The Buffalo Bills will undoubtedly be looking for a quarterback in the 2018 NFL Draft in a couple weeks. If the team can slide their way up into the top few picks, UCLA QB Josh Rosen could be the next Bills signal-caller.

The 21-year-old Rosen is considered the most pro-ready and polished quarterback in the 2018 class. Here’s some more about the former UCLA Bruin’s personal life.

Rosen, like the other two quarterbacks we’ve featured so far, is from California. He comes from an athletic family. Rosen’s father almost qualified for the Olympics as an ice skater in 1970’s before becoming a spine surgeon. His mother was the captain of her college lacrosse team at Princeton before becoming a journalist.

Rosen’s first sport was tennis. He was ranked a top-10 junior tennis player in the country before suffering an injury, allowing him to focus on football full-time.

Rosen played QB at national powerhouse St. John Bosco high school in California. He became Los Angeles Times player of the year, throwing 90 TD’s while still maintaining a 4.3 GPA. Rosen was a five-star recruit and regarded as the best QB and overall recruit in his class.

Rosen went on to become a three-year starter at UCLA, leading him to where he is now.
