Smart Rookies

AFTER THE Cardinals selected Josh Rosen with the No. 10 pick in the 2018 NFL draft, the former UCLA quarterback lamented the "three mistakes" taken ahead of him—Baker Mayfield, Sam Darnold and Josh Allen, picked by the Browns, Jets and Bills, respectively. But Rosen recently joined those three "mistakes" and Lamar Jackson, drafted by the Ravens with the No. 32 pick, in a roundtable discussion of rookie gunslingers, facilitated by The MMQB's Robert Klemko and filmed by SI.

The wide-ranging interview, available to watch on SI TV starting June 20, features the five first-round quarterbacks sitting down together for the first time since April's NFL draft. They discuss their journeys to professional football—including what the draft process is really like—and their expectations for life in the NFL. The rookies, two of whom won the Heisman Trophy, offer their expert advice for aspiring signal-callers and reveal the NFL players they most look up to. With training camp less than two months away, trust us: You don't want to miss this. As a certain quarterback might say, that would be a mistake.
