UCLA’s Josh Rosen has become somewhat of a spectacle. As a result, he has tumbled down draft boards. With Drew Brees nearing the end of his career, will the Saints gamble on the outspoken talent?
His sophomore year was cut short by injury and a number of reports damning his character. He is now considered a mid- to late-first round talent.
The issue a lot of people seem to have with Rosen is his attitude. Matt Miller revealed earlier this week that coaches and teammates have said Rosen is ‘uncoachable… and a prick’.
If Rosen shows himself as an undeniable talent at QB this season, will the Saints be able to see past his divisive personality?
Sean Payton has always preached that good-character guys are essential to a cohesive team. They aren’t entirely necessary to a winning team.
The ’85 Bears won the Super Bowl with Jim McMahon at QB – one of the least liked players of the time.
Winning seems to be the best medicine for these sorts of issues. Rosen’s character concerns will be less of a problem if he steers his Bruins to a national title this season.
So if it’s obvious that the talent is there with Rosen, and if he falls to the Saints, do they pull the trigger?
