According to NFL.com's Chase Goodbread, UCLA freshman QB Josh Rosen is "primed to develop into one of college football's next elite passers."
Rosen threw for 319 yards and three touchdowns in Saturday's 37-29 loss to Nebraska in the Foster Farms Bowl. He was also picked off twice, though, including a game-sealing pick on UCLA's final drive. The 6-foot-4, 210-pound freshman finished out the 2015 campaign having thrown for 3,670 yards with a 23/11 TD/INT ratio. He's already being floated as a potential Heisman candidate for next season. For all of Rosen's upside--and there's a ton of it--he's not a finished product yet. The Bruins finished with an underwhelming 8-5 record for the 2015 campaign. Sun, Dec 27, 2015 07:53:00 PM

UCLA freshman QB Josh Rosen completed 26-of-40 passes for 319 yards, three touchdowns and two interceptions in Saturday's 37-29 loss to Nebraska in the Foster Farms Bowl.

Rosen and the Bruins scored 21 points in the first half, but they managed just one touchdown after breaking from the locker room. The 6-foot-4, 210-pound freshman's first interception was more/less meaningless--it came just before halftime and did not lead to points--but the second one came on UCLA's final offensive drive as the team attempted to score a tying touchdown. The 6-foot-4, 210-pound freshman was chased on a roll-out to the left on fourth-and-10, taking a huge hit as he unloaded the ball across his body. It sailed long and was picked off in the end zone by Chris Jones. And that, as they say, was that. The loss surely stings, but Rosen put in an impressive freshman campaign overall. He finished with 3,670 passing yards and a 23/11 TD/INT ratio. Expectations are going to be through the roof for his sophomore season.

UCLA freshman QB Josh Rosen "showed the kind of skills that had NFL personnel types raving," according to Fox Sports' Bruce Feldman.

The true freshman signal caller had a phenomenal season for the Bruins in 2015, completing 59.5 percent of his passes for 3,351 yards with a 20/9 TD/INT rate. The UCLA prospect took the Pac-12 by storm and ran away with the Pac-12 Freshman Offensive Player of the Year award.

UCLA (8-4) plays Nebraska (5-7) in the Foster Farms Bowl on Dec. 26.

The Bruins are seven-point favorites. UCLA is led by freshman sensation QB Josh Rosen, who earned Pac-12 Freshman Offensive Player of the Year honors after completing 59.5 percent of his passes for 3,351 yards with a 20/9 TD/INT rate. The Huskers don't generate much of a pass rush and have a secondary that is prone to giving up big plays, so expect Rosen to close out his first year with a bang. That isn't to say UCLA is a lock to win, here. Nebraska, which hasn't lost eight games since 1957, has a tremendous run defense led by a stout defensive line. UCLA, ravaged by injuries all year, also has holes on defense that Nebraska can exploit if the good Tommy Armstrong Jr. arrives in Santa Clara.

UCLA freshman QB Josh Rosen earns All-Pac-12 first team and Pac-12 Freshman Offensive Player of the Year honors.

The 6-foot-4, 210-pound true freshman finished the regular season, passing for 3,350 passing yards, with 20 touchdown and 9 interceptions. This season, Rosen broke a Bruins' record for consecutive passes without an interception (245), breaking Drew Olson’s record of 199. NFL Network analyst Daniel Jeremiah describes Rosen as "the most gifted QB in college football."

UCLA freshman QB Josh Rosen completed 15-of-30 passes for 220 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 17-9 win over Utah.

Rosen failed to light up the scoreboard, but he did enough to help the Bruins to a victory against a Utah team that looked lost without RB Devontae Booker. The 6-foot-4, 210-pound freshman's thrown at least one touchdown pass in all but one of UCLA's 11 games during this 2015 campaign. He's been playing very clean football of late and has not thrown an interception in any of his last five games. Earlier in November, NFL Media draft analyst Daniel Jeremiah wrote that Rosen's "beautiful to watch," calling him the most gifted quarterback in the land.

NFL Network analyst Daniel Jeremiah notes that UCLA freshman QB Josh Rosen "is the most gifted QB in college football."

The UCLA prospect passed for 340 yards, completing 33-of-57 passes in Saturday's 31-27 loss to Washington State. On the year, Rosen has now completed 61.1% of his passes for 2,904 yards with an 18/7 TD/INT ratio. In another tweet, Jeremiah mentioned that "Rosen is a pure passer" that is "beautiful to watch." While some "mechanically sound QBs look robotic," Jeremiah notes that Rosen "doesn't."

UCLA freshman QB Josh Rosen completed 33-of-57 passes for 340 yards in Saturday's 31-27 loss to Washington State.

While Saturday marked the fifth time that Rosen's thrown for at least 300 yards, this was the first game in which he's failed to throw for a touchdown. On a more positive note than the touchdown void, this was his fourth consecutive contest without an interception. The talented freshman's completing 61.1% of his passes for 2,904 yards with an 18/7 TD/INT ratio. He's gone through the expected freshman ups and downs, but Bruin fans should be thrilled with the overall level of play by the youngster. UCLA will finish the 2015 campaign with road tilts against Utah and USC.
Sun, Nov 15, 2015 09:00:00 PM

UCLA freshman QB Josh Rosen completed 22-of-33 passes for 333 yards and two touchdowns in Saturday's 41-0 win over Oregon State.

Rosen's now thrown at least one touchdown pass in all nine games played during the 2015 campaign. Even more encouraging, the 6-foot-4, 210-pound freshman's avoided throwing an interception in any of his last three games after tossing seven in his first six. Overall, he holds an 18/7 TD/INT ratio while throwing for 2,564 yards. He's progressing nicely as the season nears its close.

UCLA freshman QB Josh Rosen completed 19-of-33 passes for 262 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 35-31 victory over Colorado.

Chosen Rosen and the Bruins surprisingly scuffled with the Buffaloes, perhaps looking forward to Halloween festivities on campus after game. Whatever the reason, they played just well enough to win. This was the first time Rosen hadn't thrown for at least 280 yards since September 19 against BYU.

CBS Sports' Rob Rang believes UCLA freshman QB Josh Rosen stole the spotlight from Cal's Jared Goff, and in doing so, he "certainly looked like a future prospect."

"Rosen's efforts were all the more critical to UCLA's success given that the Bruins lost star running back Paul Perkins - the Pac-12's leading rusher a year ago - to a left knee injury in the first half," Rang wrote. The UCLA prospect was too cool for school guiding UCLA on eight of its first nine possessions for scores. Rosen finished the day with 399 yards and three touchdowns, in the school's 40-24 win over Cal.

UCLA freshman QB Josh Rosen completed 34 of 47 attempts for 399 yards and three touchdowns in the school's 40-24 win over Cal.

When Rosen is on, he is electric. The Bruins quarterback carved up the Cal defense despite losing his counterpart in running back Paul Perkins. This was Rosen's third three touchdown performance of the season. And to think, we get at least two more full seasons to watch the freshman pick apart defenses.

UCLA freshman QB Josh Rosen completed 22-of-42 passes for 325 yards, three touchdowns and two interceptions in Thursday's 56-35 humiliation at the hands of Stanford.

Rosen threw two of his three touchdown passes in the fourth quarter, but Stanford had the game well in hand by that juncture and the 21-point margin doesn't do justice to their complete domination of the Bruins. This was the 6-foot-4, 210-pound freshman's first game with at least three touchdown passes since he fired a trio of scores in Week 1's win over Virginia. Rosen holds a lackluster 12/7 TD/INT ratio this season. He has all the tools to be a star, but there's an understandable layer of rawness there in his first season at the college level.

UCLA freshman QB Josh Rosen completed 22-of-40 passes for 280 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in Saturday's 38-23 loss to Arizona State.

Rosen pulled the Bruins to within 29-23 in the fourth quarter when he hooked up with Thomas Duarte for a 17-yard scoring pass, but the Sun Devils would answer with a safety and a touchdown of their own to pull out the 15-point win. After opening the season with a 351-yard, three-touchdown airshow against Virginia, the 6-foot-4, 210-pound freshman has yet to match either of those marks in any of the four games that have followed, though he has thrown for two touchdowns in each of UCLA's last two contests.

Nearly 20 percent of UCLA freshman QB Josh Rosen's incompletions this season have been drops, according to CFB Film Room.

This excludes throwaways. Leading the way is Jordan Payton with three drops on 18 targets. Rosen needs to eliminate some of the mistakes that popped up last week against BYU, but the receivers could be helping him out more. UCLA faces Arizona on Saturday.
