  • Baker Mayfield is the NFL Draft's No

The Cleveland Browns surprised the National Football League world by making quarterback Baker Mayfield the first overall pick in the draft Thursday.

Sure enough, that's exactly what hapened and Goldhammer says he'll live up to his promise.

But Mayfield also garnered negative attention in recent years for his on-field antics, which included making an inappropriate gesture toward Kansas' sideline and planting Oklahoma's flag on Ohio State's logo at the 50-yard line after the Sooners' victory over the Buckeyes.

Ohio State's Denzel Ward is officially moving on to the pros, as the cornerback was taken by his hometown team, the Cleveland Browns, in the first round of the 2018 NFL Draft on Thursday night.

Mayfield was a controversial prospect coming into the draft, but he's a clear victor, favored by the analytical crowd, and is a true leader of men at quarterback.

Chubb's biggest weakness is in the receiving game.


Mayfield was a three-year starter at Oklahoma after starting one season for Texas Tech. "Ward [is] another young prospect that adds to the pipeline of youth that new Browns general manager John Dorsey has coveted and found this offseason".

BEREA, Ohio - Baker Mayfield vows it won't be hard to leave the silliness in the past. "That's nothing against him, but what I've been able to do is be upfront and honest about who I am during these meetings". This year they traded a first round pick along with two second round picks to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for pick seven and took Josh Allen, who has a lot of question marks with his game.

And although he may be Cleveland's quarterback of the future, the present belongs to Tyrod Taylor, who was acquired by the Browns in a trade from Buffalo.

The Browns need stability at the running back position and elsewhere after going 0-16 in 2017, and Chubb gives them some depth alongside Carlos Hyde and Duke Johnson.

With the first pick of the third round, the 65th overall pick, the Oakland Raiders chose Brandon Parker, an offensive tackle from N.C. A&T State. I know in my mind I wanted to come back and he wanted to come back. "I'm ready to go to work". "He's a guy that I could sit behind and learn from".
