UCLA QB Josh Rosen Reportedly Doesn’t Want To Get Drafted By The Browns, May Stay In School To Avoid Getting Picked By Cleveland
UCLA star QB Josh Rosen really doesn’t want to get picked by the Cleveland Browns in the upcoming NFL draft and may pull an Eli Manning to avoid getting drafted by them. According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter Rosen might actually consider not going into this year’s draft if the Browns are seriously considering picking him up with the first pick in the draft.
UCLA quarterback Josh Rosen would prefer to play for the Giants over the Browns and would be hesitant to come out in next year’s NFL draft if he knew that Cleveland was going to take him with the No. 1 overall pick, according to league sources familiar with the situation.
Privately, Rosen has expressed concern about winding up in Cleveland and would rather be with a more stable franchise, such as the Giants.
Rosen plans to sit down with his parents after the Cactus Bowl for a “serious conversation” before making a final decision about whether to turn pro. Whether Cleveland has the No. 1 overall pick could influence his decision, according to a source.
Of course Rosen isn’t the first player to not want to go to a team that wanted to draft him number one overall. Back in 2004 Eli Manning forced the Chargers, who had drafted him with the first pick, to trade him on draft night to the NY Giants when he refused to sign with them.
Can’t blame Rosen for not wanting to play for the Browns, they’ve probably been the worst franchise in sports for the last 10 years.
