UCLA's Josh Rosen could return to school to avoid Browns selection

There is a chance UCLA quarterback Josh Rosen won't declare for the 2018 National Football League draft, if he knew the Browns were going to select him with the #1 pick, according to a report.

Rosen is now in concussion protocol and has not been cleared to play in the bowl game, but he told reporters he hopes to play Tuesday. Current NFL rookies and skipped bowl games last season due to the risk of injury and ended up being taken in the first eight picks of the 2017 NFL draft.

New GM John Dorsey is charged with trying to find a new quarterback and will very likely invest one of Cleveland's two top-five draft picks in a quarterback. Whether or not the Browns have the No. 1 pick will factor into his decision, sources told Schefter.

Don't bank on that happening.

Rosen is still contemplating his decision to enter the upcoming draft, where he would nearly certainly be a first-round selection.

The Browns (0-14) can secure the top overall pick Sunday with a loss to the or a victory by the Giants (2-12) over the. UCLA is set to play Kansas State in the Cactus Bowl on Tuesday. But he did express a desire to suit up with his teammates for the game, but explained that he understood why many players chose to sit out their final college game instead. Contracts are slotted and holdouts are penalized, so if you want to play for a different team, you better be willing to give up a lot of money and/or play out a string that will not end well.

It's nearly certain that the Browns will take a quarterback with their top pick, which will likely be the No. 1.

If this report from Adam Schefter is correct, Josh Rosen is pulling an Eli Manning. Good luck avoiding them.
