USC QB Sam Darnold shows off timing with pass off boat

Viewed as a surefire top-end prospect should he declare for the 2018 NFL Draft, Sam Darnold showed off some of his accuracy in a difficult setting recently.

The USC quarterback located a surfing target and connected with him from a boat. Although the pass wasn’t a long-range missile, said boat being in motion increased the difficulty of this toss.

Heads up Trojan nation. I think we may have found our next great receiver @seanmorrissey ????????

While it would be unusual for fans of teams like the 49ers, Jets or Browns to get excited about player based on a boat throw, the respective quarterback situations of those teams may make such enthusiasm unavoidable.
