USC Star QB Sam Darnold Says He ‘Would Be Honored To Be Drafted By Any Team’ When Asked About The Browns
Last week, UCLA star QB Josh Rosen made it clear that he did notwant to get drafted first overall by the Cleveland Browns according to a report from ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
UCLA quarterback Josh Rosen would prefer to play for the Giants over the Browns and would be hesitant to come out in next year’s NFL draft if he knew that Cleveland was going to take him with the No. 1 overall pick, according to league sources familiar with the situation.
Privately, Rosen has expressed concern about winding up in Cleveland and would rather be with a more stable franchise, such as the Giants.
Rosen plans to sit down with his parents after the Cactus Bowl for a “serious conversation” before making a final decision about whether to turn pro. Whether Cleveland has the No. 1 overall pick could influence his decision, according to a source.
While Rosen seems to be dead set on not getting picked up by the Browns, USC QB Sam Darnold has a much different attitude when it comes to which team picks him in the draft. Yesterday, Darnold was asked about how he felt if the Browns would draft him in the upcoming NFL draft and this was his answer.
Whenever I come out to go to the NFL, I think I’d be honored to play for any team,” Darnold said Wednesday, two days before USC faces Ohio State in the Goodyear Cotton Bowl Classic. “It’s been a dream of mine for such a long time to play in the NFL. Any team that would want to give me that opportunity to be a part of their organization, it would mean the world to me.”
It seems like the Browns have their man.
