"It taught me patience", Mayfield said. Cleveland recently picked up quarterback Tyrod Taylor from the Buffalo Bills this spring, which led many fans to believe that Taylor would be the Browns' franchise quarterback. However, since the selection of Oklahoma's Baker Mayfield, there has been the continued dialogue about there being a competition for the starting spot. He has a lot of characteristics that we love.
Mayfield knows why Taylor has the backing of Jackson and noted that his goal is to make similarly favorable impressions with his new teammates.
"He definitely seems like a very passionate coach so he reminds me a little bit like coach [Kerry] Coombs so I'm definitely excited to be working with him", said Ward.
"They brought him and I in because we're both team-oriented guys", said Mayfield. In 2001, one of the weakest quarterback classes of the past 20 years, Brees still couldn't crack the first round, even after Mike Vick went No. 1 overall to the Falcons. At the combine, within my group, he was my guy and was just around him a bunch. "It doesn't matter where I was drafted, you start over". Four quarterbacks went in the top 10, starting with Mayfield at No. 1 and UCLA's Josh Rosen going No. 10, with Sam Darnold and Josh Allen sandwiched in between. Obviously, he displayed he can throw the football. "That is the way it should be because I can play out of the 'gun".
Bishop 'concerned' by Beijing's South China Sea military build up
The construction of hangars on Mischief Reef is said to be part of China's militarization of the West Philippine Sea. The Philippines' presidential palace said it did not have confirmed reports on the missile deployment.
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.
Former Georgia running back Nick Chubb will have bragging rights with his roommate during the Cleveland Browns' rookie minicamp this week. If Taylor struggles and the Browns get off to yet another terrible start, the calls for Mayfield will become overbearing.
"We've got to make sure we're not having to worry about that", said Mayfield of taking care of the ball. 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's the last one to leave, and I can only aspire to be like that".
