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.
Sam Darnold threw roughly 60 passes at his pro day. The first quarter, I would say, came under dry conditions, and the rest came under gradual rain. But he looked really good throughout, on the move and in the pocket, showing touch and velocity. Jordan Palmer, who has been working with Darnold: "You should be able to throw in the rain; it's not that big a deal. But for him to just act like it wasn't raining and no big deal, it's just kind of who he's been — who he is on tape, who he is in the locker room. I thought it was a great showing for him."
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.
Sam Darnold had a pretty revealing answer when asked about the toughest challenge of this pre-draft process. "Learning how to explain the turnovers, because obviously that's a big thing in my game," he said. "Especially last year — that was a problem. So, trying to explain that, trying to explain what I've been working on to get better at that, because obviously turning the ball over is the worst thing you can do as a quarterback."
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.

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."
