Browns Have Baker Mayfield Doing Extra Work Under Center

Mayfield is selected as the No 1 overall pick of the 2018 NFL Draft at the AT&T Stadium on April 26 Mayfield is selected as the No 1 overall pick of the 2018 NFL Draft at the AT&T Stadium on April 26

"I've got to continue my strengths, and leadership is one of them", he said.

The plan for now is for Taylor to start and Mayfield to learn while watching a quarterback who led the Buffalo Bills to their first playoff appearance in 18 years last season.

The 2018 NFL Draft was critical for the Cleveland Browns after a season in which they didn't win a single game, compiling a record of 0-16.

According to ESPNs Dan Graziano, Mayfield had some issues with the QB-C exchange this weekend. The more he delved into Mayfield though, the more he liked him and it became apparent that the Oklahoma standout had that one fabled intangible quality that all the great ones have; the "it' factor".

"They visited Mayfield on March 22, they had already written their reports before that visit and that just reinforced to them the personality that Mayfield has - a very self-assured guy, a swagger to him - and that they wanted to take him. It doesn't matter what has happened in the past; it's about what you're going to do for it now, how are you working towards making this team better and so it starts in the locker room", Mayfield said. It was a good first day, but he's got a ways to go.


Baker Mayfield wasn't always a hotshot quarterback.

"I was a little surprised", said one NFC personnel man whose team didn't select a quarterback in this year's draft. At the combine, within my group, he was my guy and was just around him a bunch. I'm going to work here for the Browns. "It is about being a good football player". There's a reason why Russell Wilson and Drew Brees are the only quarterbacks in the league who are starting at 6-0 or less.

The only other quarterback in rookie minicamp is Joel Stave, a well-traveled practice squad player. When you get used to somebody new, we've got to make sure we're not having to worry about that. If Taylor struggles and the Browns get off to yet another disgusting start, the calls for Mayfield will become overbearing.

"The one thing I really love is when you talk to the Oklahoma staff. The guy you're comparing him to [Taylor] has played a lot of games, and won games in the National Football League".
