Josh Rosen declares for NFL draft

A short three years after being hailed as the savior of UCLA football, quarterback Josh Rosen‘s UCLA career is done as the star junior declared for the NFL draft on Wednesday, forgoing his senior year with a chance to be one of the top picks this April.

As a junior, the former five-star prospect set UCLA’s single-season passing record with 3,756 yards, eclipsing Brett Hundley’s mark from 2012, despite missing almost three whole games due to two separate concussions. He did not play in what would be UCLA finale, as the medical staff held him out of the Bruins’ bowl game.

More on Rosen’s decision.

    too bad he was surrounded by a bad team/coaches

    Watching JR sling the ball all around the Rose Bowl was a blast to watch the last 3 seasons, even if the final game results weren’t what Bruin fans wanted a lot of the time. Best wishes to Josh at the next level and I’ll certainly be keeping track of how he does on Sundays. Go Bruins!

    I classy way to go out. I’m happy for JR. I think he’s gotten some bad ink regarding his “attitude,” and believe that he will shine in the NFL. He’s smarter than the average NFL QB–and has the perfect skill set for today’s NFL game. I wish him all the best.

    Thank you for being a Bruin showing a class act. The Texas A&M game was one of the best performances by you and a bruin team I can remember. You will be a class act in the Pros, I have no doubt.

    We will never forget you Joss.

    Congratulations and Thank you, Josh for your effort, toughness and willingness to speak your mind. I didn’t always agree with what you said but know you said it because it was what you believed, not for attention (see Lavar Ball).
    Good Luck at the next level.

    Damn Josh, I was looking forward to some Marcus Mariota style 50 yard runs next year. Oh well here’s hoping you find a O line in your future.

    This is the only time I’ve ever heard a football player heading to the NFL thank his professors.
    Most have never met a professor.
    Good luck JR.

    Someone has to go to Cleveland. Hopefully it is Darnold. Then Rosen can go to a team with a chance of winning.
