Sam Darnold was never that great or unique a prospect.


Those who coronated him (and still believe he's great just being held back) have confused faith for facts.


He's not as tall, strong or fast as Josh Allen. He's not as elusive or accurate as Lamar. His mechanics were terrible at usc and they are still awful. He had this big windup release.


There's nothing amazing about him as a prospect.


Except for his marketing, agents etc those people are top notch.


As a football player there's nothing to write home about, and there never really was.

Why is that a true statement? Because you believe it?


Josh Allen would have been a better pick. He would play better than Sam. And they didn't even have to trade up for him.



My opinion and yours are both hypothetical. But all things being equal, draft the better athlete. Sam is not that great an athlete. He's OK.


Except if you put Darnold on the Bills and Josh Allen here, we'd most likely be talking about how great the Bills have done building around Darnold and how good he looks - and we'd be saying how much of a bust Josh Allen looks like. Same with Lamar Jackson. 

Darnold may or may not be ultimately be the guy, but he was put in possibly the worst situation ever for a young QB.
