Patriots considered trading up to draft Baker Mayfield

After months of dissection and debate, the Browns selected Mayfield, Oklahoma's cocky and charismatic quarterback with the No. 1 overall pick in the National Football League draft on Thursday, a somewhat surprising selection by a team that figured to play it safe with such an important decision. The criticism for the number one overall pick comes in the form of a comparison to former Heisman Trophy victor Johnny Manziel. But a lot of questions have been asked with his leadership.

"You guys forget that they came to Norman and whooped up on us", Mayfield said, referring to Ohio State's 45-24 win over the Sooners in 2016. I am a competitive player but what I did is unacceptable so I apologize. Look for the Ravens to bring Jackson in for "wild cat" type packages during his first year, before making him the eventual starter. You heard so much about Rosen: 'He's this or that.' We all know how people talk.

According to Mills, Mayfield was unaware that the Browns would choose him No. 1 overall until moments before the selection.

This is the second straight year the Browns have picked first.

This may have been the thinking for other teams such as the New York Jets, who chose to take USC's Sam Darnold at the third overall pick overall him last Thursday. Some rumors indicated it would be Wyoming's Josh Allen, others UCLA's Josh Rosen or USC's Sam Darnold.


If not, it's imperative that the Bills use their huge draft capital to improve the team outside of the QB.

Suffice it to say that 2017 second-round draft pick DeShone Kizer didn't have to work all too hard to force his way into the starting lineup by the time of the season opener. But with poor offensive line play, Darnold committed a lot of turnovers, questioning his play. He has thrown for 41 touchdown passes as he lead his team to the national championship semifinals. All you need to know is that Chubb and Von Miller will be playing on the same defense. Maybe the decision by the Buffalo Bills to trade up to No. 7 overall and draft him pays off. In his senior year, he only won seven games in a very weak conference. Former Georgia Bulldog, Roquan Smith. Arizona Cardinals grabbed Josh Rosen at No. 10 after trading up with Oakland Raiders. If Darnold is there, Elway will be tempted to take him. There were, for a change, enough quarterbacks to go around.

That's where things could have gotten interesting and the Giants could have traded out of the pick.

One of the biggest and emotional moments of the draft was Shaquem Griffin being drafted at number 141 in the fifth round to the Seattle Seahawks. I think there is no way this will be a playoff team this year. The NFL world left stunned.
