For the Browns, the Baker Mayfield Signs Were There All Along

Mayfield is the first Heisman recipient taken No. 1 overall in the following draft since Cam Newton went to Carolina in 2010.

Still, Mayfield was seen as a longshot to go to the Browns before word leaked out in recent days that Dorsey had the support of assistant GM Eliot Wolf and Scot McCloughan, the former 49ers and Redskins GM now working with Cleveland as a consultant, to make the pick.

The New York Jets, another of the National Football League teams desperate for a franchise quarterback, chose Sam Darnold with the third pick.

Before the last college football season began, Darnold was viewed by many as the top quarterback in the draft class and the player teams should target at No. 1.

After a few years of counterproductive mediocrity, the Browns got the losing thing right, going 1-15 in 2016 and a flawless 0-16 last season. Sam Darnold of Southern California is trying to revive the Jets, while in upstate NY - where the Bills gave up on Tyrod Taylor - the future belongs to Wyoming's Josh Allen.

New York Mets Send Matt Harvey to Bullpen
This should be a pretty good matchup and a fun one to watch, but all things considered I'm going with the Mets. On the heels of back-to-back losses, the Mets chose Harvey. "We're looking at everything", Callaway said .

There are questions about Rosen's durability, but he could be the Jets' best option here.

Apparently, though, Browns general manager John Dorsey was captivated by Mayfield's combination of passing accuracy, ability to extend plays and knack for inspiring teammates. He goes from a former walk-on to No. 1 overall. Dorsey said Ward's excellence in press-man coverage is the flawless fit for Gregg Williams' defense.

Mayfield didn't make the journey to AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, leaving NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell to take the brunt of the group response. "Whatever he's done from high school to college and to here, he's worked his way up". Cleveland addressed a major defensive need and selected defensive end Myles Garrett with the first overall pick a year ago. No pressure...you are just expected to be the best Jets' quarterback since that guy named Joe Namath. If I'm the backup, I'm going to be the best backup I can be and do that.

Now, Darnold will enter a preseason quarterback competition with veteran signal caller Josh McCown and the recently-acquired Teddy Bridgewater. "I think that's what I can bring a franchise". Many are season ticket holders. Ward was the top cornerback and the No. 9 overall prospect on Miller's big board. Others would have preferred another defensive back not named Ward.

After getting selected with the No. 10 overall pick, Rosen had this to say. Thought to be a Heisman Trophy candidate entering the season, Darnold's performance suffered in 2017 while playing behind an inexperienced line and with young wide receivers.
