Report NFL exec believes the Browns could make a disastrous selection with the No. 1 pick

A recent report claimed that Rosen would opt to stay at UCLA for his final season should Cleveland secure the No. 1 pick, which came out prior to the Browns' solidifying their draft spot with a Week 16 loss.

Rosen has publically supported the idea of players skipping bowl games to prevent career-threatening injuries in a game typically viewed as an exhibition matchup.

When asked Wednesday how he would look in a Browns uniform, Darnold told reporters that he doesn't prefer any team, saying he would be "honored to play for any (NFL) team".

Sam Darnold wouldn't have a problem playing for the Browns.

PASADENA, CA - NOVEMBER 24: Josh Rosen #3 of the UCLA Bruins leaves the field after sitting out the second half against the California Golden Bears at Rose Bowl on November 24, 2017 in Pasadena, California.

If the Browns do decide to take Rosen, they could always pursue a trade, such as the one seen with Eli Manning and Philip Rivers. But there will be scouts and coaches who absolutely won't want him to be talking like that, because that's the kind of talking and thinking that gets other players to question things. In addition, Mel Kiper Jr. ranks the Trojans quarterback as the draft's fifth best prospect and second-best quarterback behind Rosen. In this scenario, the Browns could try to use some of those assets to trade back up, likely from the pick received from the Houston Texans to get their quarterback or simply sit tight and trust no one else is going to grab their guy.

There's a certain courage, whether Rosen realizes it or not, to his willingness to speak so openly about so many institutions that have been baked into the National Football League experience. Otherwise, Rosen will be proven right and he won't be the last one to avoid the Browns.
