According to NFL insider Matt Lombardo, some NFL coaches and general managers are not very high on Sam Darnold. In fact, Lombardo said an NFL coach told him “He stinks, bro” referring to Sam Darnold.
Asking around on Sam Darnold, and the sense I get from scouts, coaches, and executives is that the perception of him among fans and some in media is significantly higher than of those inside the league.
