Josh Rosen isn't holding back"even if the NFL thinks he should

Josh Rosen shouldn't be doing this. He should be measured and restrained, and at all costs, should avoid controversy. But he just can't help himself.

"I am not going to be fake," Rosen says. "I will not be a robot."

His family doesn't want the spotlight shining on him for any of his many controversial opinions. His coaches at UCLA don't want it, either. The last thing they want is the sophomore quarterback projected to go at the top of the NFL draft in a few years doing a 45-minute interview with Bleacher Report where nothing"concussions, politics, social activism"is off the table.

So when you meet this 19-year-old walking, talking paradox who was protected by UCLA for the first year-and-a-half of his college career, you don't know what to expect. Then he speaks his mind like he never has, and there's only one thing left to do.

Tell the story of The Beautiful, Brash Mind of Josh Rosen.

Rosen won't be stuffed into some prepackaged, sterilized template. He won't be who society says he should be. Who you say he should be. Who NFL teams say he should be.
