Josh Rosen gives thoughtful answer to 'should draft prospects play in bowl?'

UCLA quarterback Josh Rosen is joining the ranks of college players skipping their final bowl game, but he's not doing it by choice.

Rosen has reportedly expressed concern about landing in Cleveland, which takes its 0-14 record to Chicago on Sunday. The Browns would clinch the top pick for the second straight season if they lose to the Bears in a game beginning at 1 p.m. or the Giants beat the Arizona Cardinals in a game starting at 4:25 p.m. Johnny Manziel was selected at the end of the first round of the 2014 draft and played two seasons with the Browns. Whether Cleveland has the No. 1 overall pick could influence his decision, ESPN reported, citing a source familiar with the situation.

UCLA quarterback Josh Rosen said Saturday that he remains in the concussion protocol but is still hoping to play in Tuesday's Cactus Bowl against Kansas State if he is cleared. NY would clinch no worse than the No. 2 pick with losses in each of its last two games.

"I didn't say anything about the Browns", Darnold told reporters after a Trojans' practice.

The Chargers back at that time were bad, but have been more stable lately despite the team moving from San Diego to Los Angeles.

UCLA quarterback Josh Rosen said at a recent press conference that he plans to look at the National Football League after the Cactus Bowl, in which the Bruins are slated to battle Kansas State on December 26.

It's nearly certain that the Browns will take a quarterback with their top pick, which will likely be the No. 1. Furthermore, one of this NFL Draft class' best prospects might rethink entering the professional ranks if Cleveland is committed to selecting him. "Quarterback is unique - we'll take a few licks here and there, but nothing like the beating those guys take".

"But if they've locked in their future earnings to take care of their kids or families, I think people should really look into their story and see how football is affecting their life".
