The New York Jets selected Sam Darnold third overall in 2018 but fans of the team already are eyeing the possibility of selecting Trevor Lawrence if they end up with the No. 1 pick in the 2021 draft.
“Yeah, you know, I mean, I have social media,” Darnold said Thursday when asked about Lawrence. “I’ve seen some of the things, but … Yeah, we’ve got a game to win this week and that’s all we’re worried about.”
Darnold has struggled in his third season. He ranks 29th out of 30 qualifying quarterbacks in Total QBR (46.3).
“For me, it’s out of my control,” he said. “I’m here to do my best and help this team win games.”
