Darnold certainly hasn't lived up to the hype he received coming into the NFL back in 2018, but we've come to give anyone who played under Adam Gase a free pass. Here in Carolina, Darnold has everything he needs to be successful and it now all comes down to whether or not he can take the necessary steps to be a capable NFL QB. It's important to stay measured with projections for Darnold - and subsequently the rest of the offense - but Darnold's one of the most intriguing QB2s you can add to your Superflex roster. He's worth taking a shot on late in your drafts to see if he can reach that potential we all thought was possible previously.
