The Jets will build a winner with Darnold thanks to Cleveland’s mistake
The Browns opted to pick Baker Mayfield with the first pick in the 2018 NFL Draft and handed the Jets the gift of Sam Darnold in the process. Colin thinks New York got the best quarterback in the draft in Darnold thanks to Cleveland’s incompetence.
Colin sees the Darnold pick along the lines of Steph Curry being passed over twice by Minnesota, or Portland picking Sam Bowie over MJ. After Tom Brady retires, Darnold will be the best quarterback in the AFC East and everyone will look back at this draft and wonder what the hell Cleveland was thinking.
Arizona won the first day of the draft by landing Josh Rosen
The Cardinals desperately needed a quarterback of the future and ended up hitting a home run at #10 when Rosen fell to them. Not only is Rosen arguably the most NFL ready of the QB’s in this year’s class, he joins an Arizona team with a solid roster. He can also lean on the a solid running game with David Johnson returning from injury.
Colin still thinks Sam Darnold is the best QB in the class, but the Cardinals securing Rosen at 10 was the best pick of the night based on draft position and player selected.
