Sam Darnold was drafted second overall by the New York Jets.
Darnold was the top overall QB in the RotoViz Scouting Index. He’ll go to a Jets team that signed two quarterbacks during the offseason, bringing back Josh McCown and adding Teddy Bridgewater. Darnold will have a chance to start immediately if the Jets decide he’s ready, or sit behind McCown to start the season as he acclimates to the NFL. With just $500,000 guaranteed on his contract, Bridgewater becomes a potential cut candidate.
