The Arizona Cardinals have one of the most technically sound and intelligent quarterbacks a franchise can have in a second-year player. He knows how to read a defense, process his reads, and get the ball out with an uber quick release. Like I said earlier, Rosen compares to Matt Ryan in the best way possible.
But, he’s not perfect. Rosen tends to trust his arm a bit too much which leads to forcing passes under pressure or in windows that aren’t there. However, these are fixable traits. When it comes to the technical aspect of his game, Kliff Kingsbury will surely love his footwork, body control, and ability to lead a pass.
The Arizona Cardinals will need to surround Josh Rosen with talent to have a better season than 3-13. If Steve Keim can do so in free agency and the draft, he would be wise to avoid trading Rosen as the coach-quarterback combination of Kingsbury-Rosen projects as one that can dominate the NFL.
