Josh Rosen is one of the top prospects in this year’s NFL draft. That doesn’t mean the UCLA quarterback is without questions.
Rosen played only six games as a sophomore because of a shoulder injury. He missed the Bruins’ bowl game in December after being diagnosed with two concussions in a four-week span to end his UCLA career.
He also had only a 17-13 record in three seasons as a starter.
“I wanted to win more,” Rosen said on SiriusXM NFL Radio, via Alex Marvez of the Sporting News. “To be honest, I really didn’t accomplish a lot of the goals that I set out to do, which was really frustrating. All of the individual stuff kind of comes along with team success.
“But I also learned a lot in my three years at UCLA. I learned how to handle a lot of ups and a lot of downs — adversity, success — so it was a blessing in disguise. UCLA is an incredible school. I wouldn’t have attended anywhere else, even in retrospect. I’m glad I went through those three years for good and bad.”
“I’ve made I think some pretty good strides,” Rosen said. “It’s fun to get out there and chuck the ball around.”
