With the NFL draft less than 24 hours away, NFL Network’s Mike Mayock released his mock draft.
In the process, he chose USC quarterback prospect Sam Darnold as his No. 1 overall pick to the Cleveland Browns.

I believe Sam Darnold is the future of the Cleveland Browns‘ franchise. I think the beauty of this pick is they signed Tyrod Taylor in the offseason, who I think is an underrated starter. Darnold can develop at his own pace. If he’s ready Week 1, that’s awesome. If he sits for a year, that’s fine too.
NFL.com projects Darnold as a top 3 selection and most mocks have the Browns selecting Darnold.
