Rain or shine: Darnold delivers at wet pro day

USC quarterback and potential No. 1 overall draft pick Sam Darnold showed he can throw in the rain, as he performed his pro day in soggy conditions.

More Sam Darnold: "I think I'm definitely capable of going No. 1. What the Browns are doing right now is really good; they've got a lot of good pieces. I think going there, and being able to lead the way I lead, and play the way I play, I think will be a good situation.

Lots of recognizable faces at Sam Darnold's rainy pro day from USC, including Matt Leinart, Troy Aikman, Keyshawn Johnson, Anthony Lynn, Mike Vrabel and Todd Bowles. The Browns especially had a large contingent, including Jimmy Haslam, John Dorsey, Hue Jackson and Todd Haley. Darnold, on the Browns' offseason: "They've been doing a lot. Not that they weren't before, but I really think that they're trying to win and trying to win soon. I'm excited about what they're doing."

Based on observing his Pro Day on TV, Sam Darnold did nothing to hurt himself and did plenty to help himself. With Tyrod Taylor in place, I continue to believe he's going to be the No. 1 pick in the draft.

Nice thoughts from former coach Romeo Crennel to Joe Thomas, provided by the Browns: "Being able to live your dream and stay true to your heart is not always easy to do. You did it from start to finish. The importance of your family on draft day to the truth of the standard you have set for yourself as you step aside are shining examples of the person that you are. Wishing you all the best as you enter the next phase of your life."

New Browns quarterback Tyrod Taylor said it will be fun to play the Ravens twice a year because his career began in Baltimore. "I look forward to playing the Ravens as well as the other teams in the division," said Taylor, a backup for the Ravens for four seasons.

How does a draft that includes the Browns top QB first and Saquon Barkley (or Minkah Fitzpatrick or Bradley Chubb) fourth sound? It's setting up that way. The Jets trade up is for a quarterback, and the Bills, Broncos or Cardinals could do the same at two. That would mean the Browns could wind up with a QB at one and the player of their choosing at four.

Pat McManamon ESPN Staff Writer 

The Jets trade to the third spot illustrates why the Browns would be taking a risk by passing on a quarterback with the first pick. If the Bills or Broncos or Cardinals trade up to the second spot to take a quarterback, the Browns would be left with option three if they don't take one first. If the Browns take their guy first overall, they then could wind up a QB and the best remaining player — perhaps even running back Saquon Barkley fourth.
