Privately, Rosen has expressed concern about winding up in Cleveland and would rather be with a more stable franchise, such as the Giants.

According to ESPN, the top-rated UCLA quarterback prefers to play for the Giants over the Browns, and could possibly choose to delay his entry into the National Football League draft if he knew that Cleveland planned to select him with the No. 1 overall pick in 2018.

Rosen might not play in the Bruins' final game of the season in the Cactus Bowl as he is still in concussion protocol, but he has not officially declared for the NFL Draft in order to discuss his options with his parents after the UCLA season is over. The choice would seem to be between another year as a hero in sunny southern California versus moving to northern OH and becoming another in a long line of cursed quarterbacks. It's much more likely that Cleveland actually ends up with the top TWO picks, courtesy of the offseason trades the Browns made with the Texans.

At a media event before UCLA's bowl, Rosen fielded a question about players who have decided not to play in bowls as they turn their attention toward the NFL. CBSSports.com NFL Draft analyst Chris Trapasso has pegged Rosen to the Browns with the top overall pick in several different in-season mock drafts this year.
