Sam Darnold, Josh Rosen And The Trading Game

15 pick in the first round.
Keim did make an aggressive play for safety Budda Baker last year, dealing a pair of fourth-round picks to the Bears to move up nine spots in the second round.
Rosen started for three seasons at UCLA, finishing with 9,340 yards passing, 59 touchdowns and 26 interceptions In 30 games.
“I want them to draft me.
I don’t want them to draft someone they think they’re getting and then not get that guy.
Your teammates want you to be you every single day so that you’re that reliable rock that they can count on.” Darnold started the past two seasons at USC, throwing for 7,229 yards with 57 touchdowns.
