Sam Darnold is in Cleveland working out with the Browns on Wednesday. The Browns own the No. 1 overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft. ESPN’s Mel Kiper believes Cleveland will pass on the USC quarterback with the top pick.
Kiper released his fourth mock draft on Wednesday. The ESPN draft analyst thinks the Browns will take Wyoming quarterback Josh Allen with the No. 1 pick. Kiper has Darnold going No. 2 to the New York Giants.
Kiper’s mock draft is interesting. He’s one of the most respected draft analysts around. But few draft analysts have the Giants selecting Darnold with the No. 2 pick. Most draft analysts do have Allen, Darnold and UCLA quarterback Josh Rosen all being selected in the top 10. In Kiper’s mock, he determines that the first three picks will all be quarterbacks.
