Colin Cowherd: Matt Kalil and Sam Darnold

I feel good about the trade and think getting an OT in the 1st 2 rounds will go a long way to him playing better with all those weapons.

Barring a surprise dropping QB, that's the best way to go. No doubt about it.

Kalil's point about them raving about Wilson making throws across his body and that he has seen Darnold make the same plays makes me believe he can be as good as Wilson with the right coach.

I don't think we are targeting a QB anymore and hoping one of the good OTs are available at 8.  We might trade back and still get one of the top 5 OTs in the draft.  Plus gain an extra pick.

Please don’t use that turnstile in the same sentence as Sam Darnold ever again. 

don’t you put that evil on us 

It wasn't Matt. It was Ryan.

Cowherd got the name wrong.

When you watch his highlights, Darnold makes some special plays.

The problem is that the plays he makes between the highlights are often real problematic.  Hopefully good coaching can help clean that up. We saw how Gase took Tannehill, who appeared to make good and safe decisions with the ball (~2% of his throws as INTs, which is find for a young player), to a terrible decision maker (>3% as INTs over his 2 years with gase).  Can Darnold recover how Tannehill did?  Time will tell...

He's on the roster now so hopefully he works out. If he doesn't work out I just hope that he bombs HARD. We don't need 5 or 6 wins again. Go big or go home. Be the answer or be our Clausen 2.0. Anything in between would just plain suck.

Its a very unique situation so we might have a better shot at unscrewing him.
