"It's what I wore in college, and it's just kind of been a lucky number for me", Rosen said.
The Cardinals traded with the Oakland Raiders to move up and take Rosen.
"I think that's probably the unique reason why I get along with my teammates very well is because I'm me", Rosen said. "They're not getting a kid that's going to say stupid things and piss people off unnecessarily; they're going to get a kid that everyone knows who they're getting every single day that I walk in the building".
"I've coached plenty of different personalities", Cardinals offensive coordinator Mike McCoy said.
Cardinals fans, Rosen just showed you how much he cares about the game. I didn't try to put on a face. "I'm lucky now. I got picked". He put on his red Arizona cap, shook hands with National Football League commissioner Roger Goodell and then proceeded to give his thoughts during his on-stage interview with ESPN, "I'm more motivated than I've ever been in my entire life". Honestly, the second I got that call it all went away.
In front of Rosen, the Browns took Baker Mayfield (No. 1 overall), the Jets selected Sam Darnold (No. 3) and the Bills got Josh Allen (No. 7). "So, there were three big mistakes ahead of me".
"I'm not going to come in and be an A-hole and think that my (crap) don't stink".
"It's behind me. I'm an Arizona Cardinal now and I hope I will be for many, many years". "It's relationship-based, and you got to know guys individually so there's not sort of one swooping strategy to be a leader", Rosen said Friday during his introductory press conference. "I understand the situation".
He'd better be if he's going to back up all that big talk.
After finally hearing his name called, Rosen stepped onto the stage at AT&T Stadium where the 2018 NFL Draft was being held.
"Definitely, there are a lot of expectations", Rodgers said back in 2005 after he fell. Brett Favre aside, the Packers were the right team at the right time for Rodgers, even if they didn't produce the top-five payday Rodgers had been anticipating. - Rodgers comments are a lot more calm and measured than Rosen.
