UCLA players to watch

QB: Josh Rosen, junior

Josh Rosen is healthy again after his season got derailed from a season ending hit against Arizona State. Most expect him to be a top-3 pick in the 2018 NFL Draft, and with both of his play-making wide receivers back, expect a big season from the Junior.

Josh Rosen is looking to not follow the Johnny Manziel route. Manziel was great during his college years but he turned into a big bust in the NFL. In his game against the Aggies a year ago Josh Rosen completed 26 of his 46 passes last year for 343 yards. Rosen also threw 3 interceptions throughout the game which ended up hurting his team in the end. If he can clean up the interceptions, he is definitely a force to be reckoned with.

WR: Jordan Lasley, junior (RS), WR: Darren Andrews, senior (RS)

The wide receiving group for the Bruins is one of the best in the Pac-12, as proven last season. Both Darren Andrews and Jordan Lasley played key roles as a part of that unit. Darren Andrews lead the team in receiving yards and receptions and was awarded honorable-mention All Pac-12 selection by the coaches. Lasley, on the other hand, led the team with five touchdowns last season.
