To draft Sam Darnold? Or to not draft Sam Darnold? That is the question.
It’s a big question that will have the Denver Broncos pacing in their war room leading up to the 2018 NFL Draft.
Make no mistake, the 6-foot-4, 20-year-old redshirt sophomore is a highly coveted arm coming out of college, a natural thrower. Darnold is a prototypical quarterback who is expected to be taken within the first two picks in the draft. It’s likely the Broncos, who currently hold the No. 5 pick, would have to move up in the draft to select the USC Trojan.
Darnold is a tantalizing prospect who could turn around the Broncos’ fortunes, but he would also come at a steep trade price. Ronnie K in this edition of the Broncos Blitz podcast weighs the pros and cons of pursuing Darnold.
