Josh Rosen has successfully won me over, and Im fully onboard.
I went down a rabbit hole last night with a couple of Rosen interviews. The man knows how to speak, and he is so intriguing. Most players keep their mouths shut and say as little as possible ahead of the draft. Theyll do whatever it takes to play the game.
Rosen is different, and I like that. The man has a chip on his shoulder, he says what he thinks and he doesnt back down. Check out the way he carries himself in the interviews below, and then try to convince me that the man isnt smart as hell.
Josh Rosen responds to questions about his character:
“You dont want yes men all over the place, because thats not how successful people function. I want to be the GOAT. … If my job is to be a waterboy for a year, Im going to be the best waterboy in the damn country.” pic.twitter.com/pPxr3BlHol

I love his comments about being surrounded by yes men. That happens all too often in all fields of life. You see it in business, politics and sports. Lots of athletes love embracing the entourage mentality that can lead to some very bad decisions. Clearly, Rosen doesnt have a problem with that issue.
Hes not going to be the first overall pick, but Im cheering for the guy.
