Mora: Josh Rosen needs to be challenged intellectually

Josh Rosen takes advanced QB class from Packers Aaron Rodgers

Josh has a lot of interests in life.

Still, Mora tried to tamp down the controversy by re-iterating that Rosen is "without a doubt" the "number one quarterback in the draft". "Millennials, once they know why, they're good", Mora explained.

Jim Mora's sideline commentary isn't doing much to improve quarterback Josh Rosen's draft stock. It's up to either the Cleveland Browns, New York Giants (or possibly Buffalo Bills), or the New York Jets to nab Rosen. Mora said he thinks Rosen is the most talented quarterback in the draft but said Rosen needs to be challenged because he is a millennial.

It was odd to hear Rosen's college coach say another QB should be taken over his own guy, but Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk was told that Mora's remarks had nothing to do with helping Rosen avoid Cleveland.


Ex-UCLA coach Jim Mora made waves when he said a week ago the Cleveland Browns should take USC product Sam Darnold over his former quarterback, Josh Rosen. "He's a franchise-changer. He's got the ability to have an immediate impact".

But he added that Josh is a "millennial" and hinted that this might be some sort of a problem for Rosen's concentration level.

According to reports, Rosen was a bit taken aback by the comments from his ex-coach. His arm talent, intelligence, and his ability to see the game and diagnose the game is rare.

In a story published Monday by King on Monday Morning Quarterback, Mora said that Darnold's "don't-worry, be-happy ethos" and his "underdog mentality that I think will fit so well in Cleveland, a franchise that's really been down" is why the former Trojan would be the better fit in Cleveland. Third, Mora is making Rosen's process more hard by opening his mouth. And then if I was one of the NY teams, I'd take Josh like that [snaps fingers]. He was 17-19 in the last three seasons after going 29-11 through the first three seasons. Teams sometimes shy away from players with overt political opinions (Rosen once wore an anti-President Donald Trump hat) or players who are passionate about things other than football.
