The No. 3 overall draft pick was again not on the field Saturday. Darnold is expected to compete with Josh McCown and Teddy Bridgewater for the quarterback job once under contract. He and Chicago linebacker Roquan Smith, the No. 8 choice, remain the only unsigned picks from the entire NFL draft.
Analysis: The dispute seems to hang on contract language. Darnold will receive a four-year, fully guaranteed contract worth $30.247 million, including a $20 million signing bonus - when he signs.

Analysis: GM Mike Maccagnan's move to trade up three spots pays off, as Darnold was considered by many to be the top quarterback in this year's class despite committing 22 turnovers during a slightly disappointing sophomore campaign at USC. Still only 20 years old, he's likely projected to spend most of his rookie year learning behind grizzled vet Josh McCown before taking over as the Jets' QB of the future.
