Last year, the Arizona Cardinals selected Josh Rosen with the No. 10 overall pick in the NFL Draft. While management claims he's the quarterback of the franchise for now, it's possible that he is dealt in the offseason.

The biggest factor in this upcoming draft is whether or not the Cardinals actually want to select Kyler Murray. With the recent measurements actually making him an even more appealing prospect, Kliff Kingsbury might vouch for the dual-threat quarterback.

In the event that Murray finds himself in Arizona, it means Rosen would be on the trade block. With several teams searching for a quarterback this offseason, the UCLA product could instantly find another home.

Rosen wasn't exactly impressive in his rookie campaign, as he finished with 2,278 passing yards, 11 touchdowns and 14 interceptions.

He might not have the best trade value, but teams would line up for the chance at adding a 22-year-old gunslinger that has so much room to grow.

Here are the top trade destinations for Rosen:

1) New England Patriots

The idea of the Patriots transitioning smoothly from Tom Brady to Josh Rosen might send chills down the rest of the AFC East's spine. Nonetheless, Bill Belichick would have an ideal successor to replace the best quarterback of this generation.

With Sony Michel ready to lead the backfield in New England for years to come, it makes sense to find the next option under center for the foreseeable future.

2) New York Giants

If the Giants aren't sold on Dwayne Haskins and this upcoming quarterback class, then perhaps they'll make an intriguing offer for Josh Rosen. Time is running out for Eli Manning, as the future Hall of Fame quarterback has completely lost his arm strength.

New York has elite talent on offense in Odell Beckham Jr. and Saquon Barkley, but the lack of a true threat at the most important position is hurting the team's ability to find any success. Well, that all changes if the Giants land Rosen in the offseason.

3) Jacksonville Jaguars

The Jaguars have been linked to Nick Foles this offseason, yet acquiring Rosen would actually be the safer move. It would cost less money and provide the franchise with a younger option at quarterback.

Jacksonville doesn't have many weapons on offense, and signing a journeyman quarterback simply isn't the answer. Arizona hasn't revealed if it'll ship Rosen out of town, but that shouldn't stop Tom Coughlin and management from initiating trade talks.
