I haven’t been posting nearly enough about UCLA QB Josh Rosen, who is expected to go very nice in the NFL draft. So it was a nice surprise to get an email from USA Today asking for my comments. Here’s the result from Josh Peter’s article “Josh Rosen can join Sid Luckman on short list at NFL draft”:
