Browns host USC QB Sam Darnold on pre-draft visit

USC quarterback Sam Darnold is among the NFL draft prospects hosted Wednesday by the Browns.

Darnold is the second signal-caller to visit the team's Berea facility. Oklahoma quarterback and Heisman Trophy winner Baker Mayfield was in the building Tuesday.

At the league's annual meeting last week in Orlando, Browns head coach Hue Jackson said the team would host the draft's top quarterbacks, a group that includes Mayfield, Darnold, Wyoming's Josh Allen and UCLA's Josh Rosen.

Darnold entered the draft after two seasons with the Trojans, completing 65 percent of his passes for 7,229 yards, 57 touchdowns and 22 interceptions. A large contingent from Cleveland, including Jackson and general manager John Dorsey, attended Darnold's Pro Day in Los Angeles two weeks ago.

NFL teams are permitted to host as many as 30 prospects during the pre-draft process.
