Rosen, Darnold have nothing in common except being the best
INDIANAPOLIS The two California kids likely will be the first two quarterbacks off the board and their worth is certainly in the eye of the beholder, because they are so very different.

Just listen to how they answer a simple question: Are you the best quarterback in the NFL draft?
Josh Allen, the strapping Wyoming gunslinger, is also part of the discussion, but is considered more of a project. The Giants were scheduled to meet Friday night with Darnold, Rosen and Allen.

Rosen is the best pure passer and NFL scouts love the way the ball spins out of his hand. He is the most ready to play right away, smart and polished. He is not especially mobile think Manning in the pocket and does have an injury history (shoulder surgery two years ago, two concussions this past season). He is opinionated and has an edgy personality that will intrigue some and scare off others. His skills are obvious; his ability to lead a team and be the face of a franchise is less obvious.
If they think I’m a good player, but not a good fit for their personality profile, you can respect that, Rosen said. I’m not going to present a fake image of myself. I think you have to be yourself. You have to be authentic.
The talk here at the NFL Scouting Combine all week has been the Jets are planning to be aggressive bidders for Cousins, the 29-year-old quarterback who will be a free agent on March 14. The Jets are desperate to find an answer at quarterback and like what they have Robert Covington Youth jersey seen from Cousins in his three years as a starter for the Redskins.
There had been speculation that the Browns would be in the chase for Cousins, but that talk has cooled. The general belief around the league is the Browns will target Bengals free agent AJ McCarron and draft another quarterback with the first pick next month.
The Jets are expected to make a monster offer to Cousins, but it might not come down to money. The tougher task for Gang Green will be selling Cousins on coming to a team that has not made the playoffs since 2010 and lost 22 games in the last two seasons.
Cousins is expected to get around $30 million per season with a large portion of the contract guaranteed. ESPN reported that most of the final four teams are preparing short-term deals, possibly three years.
