[BN] Blitz newsletter: Should Bills target the 'picture-perfect, pure passing quarterback'?

Listen to what was said about UCLA quarterback Josh Rosen this week:

  • "Rosen is the best pure passer I’ve seen in several years," said NFL Network analyst Mike Mayock.
  • "...the most artistic, picture-perfect, pure passing quarterback, it’s Josh Rosen," said ESPN's Mel Kiper.
  • "Josh throws a perfect ball," said one of his UCLA receivers. "Dig routes, curls. He doesn't let it go outside of the framework of your body. He throws a ball that's right under your facemask. You can catch it and just go."

Uh huh. And after all that, some analysts still have him as the third overall QB, behind USC's Sam Darnold and Wyoming's Josh Allen. What could that mean for the Bills?

"That would leave Rosen as a prime Buffalo Bills trade-up target," Mark Gaughan wrote, "presuming the Bills have a high enough grade on the UCLA QB to try to move into the top five."
