NFL Mock Draft: Josh Rosen goes to Browns

Sam Darnold

Sam Darnold said that he'd be "honored to play for any team", when asked how he would look in a Cleveland Browns uniform. As it stands, Josh Rosen from UCLA would be a solid pick at first overall, but he has expressed that he might not want to play in Cleveland.

Darnold is finishing his redshirt sophomore year at USC by playing in the Cotton Bowl this week and Rosen completed his junior campaign.

"Whenever I come out to go to the National Football League, I think I'd be honored to play for any team", Darnold said, via ESPN.


Rosen is a candidate to be the No. 1 selection in next spring's NFL Draft. Rosen made headlines earlier in the week when a report suggested he was hesitant to enter the draft this year for fear of being drafted by the Browns. Some of these guys really have to support the people around them. But with the first pick in the second round, Cleveland could always jump up into a late first-round pick for a quarterback, which would be all the more appealing given the fifth-year option it would have on a potentially successful signal-caller.

The expectation is that Rosen would prefer to play in NY as Eli Manning's heir. They might want to, and people in the media may not give them that shot that there's a part of them that may want to be in college, that may want to play in this bowl game. ESPN reported that Rosen might skip the draft and return to play for Chip Kelly at UCLA next season if he knows the Browns would take him at No. 1.

Should Dorsey be able to get what amounts to a processing fee for Rosen, he then has the freedom to take his top quarterback with more assets to build the team. Otherwise, Rosen will be proven right and he won't be the last one to avoid the Browns.
