His goal is to be the next Tom Brady, and having Chad O'Shea as his OC and Coach Flores' defensive scheme can make him a competitive QB ... if his mind can learn. He has a QB mind, so, I think Rosen is going to be a good one for us down the road. I'm pretty psyched.

“He’s smart,” Flores said this week. “He’s got a big arm. He’s talented. He’s got some leadership ability. But he’s got a lot to learn. There’s no doubt about that. This offense, it’s not an easy one to learn. There’s something new every day. He’s improving, he’s getting better every day. I like that.”https://www.palmbeachpost.com/sports/20 ... ning-curve
Rosen’s accuracy and arm talent has impressed Dolphins receivers.
“Really everything,” Kenny Stills said. “I don’t know what the right word is for it, but it doesn’t look like it’s coming fast and then it gets in front of your face and you see that it’s spinning well and it has some velocity behind it. He’s a great player and he has a bright future.”
Rosen will have three mandatory mini-camp practices next week. Then he has about six weeks to study the play book on his own before training camp.
By that time, Rosen should be feeling more at home.
“I don’t know overall but I think much better than when I got here and better than yesterday,” Rosen said, when asked about comfort. “This is kind of the track. I couldn’t really give you a frame of reference but pretty good. Getting there.”
Another advantage that should pay off for Rosen this season is facing Flores’ complex defensive scheme, which uses combinations of three to five defensive linemen as well as three to six defensive backs, in practice.
“I think it’s a lot nicer to see it now as opposed to December and experience it for the first time,” Rosen said.
Rosen has been very focused on improving his recognition of defense, in calling out the opposing middle linebacker and calling out the proper offensive line protections.
