USC QB Sam Darnold announced on Wednesday that he is entering the 2018 NFL Draft.
The top two quarterback prospects for this year’s draft, Darnold and UCLA QB Josh Rosen, have now declared for the draft.
Darnold told reporters last week that he would be “honored to play for any [NFL] team” when asked about the possibility of playing for the Browns, who own the No. 1 overall pick.
“Whenever I come out to go to the NFL, I think I’d be honored to play for any team,” Darnold said, via ESPN.com. “It’s been a dream of mine for such a long time to play in the NFL. Any team that would want to give me that opportunity to be a part of their organization, it would mean the world to me.”
Rosen went on record saying that he would be “hesitant” to play for Cleveland, which could point to Darnold becoming the top pick in the 2018 draft.
Darnold, 20, is currently a sophomore at USC. He led the Trojans to a Rose Bowl victory over Penn State last season and was Pac-12 Offensive Freshman of the Year.
During his college career at USC, Darnold has thrown for 6,873 yards while completing 65.3 percent of his passes to go along with 57 touchdowns and 21 interceptions over the course of 26 games.
