Darnold told NFL Network on Wednesday it wasn't the first time since February's combine he had met with Cleveland and New York.
"Just meeting with both of those organizations, like I said before, those people are at the top of the world right now and I'm trying to impress them but at the same time be myself," Darnold explained to NFL Network. "So there's a fine line between that and I was just trying to find that and do my best."
The Browns and Giants weren't the only two teams to send delegations to Southern California. Among the other clubs with high-profile emissaries at the pro day were the Jets (Mike Maccagnan, Todd Bowles, Jeremy Bates), Cardinals (Steve Keim, Steve Wilks, Mike McCoy, Byron Leftwich) and Chargers (Anthony Lynn, Ken Whisenhunt).
