Jets podcast: First impressions of Sam Darnold

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

All eyes are on Sam Darnold at Jets training camp this year. Yesterday was my first look at the third overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft, and I wanted to share my initial thoughts on today’s podcast.

As always, I would discourage you from reading too much into the results of one practice. With practice, we don’t even get the benefit of replay to see whether our analysis missed something on a given play. This is not exactly an ideal way to judge players.

With all that in mind, my initial impressions of Darnold were largely positive. I thought he did a number of impressive things both presnap and postsnap during Monday’s practice, and that is what we discuss on today’s show.

Thanks as always for listening to the podcast. You can subscribe to Locked on Jets on iTunes and Spotify to have the show delivered to your device each day.
