Josh Rosen tops Bleacher Report power rankings
Bleacher Report just released their quarterback power rankings after the 2018 NFL Combine as Josh Rosen is firmly on top.
Now that the 2018 NFL Combine is officially in the books, teams are now preparing for the free agency frenzy and then eventually the 2018 NFL Draft. This is the year of the quarterback as many draft analysts believe it’s the best class of the positional group in years.
Of course, with any player, especially a quarterback, it’s always a 50-50 shot of them living up to the hype being generated throughout the offseason. Out of the Big 4, one has so far emerged as the top quarterback based on this year’s NFL Combine.
Quarterback Josh Rosen out of UCLA looks to have everything a team needs to make him their future franchise quarterback. He’s got the size, stats, leadership, and has the potential to be a Week 1 starter once he hits the NFL.

In an article written by Brad Gagnon of Bleacher Report, Rosen topped his list of quarterback prospects based on the aftermath of this year’s NFL Combine. Here is what he had to say about Rosen and why he’s king of the crop:
Coming from a pro-style offense in the Pac-12, Josh Rosen is this draft’s quintessential pure passer. His numbers steadily improved over the course of his three years as a starter at UCLA, and he’s probably polished enough to start from the get-go at the NFL level. The 6’4″ 21-year-old is particularly fun to watch because his mechanics are close to perfect, and he spins it like few men on the planet can.
Just like any player, Rosen isn’t perfect as the biggest concern any team will have when they draft him in the first round is his injury history. Rosen is entering the NFL after getting shoulder surgery on his throwing side and also had not one but two concussions in his collegiate career.
Besides that, Rosen is easily the best quarterback in this year’s draft and if it wasn’t for his past injuries, would more than likely be the clear-cut option to be the first of his positional group taken off the board. Who knows what is going to happen come draft day but at the end of it all, Rosen has everything and more to thrive in the NFL for years to come.
