Sam Darnold visits Cleveland Browns
Darnold is the second top-flight QB this week to visit the team’s facility in Berea, Ohio. Baker Mayfield, Oklahoma‘s dynamic Heisman Trophy winner, met with Cleveland’s coaches, general manager John Dorsey and front-office executives on Tuesday.
Darnold is believed to be the favorite to land with Browns, who are coming off a 0-16 season and have spent the most of the past two decades searching for a franchise quarterback.
The 20-year-old Darnold seems to check all the Browns’ boxes: He’s big (6-foot-3, 221 pounds), played against strong competition and is accurate (65 percent). The major knock on Darnold, who started two seasons for the Trojans, is turnovers. He had 22 last season.
