Josh Rosen is Eli Manning. That conclusion, from Pro Football Focus draft analyst Steve Palazzolo, should get the attention of New York Giants fans. Rosen, of course, is the player most often mocked to the Giants as the heir apparent to Manning at quarterback for the Giants.
Palazzolo wrote that while Rosen’s final numbers show year-to-year consistency “when it comes to a game-by-game or throw-by-throw basis, he’s actually closer to a high-volatile player in the mold of Eli Manning or Jameis Winston.”
Here is Palazzolo’s full conclusion about Rosen:
Understanding the good and bad that Rosen brings to the table is crucial to his evaluation. From his ability to make plays at the intermediate level to his feel for all necessary NFL throws, Rosen has the skills and aggressiveness to create downfield opportunities at the next level. However, the same aggressiveness that leads to the special plays also leads to far too many turnover-worthy plays. We’ve seen other quarterbacks have success with this style, and there’s certainly an argument to be made that a quarterback capable of adding value, rather than just avoiding turnovers, is preferable.
It’s important to understand that those strengths and weaknesses will work hand in hand, and the top end of Rosen’s play will lead to special games, and perhaps even special seasons, much like Eli Manning has shown throughout his career.
