Even if the Browns surprise us all and don't take a quarterback, it shouldn't affect Darnold, who will be a coveted prospect for one of the NY teams. "I would sell the farm for Sam Darnold", said Daniel Jeremiah of NFL Network. Josh Allen led his team to an 8-5 record, again, in the Mountain West. In the meantime, they're playing AJ McCarron at quarterback while waiting for Josh Allen or Josh Rosen or the quarterback they picked to be ready.Maybe that's a longshot.
Baker Mayfield's size, specifically his height, has been a conversation piece most of the quarterback's career. "His upside is so high, I wonder if someone is going to try to get him in the first 10 or 12, 13, 14 picks". General manager Steve Keim believes the team will take a "best player available" route in the draft based on how different the roster can look a week before the draft when compared to the middle of the season.
If not, well, these are the bumbling Browns. At No. 12, they nearly certainly could get one of these seven players: Denzel Ward (best corner); Minkah Fitzpatrick or Derwin James (two best safeties); Roquan Smoth and Tremaine Edmunds (two best linebackers); or Harold Landry and Marcus Davenport (second- and third-best defensive ends).If you think Bradley Chubb changes your franchise, OK, take him.
Dorsey, who as Kanas City's GM got the Chiefs turned around with some solid drafts, has been aggressive in fixing mistakes by previous Cleveland regimes.
Take, for example, the Buffalo Bills.
He knows what he's looking for. Listen, I'm not talking about guys in the second round, either, the third round, or whoever, at any position. Does he have a strong arm?
Lamar Jackson is capable of making any throw and running the ball in from anywhere on the field. We're a group of hard-working people down there and it's something that I hold near and dear to my heart, just where I come from and the type of people that come from there.
Other predictions include the Indianapolis Colts trading back from the No. 6 overall pick, the Philadelphia Eagles trading out of the first round, and the Green Bay Packers trading up for a defensive back. So I just carried that with me, made it through the combine and I'm still pushing to this day to make him happy. "I feel improvement and I feel like whenever my feet are set I'm as accurate as anybody", said Allen. It also includes either defensive end Bradley Chubb or running back Saquon Barkley should NY stand pat at three.
Victor of the 2016 Archie Griffin Award as college football's most valuable player throughout the season, Darnold threw for 4,143 yards and 26 scores while leading the Trojans to both their first-ever Pac-12 conference title and their first Cotton Bowl appearance since 1994.
