Lincoln Riley calls Baker Mayfield 'a winner' on College GameDay

Lincoln Riley calls Baker Mayfield 'a winner' on College GameDay

Bob Stoops said earlier this month that a movie or TV show could be made about Mayfield's journey from Oklahoma walk-on to National Football League quarterback.

The Cleveland Plain Dealer is among those reporting that quarterback Baker Mayfield is expected to be the Cleveland Browns' pick with the No. 1 overall selection in the 2018 NFL Draft. Do the Browns choose one of the available, highly touted blue chip quarterback prospects, 2017 Heisman Trophy victor Baker Mayfield from Oklahoma, 2016 Heisman Trophy victor Lamar Jackson from Louisville, Sam Darnold from USC, Josh Rosen from UCLA or Josh Allen from Wyoming, or just ride it out with Taylor? Here are my best guesses as to where Mayfield will go. They "can't get too cute" or hope for a player to be around in a later round. None are the long-term answer.

Saints and Cowboys fans in the area can't wait to find out who their team is going to pick in the first round. This is a franchise crying for a franchise quarterback.

The Bills and Browns make sense to do a trade based around the No. 4 pick. But they could and make Sooner Nation swoon.

The Browns also own the fourth overall selection in Thursday's first round. They both think highly of themselves as well. But is Keenum a long-term answer or just a stopgap improvement over Trevor Siemian?

Men arrested at Starbucks want 'this situation to never happen again'
On Wednesday, Johnson and Starbucks founder Howard Schultz met with Philadelphia church and community leaders. Ross wasn't discussing the policy yet, but said it will be pushed out at a later date.


"Hello, Cleveland? This is John Elway". To use the No. 1 overall pick on a QB such as Mayfield is just irresponsible. More likely the G-Men trade down than take a quarterback.

Mayfield played one year at Texas Tech before transferring to Oklahoma. Rounds two and three are Friday, and rounds four through seven are Saturday.

Cleveland had been enamored with Mayfield's skillset ever since the draft process started. Instead of taking DE Bradley Chubb, a pick that most people thought was a foregone conclusion for months, they instead took CB Denzel Ward.

Swapping picks with the Indianapolis Colts to move from No. 6 up to No. 3, the Jets ensured that they will have their choice of a top-level quarterback prospect that can be groomed under Josh McCown and Teddy Bridgewater for at least a season. Two questions. How would Belichick live with Mayfield's celebrity desires?
