It’s NFL Draft day and there is an indication the Cleveland Browns are going to pass on Sam Darnold with the No. 1 pick and take Josh Allen or Baker Mayfield. Read the credible reporting on that here.
If I’m Darnold, I would pray the report is true. He would certainly go to the New York Giants or New York Jets in the next two picks.
Hmmm, what’s better? New York or Cleveland? Not being coached by Hue Jackson and getting New York endorsement deals is a no-brainer.
I could go on and on. Though a big negative with the Jets is offensive coordinator Jeremy “Mr. Coffee” Bates.
It’s a win-win for Darnold. If the Browns actually took him, I think the city of Cleveland would love him and his no-ego personality. Jackson will probably be fired after next season so Darnold would have a better coach eventually. And the Browns look like the organization finally has direction.
Darnold will be a success wherever he plays.
Perhaps we should all be focusing more on Ronald Jones and whether his stock really slipped. If he drops below the second round, it’s got to be viewed as a big “yes.”
