Josh Rosen on NFL Draft: 'I dropped and I was pissed'

6 Key NFL Draft Storylines to Follow

In a post-selection interview, Rosen said there were "nine mistakes ahead of me" in the draft, but in his official introduction Friday, he revised that number down to three.

To be clear, his frustration isn't directed at the Arizona Cardinals, who traded up five spots in the first round to select the UCLA quarterback with the 10th pick overall on Thursday night.

Smith called Rosen's comments "idiotic" - "I'm not calling him an idiot, literally", Smith said - and declared that Rosen would regret uttering those words.

B/R's Matt Miller has Rosen ranked as the No. 3 quarterback, behind USC's Sam Darnold and Wyoming's Josh Allen.

"I would actually say that I'm not as angry that there were nine guys ahead of me, just three quarterbacks", Rosen said.




"I coached receivers in Carolina back in the day, and being the coordinator plenty of places, there's plenty of people that have opinions, and everybody's got an opinion, and I got no problem with that". But honestly, it's a blessing in disguise.

One could make the case that the NFC North and South have equally great quarterbacks, if not better ones, but as far as the future goes, neither can touch the West. Goff and Rosen are 23 and 21 years old, respectively, while Wilson and Garoppolo are just 29 and 26, as well.

"I'm basically trying to take his brain and put as much of his brain as I can into mine, so that we we go on the field, if I'm making a check or if I'm making a decision, he in his head is making the same decision at the same exact time". I wasn't really showing it. I got really happy and really motivated.

The Cardinals, though, clearly have no concerns about their new franchise quarterback.

"He looks like he needs to be in the weight room just as much as me, and on top of it all you're going into the National Football League, where grown men whose livelihoods are on the line", Smith said.
