NFL Draft rumors: Mike Mayock loves Sam Darnold

22 April, 2018, 05:50 | Author: Hannah Francis

Drafting a passer, whether it's Mayfield or another, now affords the Jets the opportunity to mold a franchise quarterback instead of rushing him under center while plastering large and unrealistic expectations on him and a rebuilding team. I would want to sit right where I'm sitting if I'm the Giants, because I'm going to get a player that I think is going to be able to play two contracts worth with me.

Mayock has been saying the two easiest quarterback evaluations he has ever done have been for Andrew Luck and Carson Wentz.

It's certainly an interesting perspective from Mayock on one of the names that's been linked to the Lions in the pre-draft process. The Browns have the first overall pick but they also pick fourth. No, they are not a quarterback away from threatening to make the playoffs. This is non-negotiable, no matter how much you love Saquon Barkley. "We'll actually do some actual mocks; I'll assign some guys, "Hey, you're the Browns, you're the Giants, you're the Jets and down the line". "But you've swung and missed so many times in Cleveland at quarterback, can you afford another one with the first pick?" With that, here is how we believe the draft could shake out including one potential trade that could dictate the rest of the draft.

Cleveland grabbed Tyrod Taylor in the offseason and plans for him to start 2018. It could also trade back, stockpiling mid-round draft picks, which is traditionally a very Bill Belichick thing to do.




Jones is likely a day three pick in the draft, which is when rounds four through seven are held. Nearly a year later, quarterbacks continue to be the story with the draft just days away.

"We don't know what the other teams are going to do".

And, regardless of which team picks Darnold - the Browns, Giants or Jets are his most likely landing spots - he'll immediately be faced with this sobering question: Can he finally be the one USC quarterback who becomes a star in the National Football League after an uncanny succession of predecessors who failed to do so?

Last year, Cleveland selected DeShone Kizer out of Notre Dame in the second round. They should find another Pro Bowl talent with another first-round pick. "But if Evans is gone and Vander Esch is not necessarily on your board medically at that point, I think you are looking at Harold Landry and then, if not, if Landry is gone, there is a whole different conversation going on".
