Giants, Dolphins, Chargers Reportedly the Front Runners for Josh Rosen

It’s officially NFL Draft week and all eyes are on the Arizona Cardinals for two reasons:

  • Will they select Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray with the first overall pick?
  • Where and when will they trade second-year quarterback Josh Rosen if they draft Murray?

Unless Arizona shocks the entire football world, it is expected they will draft Murray with the first overall pick and subsequently trade Rosen one year after they traded up to draft him in the 2018 NFL Draft.

The question for the last few months has been where Josh Rosen will end up and ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter gave some clarity to that on Monday morning.

On the latest episode of his podcast “The Adam Schefter Podcast”, Schefter told his guests, NFL Draft experts Mel Kiper Jr. and Todd McShay the three teams that are the front runners for Rosen.

The Cardinals have reportedly wanted a first round pick in return as they should considering they gave up a third and fifth round pick while swapping the 10th and 15th overall picks with the Oakland Raiders to draft Rosen.

Rosen threw for 2,278 yards, 11 touchdowns and 14 interceptions in thirteen starts last season with a supporting cast outside of Larry Fitzgerald and David Johnson that really did him no favors in succeeding.

The Giants have two first round picks (6th and 17th overall), the Dolphins have the 13th overall pick and the Chargers have the 28th overall selection and are looking potentially looking for their long-term quarterback where Rosen could fit that mold.

New York has been a rumored destination since the NFL Scouting Combine but according to a report, they’ve only been willing to offer the 37th overall pick which is a second round pick.

They’ve been linked to the other top quarterbacks in the draft such as Dwayne Haskins, Drew Lock, and Daniel Jones and many expect them to draft a quarterback with one of their first-round picks to groom behind Eli Manning who is entering his 16th season.

Miami is an interesting team because the belief is that they’re tanking this upcoming season in hopes to land one of the top quarterbacks in the 2020 NFL Draft such as Georgia’s Jake Fromm, Oregon’s Justin Herbert or Alabama’s Tua Tagovailoa.

They currently have Ryan Fitzpatrick, Jake Rudock and Luke Falk on the depth chart and acquiring Rosen would be interesting because they could let him be the quarterback for this season and potentially flip him next offseason for a draft pick or draft picks.

However, I don’t seem them moving the 13th pick for Rosen unless they like him over the quarterbacks in this and next year’s draft which probably isn’t likely.

The Los Angeles Chargers seem to be the best destination for Rosen as things stand right now. With the 28th overall pick, the Chargers would be out of the range to draft Murray, Haskins, Lock or Jones and still don’t have the heir to Philip Rivers, who is entering his 16th season in the NFL.

Potentially trading the 28th pick to the Arizona Cardinals for Josh Rosen, and having him sit and learning behind Rivers, could be a perfect situation for both sides.

Rosen could return to southern California where he would be learning behind one of the best quarterbacks of this generation. He would be obtaining valuable information until Rivers decides to retire, which could be coming at any time considering he’s 37 years old and his ninth child is on the way.

Thursday night is going to be a very interesting night as the dominoes start to fall and Arizona has the luxury of controlling the two biggest pieces on the board.

Just think if the browns would have taken Josh Allen

Who have they beat?

It’s bad play calling it’s bad execution. Nick it’s 3 years of baker still not settling in and playing his game

After this year if baker doesn’t prove himself. Would you rather see the browns let him go and find a new QB in the draft?

Nick, you’re the only browns fan that I love❤️ next game will be PSU vs OSU❤️
