22-Year-Old QuarterbackQB
Arizona Cardinals
2018 Fantasy Outlook
The 10th overall pick in this year's draft, Rosen will compete in training camp with Sam Bradford for the starting job. He likely won't win it, but Rosen is at least in a good situation. Bradford is injury prone and clearly just a placeholder until the rookie is ready. Plus, new offensive coordinator Mike McCoy has a long history of playing to his quarterback's strength, which for Bradford likely means high-percentage throws in lieu of attacking downfield with his average-at-best arm. That should work for Rosen, as well. While scouts praised his footwork, mechanics and ability to quickly process information at the line, they also questioned his arm strength. When the Cardinals do make Rosen the starter, he should jump in without altering the passing game much. Expect a lot of short and intermediate throws that take advantage of Rosen's accuracy and allow the offense's two proven playmakers - David Johnson and Larry Fitzgerald - to gobble up yards after the catch. Getting rid of the ball quickly will also help protect Rosen from an offensive line that allowed 52 sacks last year, though the team made modest upgrades. Read Past Outlooks

Rosen reported for the first day of the Cardinals' offseason program Monday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
ANALYSIS
Since the Cardinals hired Kliff Kingsbury, Rosen has been the subject of trade rumors due to the coach's affinity for 2018 Heisman Trophy winner Kyler Murray, who opted to try his hand in the NFL instead of pursuing a career in MLB. Throughout the offseason, it has been reported that a number of teams have inquired about Rosen, and at least one of them offered a formal trade proposal, per The Arizona Republic. The 10th overall pick in the 2018 draft, Rosen wasn't put in a position to succeed as a rookie, playing behind a porous offensive line, operating under two offensive coordinators and having little skill-position talent aside from David Johnson, Larry Fitzgerald and Christian Kirk (foot). It's difficult to forecast Rosen's future until the Cardinals make a decision on the quarterback front.
