2018 NFL Draft Rumors: Baker Mayfield ‘Definitely’ in Play for Browns at No. 1

Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield is reportedly among the players the Cleveland Browns are considering selecting with the No. 1 overall pick in the 2018 NFL draft on Thursday.

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, an NFL executive said Mayfield is “definitely” in the conversation for Cleveland at No. 1 overall.youth nfl jerseys

The Browns have long been in search of a franchise quarterback, and all signs point to them finally taking one with the top pick.

Cleveland could wait until pick No. 4 to take its signal-caller, but with the New York Giants and New York Jets each having a quarterback need at No. 2 and No. 3, respectively, the safe play would be to go with a quarterback at No. 1.

Mayfield is part of a quartet of options, as USC’s Sam Darnold, UCLA’s Josh Rosen and Wyoming’s Josh Allen are also in the mix.cheap nfl jerseys nike china

On Monday, ESPN’s Todd McShay wrote that he has heard from multiple general managers that the Browns covet Allen with the top pick.

Allen has impressive physical tools, but his collegiate production was lacking. Mayfield is just the opposite.

Mayfield is probably the least physically impressive prospect of the top four quarterbacks in the class at 6’2″ and 215 pounds, but he is coming off a Heisman Trophy-winning campaign.

As a senior with the Sooners in 2017, Mayfield completed 70.5 percent of his passes for 4,627 yards, 43 touchdowns and six interceptions.

If Cleveland passes on Mayfield at No. 1, there has been a lot of recent buzz regarding the Jets wanting him at No. 3.nike jersey nfl cheap

Last week, Tony Pauline of DraftAnalyst.com reported that a source told him Mayfield to the Jets is a “done deal.”

All four of the top quarterbacks in the draft appear likely to come off the board in the top 12 selections, and it is possible that five signal-callers could be gone by that point depending on how teams value Louisville’s Lamar Jackson.youth nfl jerseys cheap

Bleacher Report’s Matt Miller predicted in his most recent mock draft that the Browns will go with Darnold at No. 1, while Mayfield will fall to the Denver Broncos at No. 5 with a chance to learn behind Case Keenum.

Despite the fact that Cleveland is coming off an 0-16 season, it could be a good landing spot for Mayfield as well since there wouldn’t be pressure to start immediately over veteran Tyrod Taylor.

Jets Reportedly Cancel Top 30 2018 NFL Draft Meetings with All Non-QB Prospects

Everyone has known the New York Jets are taking a quarterback from the second they moved up from No. 6 to No. 3 in Thursday’s first round.

Now they’ve made that abundantly clear to all potential prospects.nfl nike jerseys cheap china

Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reported the Jets have canceled all top-30 meetings with non-quarterback prospects.

Doing this would indicate the Jets have no interest in trading back into the first round after they use the No. 3 pick. They do not have another pick until No. 72 overall, which makes any other potential deal unlikely as is.nike jerseys nfl cheap

The Jets’ pick will be dependent on where the Browns and New York Giants go with the first two picks. Cleveland is largely expected to choose between Sam Darnold and Josh Allen at No. 1. The Giants are in the market for a long-term replacement for Eli Manning, but smart money has been on them taking Penn State running back Saquon Barkley for some time.

That would leave Darnold/Allen, Baker Mayfield and Josh Rosen on the board, with Lamar Jackson hanging around as a potential shocker. Mayfield and Rosen have been linked to New York more so than either leftover from the Darnold/Allen duo.

Regardless, this is something we all knew already. The Jets are taking a quarterback. We’re only two days away from finding out who, so there’s little use in sleuthing through and attempting to make a wild guess.
