An undersized quarterback with some character concerns; that preconception clearly didn't phase the Cleveland Browns. "When you win here, everybody rallies around it". The reigning Heisman Trophy victor didn't start the draft process as the number one signal caller on the their board, but there was no doubt in the building by the end of it. "I want to play".

Oklahoma is the lone program to produce two quarterbacks this millennium who were picked No. 1 overall, and the only program since the 1940s to produce two No. 1 QB picks in a 10-year period. Mayfield said. "They brought both him and me in because we're both team-oriented guys".

Day 2 of the rookie minicamp is Saturday. "We can keep writing this narrative, Tyrod Taylor's the starting quarterback of this football team, and that won't change".

Cleveland kicks off a five-game road trip in NY coming off a split of a doubleheader against the Toronto Blue Jays on Thursday. He did not face NY in the regular season in 2017 but was the winning pitcher in Game 2 and made a relief appearance in Game 4.

"The Browns still have Jamar Taylor, who started last season, but are looking to trade him".

But joining the quarterback-starved fans of Northeast Ohio in paying close attention to Baker Mayfield's career path are an army of National Football League executives, scouts and owners, all of them waiting to see the influence Mayfield's career can potentially have on some decades-old mores of personnel evaluation. I think if the Browns are as invested in him as we were at Oklahoma, he's going to return the favor by working his tail off.

But pressed on whether the horse has what it takes to complete a Triple Crown sweep, Baffert adopted a more conservative mood. Because it is so hard to predict five straight winners, Pick 5 bettors usually take home large jackpots.

The Cleveland Browns have had one busy offseason.

But Mayfield's a pro now, he claims more mature from his mistakes, and he's got a clean slate and a new set of priorities.

Mayfield knows why Taylor has the backing of Jackson and noted that his goal is to make similarly favorable impressions with his new teammates. The city of Cleveland has seen the rise and fall of a plethora of quarterbacks throughout the years - some who were doomed from the start. "He is the starter and all I can do is help us out".

Kanu won two Premier League titles, two FA Cups and a Community Shield during his time with the Gunners. He said: "I still have a contract and let's see what happens at the end of this season".

"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".
