University of Southern California quarterback Sam Darnold will not throw at this week’s NFL Scouting Combine and will instead focus on athletic testing and interviews, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN. However, Darnold will throw at USC’s pro day, which is currently scheduled for March 21. Darnold is regarded by many to be the top quarterback in this year’s NFL Draft class. The 20-year-old played three seasons at USC, concluding his collegiate career by throwing for 4,143 yards, 26 touchdowns and 13 interceptions while completing 63.1 percent of his passing attempting and registering a passer rating of 148.1 during his junior campaign. His poor performance during the Trojans’ loss to Ohio State in the Cotton Bowl, however, raised eyebrows around the country, as he completed just 26 of his 45 passing attempts and committed three turnovers en route to one interception and two fumbles.
