to become a future signal caller. Tennis helped Rosen master his footwork and delivery balance. He anchors himself in the pocket and doesn’t creep around needlessly. His coordination between eyes and feet are seamless. Rosen’s mechanics are terrific, easily the best in this draft class. He rarely over-strides and throws with consistent front knee bend. Throwing motion and follow-through are effortless. He knows how to throw receivers open and can make any throw to any level of the field. There is talk that Rosen’s arm strength isn’t elite, but on tape I see the opposite. He dealt with shoulder injuries that may have impacted his power, but when healthy, Rosen can zip the ball with ease. He has the ability to put touch on the ball when needed. Very good usage of shoulder fakes and hitches to move defenders or buy additional time for receivers to uncover.

Weaknesses:

  • Durability
  • Gets rattled when pressure in consistent
  • Inconsistent decision-making
  • Poor deep throw completion rate
  • Lacks mobility
  • Throw on the run accuracy is terrible
  • Attitude
  • Passion for the game
  • Leadership qualities

Analysis: For all the physical tools Rosen possesses, durability is a major concern. He carries a slight build and has had injury issues dating back to high school. At times, Rosen is way too casual in his pocket set-up. Decision-making is lacking. Too often he tries to play hero ball and throws the ball where it shouldn’t be thrown. Refuses easy throws at times. Poor career deep ball completion rate. Does not challenge safeties enough. You would not mistake Rosen as a mobile quarterback. Completed just 42.4 percent of his throws when forced to move. Everything listed above is Rosen’s physical ‘weaknesses’, but his greatest challenge to become a legitimate NFL quarterback has to do with his mental capacity and attitude. Scouts have questioned his passion for football and whether he will be a willing student. There has been talk that Rosen is ‘uncoachable’ and is not viewed as a leader by his teammates. If he can’t get grown men to follow him or believe he is the guy, it can ruin a locker room or his potential to succeed at the next level.

What the executives say: “He wasn’t the guy everyone rallied around in college and you don’t have to dig around for too long to find people who said he was hard to coach. He’s definitely talented. Nobody questions that. But he’s going to have to get grown men to buy into him as their leader. That is not a given.” — NFL Executive
