Obviously tough to say at this point, but I'm leaning Herndon for a couple reasons.
- He supposedly has had good rapport with Darnold
- Not a lot of talent challenging him from running away with the starting spot
- He's played about the same amount of snaps as Ian (217 vs 202), but Ian's role is reduced now with Olsen back, so Herndon will have more opportunity to shine the rest of this season. (Pending Olsen's health)

In any case, it's more likely neither of these two guys amount to anything, but it feels great when we hit on one.

Probably neither. Thomas had his chance with Olsen out and didn't really impress much. Herndon might finally get a chance though after some buzz from last week. It's also too early to tell with rookie TEs, so they might both end up being good TEs and just as easily both end up busting.

Give me Herndon, I like that he can grow with Darnold. Also, greater opportunity to break out than thomas.
