    = Brock Osweller if he goes pro he'll be a backup by year 3 maybe cut by year 5 and then be some type of assistant on usc sideline , he has some potential but really needs 2 more years to develop to have any hope of having a long NFL carrer

    Well, he had 356 yards. He was their only option.
    I think he is overrated all along but cannot hang tonight's game on him, he was harassed all night. He looked like Sonny Corleone at the toll booth.
    IMO he will be a starting NFL QB, maybe a good one, but is not a cinch franchise QB like some have touted him to be... lots of potential and he probably will improve.
    Tonight most QBs would have struggled in that spot.

    Not sure what you were watching? Darnold never gave his team a chance by the countless back breaking mistakes. 2 fumbles inside OSU territory and a pick 6! Protect the damn ball Darnold.

    Guys like Darnold stick around in the NFL for a cup of coffee and they're CUT. The turnovers for Darnold are ridiculous.

    Plenty of experts are saying he should go back to school for 1 more season.

    We'll see what he does

    Realize this a decent kid ...but he has no future in the NFL .... in the pocket with any kind of pressure , he's horrible .... Guess that does not say much for the 0-4 in Bowls Pac 10 teams ????

    If he sat out that bowl game would he of gone high in the 1st round? Probably cost himself millions with that effort.

    Lol.

    U guys are tough critics. U realize how banged up his OL was in that game? I was on OSU, and am certainly not a USC fan in any capacity, but my God...have some perspective.

    The best QB who ever lived would struggle when heís put under heavy pressure 48% of his dropbacks (stay I heard at the end of the game plus my eyes lol). Not saying Darnold is good or bad or he should stay or go, but to judge him on last nightís game is a pretty unfair assessment.

    Agreed Darnold hugely overrated, will be an NFL bust.
    Leinert, Booty, Barkley that school has produced plenty of NFL busts after Carson Palmer.
    Look for same song, different verse here.......

    Thatís true, but itís pretty clear that a thread started 5 minutes after he got pummeled by OSU is focusing on that game. No one until you has said anything remotely close to, ďwell, last nightís game just confirmed what weíve known all year...Ē

    yeah but Rosen was just about the worst...

    Flushed from the pocket in 2017 Completion rate Yards per attempt Passer rating
    Josh Rosen 40% 3.3 53.2
    Rest of NCAA QBs 49% 6.0 73.8

    Mayfield's stats under pressure were ridiculously good. something like 117 QB rating...if you go by a purely stats-based analysis of the top QBs it was Mayfield in a class by himself and Allen as an almost sure bust. Mayfield is the 4th highest QB projection in last 20 years so it all depends on his attitude

    https://www.footballoutsiders.com/st...018/qbase-2018

    obviously Mayfield is in very good company:

    Here are the top 10 prospects since 1997 based on the current formula:
    Top QBASE Projections, 1997-2017
    Player QBASE
    Philip Rivers 1964
    Carson Palmer 1916
    Donovan McNabb 1799
    Baker Mayfield 1480
    Russell Wilson 1288
    Peyton Manning 1279
    Marcus Mariota 1277
    Byron Leftwich 1216
    Aaron Rodgers 1216
    Ben Roethlisberger 1211
    None of this is a guarantee that Mayfield is going to be a star in the NFL especially since the worst franchise in professional sports drafted him

    The kid is 20 years old.

    He should have stayed in college.

    youngest 1st round QB since the AFL/NFL merger but, in his defense, that's some pretty sweet moolah for a kid that can't drink legally:

    Total Contract Value: $30,370,490
    Annual Contract Value: $7,592,623
    Position Ranking: 6/63 at QB

    Sam Darnold is a horrible match for the Jets, Never have I seen a NFL team with more criminals on it then the Jets this year are they recruiting from the Washington State correctional system

    Disagree.....Jets love to teach their QBs to throw it to the other team. Darnold excels at that. Seems like a match made in heaven.
