Patriots pondered trading up to draft Baker Mayfield

Baker Mayfield, now a Cleveland Brown, had to answer for planting Oklahoma flag at Ohio Stadium

In fact, the Browns never considered taking Allen with the top selection. And the New York Jets admitted after the draft that Mayfield would have been their choice at No. 3 and was the reason why they traded up early in the draft process. While OU was on its way to a blowout win over Kansas, Mayfield stunned coaches when he made a crude gesture on the sidelines.

"I was at an airport", Highsmith said Monday at the Pro Football Hall of Fame Luncheon Club, via the Canton Repository.

While taking the world of college football by storm, Mayfield became the sixth OU football player to become a Heisman Trophy victor this past season. I did all my evaluations of the season. They may want you, but you may not be there'. You watch their workouts.

Once again, Baker Mayfield is backing away from any comparisons to Johnny Manziel. Highly, highly intelligent. Highly competitive. And he had a trait that some of the good ones have. That includes the power to affect other people. All you need to know is that Chubb and Von Miller will be playing on the same defense.

None of this is certain - if the Browns are taking Mayfield with their No. 1 overall pick, they have yet to notify the Heisman Trophy victor from Oklahoma or his representatives. However, the big question mark looming over Darnold is the worry that he has become prone to turning the ball over. "They have all the tools and the pieces, let's just make it happen now", Mayfield said. Often regarded as the purest passing prospect of the bunch, Rosen is arguably the most NFL-ready quarterback coming out of college. With that being said I think the 49ers did really well in the rest of the draft. This time he spoke up about why the team elected to go in a different direction than UCLA's Josh Rosen.


"You heard so much about Rosen. We didn't know if that was a reality or not".

Thursday night in Arlington, Texas, many National Football League teams began a draft they were hoping would reshape their franchise. She's one of the players. I care about doing things the right way. "He is fine. I have no problems with him".

Mayfield will start third on the Browns' depth chart, behind former Buffalo QB Tyrod Taylor and veteran Drew Stanton, but it wouldn't be a surprise if he was given an opportunity to compete for the starting job. I'm very excited to see how he turns out at the next level.

Added Ward: "Like he said, we got him the year before". We thought, boy, that's going to be a heck of a move to get up that high from where they are. Mayfield is far from the safest pick at the top of the draft, but there's a chance he can galvanize an organization and its fans. He simply saw Rosen's girlfriend and decided that he was bothered?
