USC quarterback Sam Darnold is projected to be a potential #1 pick in the 2018 NFL Draft as one of the hottest prospects that could be available in the draft in 2018.
One team that Darnold has been linked to has been the Cleveland Browns who have been in the basement of the AFC and the NFL for over a decade and still haven’t found a true long-term solution at the position despite the number of high draft picks that they’ve invested in it.
It is assumed that if Darnold were available and if the Browns were indeed the Top pick that they would draft Darnold.
Darnold recently denied a rumor that he might stay at USC for his junior season if the Browns end up with the first pick in the 2018 NFL draft.
“I didn’t say anything about the Browns,” Darnold told reporters after the Trojans’ practice Monday (h/t ESPN). “I’ve never said anything bad about [an NFL] team. They know I would never say anything.”
Darnold has thrown for for 3,462 yards and 24 touchdowns with 12 interceptions this season for the Trojans (10-2).
