The 2017 National Football League regular season is coming to an end with the team heading toward Week 17.
"Whenever I come out to go to the National Football League, I think I'd be honored to play for any team", Darnold told reporters Wednesday, via ESPN.
Darnold, a redshirt sophomore, is widely projected as a first-round pick, although he has not publicly stated whether he will enter the 2018 draft or return to USC. "It's been a dream of mine for such a long time to play in the NFL".
If by some chance the Browns are able to change Rosen's mind, they will be getting a solid player. And unlike Rosen, he said on Tuesday he'd rather "rather be a lower pick at the right team than a higher at the wrong team", Darnold insisted he'd welcome the opportunity to play for whatever team picks him - whenever it is he opts to declare for the draft. In his latest mock draft, ESPN's Todd McShay pegged the Browns to select Darnold, who's thrown for 3,787 yards and 26 touchdowns this season, with the No. 1 pick. Second-round pick DeShone Kizer has been miserable this season, and it is certain he is not the answer moving forward.
Dangerously cold weather in the forecast for south central Montana
The National Weather Service issued a wind chill advisory for much of Minnesota and Wisconsin through Tuesday . Saturday night, look for patchy blowing snow under mostly cloudy skies that will gradually become clear.
A few other teams in the top-tier of the draft may also be targeting a quarterback.
If the Browns do decide to take Rosen, they could always pursue a trade, such as the one seen with Eli Manning and Philip Rivers.
Darnold widely is projected as a first-round pick, although he has not publicly stated whether he will enter the 2018 National Football League draft or return to the Trojans. However, this is the way of life with the NFL Draft being the system in place.
