Sam Darnold: Product of his environment or NFL Draft bust?

The Carolina Panthers have their new quarterback in Sam Darnold, who now gets to prove his worth away from the New York Jets.

It didn’t come as much of a surprise to see the Carolina Panthers bring in another veteran quarterback before the 2021 NFL Draft. Failed bids for Matthew Stafford and Deshaun Watson were well documented and their search finally ended with a move to acquire Sam Darnold from the New York Jets.

This represents a risk whichever way one looks at it.
