    Baker Mayfield is emerging as my favorite QB at #1 overall right there with Darnold-DucknobodyblockedBosaagain. Here's an article below - if you want to see and listen to the videos - open the link. http://www.clevelandbrowns.com/news/article-5/Baker-Mayfield-would-embrace-being-No-1-pick-‘I-want-to-be-the-guy-for-a-franchise’/a455ec8f-fb90-4738-8882-2818c663562f Baker Mayfield would embrace being No. 1 pick: ‘I want to be the guy for a franchise’ Posted 25 minutes ago Patrick Maks Staff Writer Twitter The Oklahoma QB is projected to be a first-round pick Baker Mayfield believes he’s the best quarterback in this year’s NFL Draft class. As such, the former Oklahoma star and Heisman Trophy winner, said he’d embrace the opportunity to be the top pick this spring and, subsequently, help turn the Browns around after the franchise’s first winless season. “I’d take it, absolutely,” Mayfield told NFL Network at the Super Bowl last week. “People talk about, they'd rather fall down in the draft to the right team. No — I want to play somewhere that’s a challenge, I want to be the guy for a franchise. I want to be the face of a franchise and I want turn it around.” Mayfield, perhaps one of the most polarizing prospects in this year’s draft, is among several quarterbacks widely projected to be first-round picks. It’s a list that includes USC’s Sam Darnold, UCLA’s Josh Rosen, Wyoming’s Josh Allen and Louisville’s Lamar Jackson. The Browns, owners of the first and fourth overall selections, will continue their dissection of those signal-callers in search of an elusive long-term answer at the position. In an interview two weeks ago at the Senior Bowl, new Browns general manager John Dorsey said multiple quarterbacks in this year’s class have caught the team’s attention. “There are four or five prospects in this class that make you think at least whether they’re worthy of that position (at No. 1),” he said. “We’re at the beginning stages, let’s understand who they are as people, let’s understand them as football players, let’s see if they can be the face of the franchise and are they the guys for the Cleveland Browns. That’s how I look at it.” Mayfield, a former walk-on at Texas Tech who’s earned high marks from evaluators for his accuracy, poise in the pocket, mobility and leadership qualities, would appear to be firmly in that mix. To be certain, he’ll face questions regarding his maturity (he celebrated an upset win against Ohio State by planting a flag midfield at the Horseshoe and, later in the year, made a crude gesture during a game against Kansas) and an arrest last spring for public intoxication and disorderly conduct. Dorsey, asked specifically about Mayfield (who was one of several top prospects on display at the Senior Bowl), played down those concerns. “I think it’s a narrative you guys have created. We’ll see. I haven't really met him, I don't really know who he is as a person,” said Dorsey, who added he was in attendance at the Kansas game prior to joining the Browns' front office in December. “I think after I do meet him I’ll be able to see what's deep inside him and see what makes him click and that's part of the process.” That process continues in three weeks at the league’s annual scouting combine. Mayfield will have the opportunity to keep making his case. Asked what kind of player he’ll be in the NFL, Mayfield said: “(They’re getting) a winner, somebody that cares more about it than anybody else in that building.” “I'd really do anything for those guys, doesn't matter what team it is,” he continued. “They get a winner, they get somebody who really cares about the game and who loves it.”

    Sashi Brown's NFL gravemarker reads "passed on Wentz, passed on Watson, didn't ante up for Jimmy, couldn't beat the clock on A.J*, here lies 1-31" I expect Dorsey to be WAY more aggressive when it comes to securing a franchise QB for the Cleveland Browns. If he goes down, he goes down swinging. Zombo *Not that I am any fan of McCarren, but the fact that he botched that trade was his final kiss of death

    If we have a clear #1 QB in mind among the 1st 3, then we just need to take him. No f'n around, no trading down, no Barkely or anyone else @ #1.

    What games did he miss? You don't have to go back neeeearly that far to see that issue on the Browns roster.

    Besides we already have Allen. He plays exactly the same way and did show some flashes of learning in the last few games. If he'd had any WRs worth a damn other than JG, he might have been able to show us more. Too many game changing drops last year only topped off by Coleman's stone handed miss in the last game.

    I swear to God it's like you people don't even know how the google machine works. Barkley: https://www.sports-reference.com/cfb/players/saquon-barkley-1.html Zeke: https://www.sports-reference.com/cfb/players/ezekiel-elliott-1.html And you'd realize their stats are actually alarmingly similar. They scored the exact same amount of rushing TD's and within 100 yards of each other in rushing yards. Barkley decisively has the edge in receiving TD's as well and only has a lower YPC clip as he rushed over 100 times more than Zeke did. If you don't like a guy, that's fine. This has not for me ever been a love fest for Barkley. But jesus christ, at least try to make a case for yourself.

    Yes, it is a no-brainer to say we should have drafted him over Johnny. But what we really should have done is traded for him. Before last year. When we could get him in there for a year before the contract was due. I think I had about 100 page thread about it. We deiced to do nothing and bank on a 21 year old second rounder instead. And then when we realized the consequences of that, we were passed over by NE for Grop and made a lame attempt at McCarron that failed. That's why Sashi isn't here. Because of Wentz, Watson, the Grop trade and the failed McCarron trade. But hopefully this bullshit is over. In Dorsey We Trust. Zombo

    Hard to disagree with flugel on just about anything. I guess if there was a gun to my head I would take Rosen or Darnold. But I would not be the slightest bit unhappy if they took Mayfield especially at number 4. It really is hard not to like the kid. As far as pre-draft interviews, seriously, who cares? Unless a kid came out and said man I want to play for the Browns even if they trade down to the second round to get me. Everybody wants to be picked high and everybody wants to take that team to the promised land. And there's no reason to believe that he's a head case. I really liked Johnny but he had serious mental problems, that had nothing to do with what conference he played in or how tall he was. Plus, for what it's worth, Bob Stoops loves the kid. Grabbing his pecker towards the opponent? Good. We could use a little bit of the ghost of Chris gardocki. WSS

    Foles earned the right to sit in Philly a year & never have to buy 1 Dinner with Drinks.. AJ McCarron just had a wet dream counting his last $690K salary..Just say "No Way" to Hue & Jimmy Dorsey.. So now what is AJ worth? Dalton sits a 16M same with Glennon at Bears..

    The list of guys we shoulda, coulda drafted since 1999 is as long as my arm. I was probably wrong and Jimmy- and if he pans out, I'll admit I'm wrong. But to give a guy $$$$ and declare him a "franchise qb"after 7 starts is a tad premature. The 49ers better hope he's not another Derek Anderson. Plenty of chatter on nfl.com to tag Jimmy in 2018, and then give him the long term contract the following year.

    I know but RELUCTANTLY took A. Brown on one ream, turned out to be the best player in FL-land. Oh I also on draft day picked up a surprisingly still available C, Wentz to backup Rodgers.....won't get that one next year.

    Ever see the Movie "The Firm" ? Then you have a pretty good idea what PK is like, they've been involved in a lot more shady goings on than just this. I don't know, somehow I get the impression that Tam is one badass Lawyer . . . http://thegatewaypundit.com/2018/02/text-messages-between-corrupt-fbi-and-mueller-investigators-strzok-and-page-implicate-hillary-clinton/ I think I need to sit down some time and list all "Gates" going on right now. Seriously, I don't think there's been this many scandals at one time in history. No "plausible deniability" here. http://thegatewaypundit.com/2018/02/fbi-informant-told-barack-obama-briefed-twice-uranium-one-scandal-nothing-video/ Sorry folks, if O was your hero you need to come to grips that he was evil to the core - very charismatic (with a Teleprompter), but flat out evil. https://www.judicialwatch.org/press-room/press-releases/judicial-watch-documents-reveal-state-department-provided-classified-records-sen-ben-cardin-undermine-president-trump/?utm_source=t.co&utm_medium=social&utm_campaign=press release Going to cut this section short for now because the next section has the potential be be very long (Q / Dilley related). It is really getting crazy the amount of info that is coming in on a daily basis now, just trying to hit some high points it still gets to be too long. = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = Q / Dilley Intel = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = There was a "live" smash and grab last night, here we start the story (also confirmed by Dilley). 2 minutes to go, Mercedes going into underground garage. I was on this when it was happening, but being "live" no point in posting about it then as it would be hours before anyone saw it. Now this was actually brought up a few days ago by Q, not sure if I posted about Rosenstein, but I think everyone knows by now how crooked he is. This next bit may piss some people off (self included) - don't scoff at this. Two different approaches here (there are more) https://www.naturalhealth365.com/gcmaf_protein.html/ https://truepundit.com/study-new-cancer-vaccine-totally-eliminates-97-mice-tumors/ There are many reasons for this - I think Dilley may cover one (haven't looked at printout, just listened to Scope). Bolding mine, my notes in () If you have a good memory and read most of my postings, you should be connecting a whole lotta dots about now (hint: Bush : Mayo Clinic Board of Directors). Hoping someone will grab the notes from FB tonight and I'll pass them on. Some days I could double or triple (easily) what I post - this is one of those days. EDIT: Just saw this and had to post it EDIT 2: Correction - Dilley notes mentioned "Cali", was cleared up today to be California (Cali was shorthand). Chain of command - Obama -> McCain -> Soros. McCain is go between between the two. Dem / Rep ? No difference, though everyone knows McC is a RINO

    Go the the next UT/Va. Tech game they play there. Now...that was pretty cool. (I have been by that racetrack. And even though I don't like racing personally....I begrudge it to no on else. In fact, I have even taken tours of both the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, and Talladega Speedway. I drove around both tracks...in a bus ...err..I mean, I was driven) Cool sites to see. I have been outside of the Bristol Speedway, the one in Homestead, and DAytona (did not go in or tour those however...just passed by them....maybe stopped to take a photo).

    And played in a Dome ..Imagine Brady's numbers if half his games were in a dome. Brees & C. Keenum dropped many dimes in that same dome 2 weeks ago..Not many good numbers on Keenum outdoors. Strafford & Ryan maybe the best that can take some off to drop ball in from dome to outdoors? If ya like Mike White watch some tape on Luke Falk. Reminds me of Nick Foles running RPO's

    I'm not wild about the Big 12 and how little it contests passers/receivers - but I am wild about the QB. He beat Ohio State AT Ohio State and then he scored 48 points on UGA in a double OT loss. While we're at it here - you are aware the Mason Rudolph you are most fond of also played in the Big 12 right? There was a trend once upon a time that concluded don't draft a Tedford System QB. Then 1 day the Green Bay Packers dared to challenge the trend and drafted themselves Aaron Rodgers at #24 overall. Sometimes it takes balls to win. Before that, another trend said don't fall for the BYU system QB when guys like Gifford Nielson, Marc Wilson, Ty Detmer, Robbie Boscoe and others never panned out or found a better niche than backup QB. But Jim McMahon and Steve Young were 2 QBs bucked such a trend. They became Superbowl Winning QBs that made NFL Pro Bowls as well There was a time when NFL Teams and scouts were wary of drafting a Veer Option QB. And then Brett Favre and Donovan McNabb came along and made countless Pro Bowls via leading their teams to numerous post seasons and the Superbowl. Favre's backup of 9 years at Green Bay sure liked using that RPO with his Championship Winning QB this year. Manziel played in the SEC and that didn't do ski-wat for us. You draft the player - not the school or the conference. As I said, the other QB I like just as much is Sam Darnold.
