As a UCLA freshman, Josh Rosen wasn't eligible for the 2016 NFL Draft.

But had he been, Bruins coach Jim Mora believes his quarterback would have been chosen No. 1 overall.

"In my opinion he (would have been) the best quarterback in the draft and he would've gone first," Mora told The Rich Eisen Show on Friday.

Rosen was outstanding last season as a freshman, passing for 3,670 yards and 23 touchdowns with 11 interceptions. He arrived at UCLA as a highly touted recruit, and won the starting job as the immediate successor to Brett Hundley. NFL Media analyst Chad Reuter ranked Rosen as the No. 9 player in the college game earlier this month.
