Todd McShay: Sam Darnold Could "Benefit" From Another Year At USC


Even with Darnold's Trojans trailing Ohio State 24-7 in Friday's Cotton Bowl Classic, Browns fans have themselves keyed on every one of the sophomore signal-caller's throws, curious if he could be the answer to Cleveland's almost 30-year quarterback conundrum.

Sam Darnold is seen by many as a legitimate contender, if not the front-runner, to become the top overall selection in the 2018 NFL Draft.

Maybe that was going to be Darnold's answer regardless of whether or not USC won the bowl game or how well he played, but there is nearly certainly no doubt that turning the ball over three times in the biggest game of the season was heavily weighing on his afterward.

"Right now, I think I'm really just focused on just hanging out with my teammates for the next couple of days and really just saying bye to the seniors, because they've put together such a great season", Darnold said.

Beyond that, McShay clearly sees what Darnold would be turning down but, in the same breath, indicates "he could benefit" from the additional college seasoning.

Even after a disappointing outing against Ohio State, Darnold would likely be a top-5 pick, with several National Football League teams searching for a quality starting QB.

Darnold went 26-45 for 356 passing yards with no touchdown passes and one interception in a 24-7 loss.

Darnold just might, as there have been rumors all year that he is more likely to return to school than not. He has a tough decision to make.
