If Mayfield was deserving of the first overall pick in the National Football League draft, perhaps he also deserves to be selected as the first quarterback off the board in your dynasty fantasy rookie drafts. "If you know your job and you can do it and you can execute it, it is about winning". The reigning Heisman Trophy victor didn't start the draft process as the number one signal caller on the their board, but there was no doubt in the building by the end of it.
"I have always wondered, when it comes to being a great football player, whose standards are we judging them by?"
"I am not going to back off of this and we can keep writing this narrative, Tyrod Taylor is the starting quarterback of this football team".
In Cleveland Browns rumors, the organization is trying to deal cornerback Jamar Taylor, who has been with the team two seasons. Mayfield owns three of our seven highest-graded quarterback seasons since we started grading college prospects in 2014.
"I'm going to come in with the mindset to compete but also the hunger learn (behind Taylor)", Mayfield said.

He told Sky Sports' Neil Reynolds on Draft Review: "They decided five weeks ago that barring a major upset or someone trading up with a huge offer, they were taking Baker Mayfield". I think if the Browns are as invested in him as we were at Oklahoma, he's going to return the favor by working his tail off.
I don't disagree with betting on Mayfield, but if you're the Browns, you can pick Saquon Barkley at No. 1 and realistically expect Mayfield to still be there at 4, but you don't do that?
"But he's very brash and we've seen some of the things that can rub people the wrong way".
Mayfield just happened to be that choice for the Browns that will continue to push this conversation around him throughout the offseason because it is an imminent situation that will arise at some point. "I'm excited to be here".
Mayfield looked more comfortable when plays started with him in the shotgun, which is no surprise since he was in the shotgun at Oklahoma. "Why he lasted that long (in the draft) is beyond me".
