Sam Darnold stars on Thursday at Jets training camp

NFL: New York Jets-Minicamp Noah K. Murray-USA TODAY Sports

Reports from Florham Park today suggest the third overall pick in the Draft, Sam Darnold had a very nice day at training camp.

After the saga that was getting Darnold signed and into camp, this is a delightful development.

This is of course only one day of practice. We wouldn’t suggest that Darnold is a bust after a bad practice so we also shouldn’t blow one big day out to be more than it is. So let’s keep this Thursday success in the proper perspective.

With that said, days like this make you smile. It is only a matter of time before Darnold takes over the starting role and keeps it for a decade plus if all goes right. With the starting quarterback position up for grabs, Darnold’s arrival date in the starting job could come sooner rather than later if we see training camp practices like this on a consistent basis.
