Gollin - Cards traded up to #10 (Oakland) to secure one of the top 4 quarterbacls in this draft, swapping first round picks with Oakland and also giving them picks #79 (3rd round) and 152 (5th round) - not a bad deal to land a possible QBOF. The book on Rosen is that he's intelligent and the best pure natural thrower in this draft; but he "doesn't know when to "hold 'em/fold 'em" and exposes himself too much to injury and is considered (rightly or wrongly) to be "too intelligent."
One of the coolest things to happen to this jaded old Cardinal fan - used to hearing snide remarks from the media on the day after Draft Day - was to watch a panelist on NFLN's morning show jump up and down, while shouting: "I loved what Steve Keim and the Cardinals did to secure their possible QBOF at a cost of only a 3rd and 5th round pick."
USA Today - Rosen has all the physical tools to be a franchise passer at the next level, and the mental prowess to develop quickly...shoulder injury ended 2016 campaign prematurely, but wasted no time proving why he’s in the conversation to be the No. 1 overall pick...
Lindy's - Ranks #1 among QB's...Prototype for any team running a traditional drop-back offense...Reputed to be one of the most gifted pro-stle recruits of the past decade...quick simple motion/ball seems to explode out of hand..consitently throw into tight windows...but pressure can throw Rosen off his game...not much of a threat as a runner....
PFW - Lacks the intangibles to be a consistent winner...Very good mechanics and release/ball comes out of his hands very nice...Can make all the required NFL throws...Can read the field weell and go throght progressions...But has never been the big winner he was supposed to be/sense of entitlement...not the leader you want a QB to be...difficult to coach...Out spoken...very smart (& the first to let you know this)...Flashes exceptional accuracy and then have games where he's way off.
