Broncos visit with QB Sam Darnold in Los Angeles

Posted Apr 6, 2018

Denver continued to evaluate this year's top quarterback prospects.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — The Broncos continued to evaluate this year’s crop of quarterback prospects with a stop in Los Angeles.

A Broncos contingent, led by President of Football Operations/General Manager John Elway and Head Coach Vance Joseph, held a private workout with former USC quarterback Sam Darnold on Friday.

Darnold, the youngest of the top quarterback prospects, played two seasons at USC. As a redshirt sophomore, he completed 63.1 percent of his passes for 4,143 yards and 26 touchdowns as he led the Trojans to a Cotton Bowl berth.

His finest game as a collegiate athlete, though, likely came against Penn State in the 2017 Rose Bowl when he threw for 453 yards, five touchdowns and one interception in a comeback win.

Denver previously welcomed prospect Josh Rosen to UCHealth Training Center on Wednesday.
