Jets, Bills finally appear to have franchise QB in making

Jets, Bills finally appear to have franchise QB in making

On Thursday night, ending months of speculation, Cleveland used its No. 1 pick on Mayfield. Will be updated. With AP Photos.

They are drafting a quarterback, with Heisman Trophy victor Baker Mayfield in the crosshairs. Rosen's selection gives the Bruins a first-round draft pick for the fifth time in the last six seasons and is their highest selection since Anthony Barr went ninth overall in 2014.

"Here's a guy who already has created an upset because he's a walk-on Heisman Trophy victor".

Reigning Heisman Trophy victor Baker Mayfield was the first pick Thursday in the 2018 National Football League draft, the annual selection of college players that helps teams in America's most popular sport replenish their rosters. If New York doesn't take the Penn State product, he probably won't get past No.4 overall when Cleveland makes their second pick. Mayfield is the first Heisman recipient taken first in the following draft since Cam Newton went to Carolina in 2010.

Mayfield, who had a stellar college career at Oklahoma but also made headlines with his behavior on and off the field, will be tasked with turning around a Browns team that went 0-16 last season. "He is a man that has earned every little thing he has ever had since highschool to school and now up right here. He is a victor, he's competitive".

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.




The New York Giants also have the second pick in the draft, which they haven't had since 1981 when Lawrence Taylor was drafted. New York's chips are the same as those other three franchises, and given Darnold was considered the top pick throughout much of the process, this isn't a gamble. No pressure...you are just expected to be the best Jets' quarterback since that guy named Joe Namath. "They get paid to their job, and I'll get paid to do mine".

Now, Darnold will enter a preseason quarterback competition with veteran signal caller Josh McCown and the recently-acquired Teddy Bridgewater. Rosen certainly thinks they did. "That's what I've been doing my whole life, and I'm not going to do anything different".

The early going was, as projected, quarterback heavy.

Although Allen played against smaller schools and had issues with completion percentage, his arm strength, size (6-foot-5, 225 pounds) and leadership skills won over the Bills.

The bartering wasn't over. The Cardinals jumped up five spots to 10 to select Josh Rosen, the most polished and pro-ready quarterback in the class as they look to compete in the high-powered NFC West.
