Imagine for a moment that you are Sam Darnold.

You’ve worked for nearly two decades honing your craft.  You’ve sacrificed so much just for that shot.  You decide you’re ready for the next level and after your Sophomore year in college you declare for the NFL draft.

What an incredible, emotional whirlwind that must be.

Then you find out the Cleveland Browns, as usual, have the first pick in the draft and boy are they itching to screw up another quarterback!  Such is life, get your money, kid.

The Broncos will catch the Browns treading water with an adequate Darnold or free-falling with Darnold struggling or hurt.  It’s like a macabre dance the NFL does every year.

Someone should look into that.

Prediction:  Broncos (12-2,3-1) 26-4
