As the 2018 NFL Draft draws closer, the rumors, speculation and silly season only get more intense. As 2017 Heisman Trophy winner, Baker Mayfield out of Oklahoma is now being linked to the Cleveland Browns at No.1
Per multiple media outlets, the 6’0, 220-pound signal caller out of Lake Travis, Texas is “definitely” in consideration for being taken No.1 overall by the winless Browns, with big-armed Wyoming quarterback Josh Allen being the other QB that Cleveland is leaning towards.
One day it’s Sam Darnold, the next it’s Allen and now today it’s Mayfield. Someone call Vanna White from “Wheel Of Fortune” as the proverbial letters to the draft puzzle are slowly being turned.
Where can we buy a vowel?
While some may scoff–as per the norm whenever it comes to the Browns, when picking at No.1–but whomever they pick, there is going to be more bellyaching than a Tums convention.
Darnold has ball security issues, Allen is inaccurate, Josh Rosen is fragile and Lamar Jackson is seen by critics as the next coming of Kordell “Slash” Stewart. Mayfield is “vertically challenged” as they say in PC-land, but cannot help but see that he balls out better than possibly every QB in this draft.
