Josh Rosen isn't shy on confidence with two days remaining until the start of the 2018 NFL draft.

Appearing on B/R's Simms & Lefkoe Podcast on Tuesday, the former UCLA quarterback said he has his sights set on having the longest career of any player in this year's class, regardless of which team selects him.

"I don't really care where I go, as long as they sincerely believe that I'm the best fit for them," he said. "Because I promise you I'm going to put absolutely every ounce of effort I have into this game to be the most successful, and I am very confident I'm going to be the last man standing in this draft class when all is said and done.

"I hope the team does their homework, and I hope the team picks me because they think I'm going to be the best fit for that organization."

The conversation in its entirety can be heard below beginning at the 14:45 mark:

Bleacher Report's Matt Miller has compared Rosen to former No. 1 overall pick and Los Angeles Rams signal-caller Jared Goff. He ranked Rosen as the No. 3 quarterback overall on his big board behind No. 1 Sam Darnold and No. 2 Josh Allen.

Outlasting those two, in addition to 2017 Heisman Trophy winner Baker Mayfield, won't be easy.

But given Rosen's polish and poise in the pocket, it's safe to say he has a chance to make good on his goal if he lands with a team that works to maximize his star-caliber skill set.
