NFL network analysts have USC qb Sam Darnold as the number one pick in 5 of 6 mock drafts. In a surprising move, Darnold has elected not to throw at the NFL combine (March 2-5) in Indy. Instead, he is choosing to focus on athletic testing and interviews, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported Tuesday, per a source who informed of his plans.
Rappaport reports that Darnold is healthy and will throw at USC’s pro day on March 21st.
With all of the other top quarterbacks out on the field for the combine, one has to wonder if this is a smart move. We’ll see come April at the draft!
