There is no denying Josh Rosen is a talented, brilliant young man who has all of the tools to succeed in the NFL. But leading up to the 2018 NFL Draft, the former UCLA star has been facing plenty of criticism and concern regarding his attitude and character. Some have said Rosen doesn’t love football enough, while others appear turned off by his willingness to speak his mind.
So what does Rosen think about all of the critics?
The quarterback, who is expected to be a top 10 pick in this year’s draft, appeared in an interview with FOX Sports’ Colin Cowherd where he revealed the criticism doesn’t really bother him because all he’s worried about is being the best player he can be.
“You don’t want ‘yes men’ all over the place, because that’s not how successful people function. I want to be the GOAT,” Rosen told Cowherd. “If my job is to be a waterboy for a year, I’m going to be the best waterboy in the damn country.”
