Are the New York Giants focusing in on USC QB Sam Darnold?

USC QB Sam Darnold has made no decision when it comes to whether or not he wants to enter the 2018 NFL Draft. However, that has not prevented NFL teams from showing early interest in him.

According to an article by  Jordan Raanan of ESPN, the New York Giants, currently 2-6, have begun scouting QBs to replace Eli Manning and Darnold is at the top of their list.

Here is what Jordan Raanan of ESPN had to say about the Giants interest in drafting a young QB:

Darnold may be the most intriguing option, but whispers in league circles are that he may remain at USC for another year. Rosen (personality) and Allen (level of competition) also come with questions. Jackson and Mayfield are nontraditional quarterbacks.

Still, the Giants (1-7) are doing their due diligence. This close inspection of the draft’s top quarterbacks is necessary because they have a soon-to-be 37-year-old quarterback and are in the midst of their worst season in decades. They would have the third overall pick if the season ended today and are coming off a 34-point home loss to the Los Angeles Rams.

According to Albert Breer of The MMQB, Darnold would like to wait and see who has the top couple of picks in the 2018 NFL Draft before deciding his future at USC. The Giants would currently have the No. 3 pick in the 2018 NFL Draft if the season ended today.

USC (8-2, 6-1) has had its ups and downs this season and so has Darnold. Through 10 games the redshirt sophomore has thrown 2,869 yards, 22 TDs and 11 INTs, while completing 63.6 percent of his passes.
