Former UCLA coach Jim Mora said on the NFL Network that Sam Darnold would be a better fit in Cleveland than Josh Rosen because of the city’s “blue-collar, gritty attitude.”
Here is the full quote: “Because of fit, I would take Sam Darnold if I were the Cleveland Browns,” Mora said. “I think [he has] that blue-collar, gritty attitude. I think his teammates will love him. I think the city will love him. He’ll say the right things. He’ll come in and represent well. I think he kind of represents what Cleveland is.”
Mora also said the New York teams should take Josh Rosen. I like Mora’s honesty. If the tables were turned and Darnold was at UCLA, would Clay Helton ever say the Browns should take Darnold? No way.
Jim Mora: “I’d take Sam Darnold if I was the @Browns.”
