Prospect Summary:

Over the past two seasons, Washington fielded a point-machine offense led by left-handed quarterback Michael Penix Jr. Starting at right tackle in 2022 and 2023, Rosengarten was a steady blind-side protector for Penix, keeping him healthy and functioning well in the Huskies’ blocking scheme.

Rosengarten is a solid athlete who has decent feet and agility on the edge. He is quick out of his stance and is able to play the typewriter with his feet. Though intelligence, technique, and athleticism made Rosengarten a skilled edge protector in college, he lack strengths in his anchor and can get pushed backward. Rosengarten also could have problems with speed-to-power rushes from pro defenders.

In pass blocking and in the ground game, Rosengarten need more strength and has to add muscle for the NFL. He does not generate movement in the run game, lacks heavy hands, doesn’t pack a punch, and gets pushed back by bull rushes. Rosengarten needs a year of development as a backup while growing stronger in a pro training program before he will be ready to take on NFL defensive linemen. If Rosengarten is unable to add strength and also starts as a rookie, he is going to get pushed around frequently on Sundays.

Due to his lack of strength, Rosengarten looks likely to be a second-day pick, at best, in the 2024 NFL Draft. He could sneak into the second round for a zone-based team, but he is not a good fit for a team that runs a lot of power-man blocking.

Prospect Comparison:

Brian O’Neill. Rosengarten reminds me of O’Neill coming out of Pittsbrugh. They both had some athleticism and quickness, but lacked play strength. O’Neill was a second-day pick, and Rosengarten could go on Day 2 in the 2024 NFL Draft.
