Cleveland Browns "Definitely" Considering Baker Mayfield As #1 Pick

Jon Gruden will look to build a defensive juggernaut, like the one that gave him a title in Tampa. I'm glad we got to have Harrison share with us his picks, because chances are he'll get more right than a good chunk of the national experts.
Now Allen's looking to follow the same path as Bohl's signal caller with the Bisons, who's now flying high after being the 2nd overall pick two years ago. "And I'm fascinated to see how they move forward".
Any agreement with the Broncos will not be consummated until Denver is on the clock during the first round. They went on an 8-game losing streak in the heart of their schedule and lost 10 of 12 games. "Then position comes into play".
It is nearly certain however, that the Browns will take a quarterback, a troublesome position for them over the years. He was third in the nation in IQR under pressure and seventh in passes outside the pocket.
Think about it, next to the Yankees and maybe the Red Sox, who else is more of a "rival" for this Indians squad than the gang from the North Side.
Mayfield was a second- to fourth-round projection before the 2017 season.
He's got swagger. We saw that in Columbus when Mayfield planted the OU flag after the Sooners beat the Buckeyes last fall. The main focus for the Raiders should be to really round out their lineup as best as they can.
The Arizona Cardinals seem to be serious about securing their quarterback of the future now rather than later. "It's fun getting back". They dug themselves a hole at the beginning of the season, going 0-4, which made it too hard for them to recover enough to make the playoffs. He was named a first-team All American and All-SEC after a great senior season at Auburn. Coach Payton said that this season will be one for continued growth. Drew Brees is still playing at an elite level, Alvin Kamara and Mark Ingram have formed a dynamic running back duo and Michael Thomas is one of the league's best receivers. The Giants, with the No. 2 pick, also could snag a quarterback.
Smith would add more depth to the Jaguars offensive line, and he could be a starter this season.
Neither team is in dire need of a quarterback and could get quite the return if they traded their respective picks. But before that final decision, whenever it was made, Mayfield was in that conversation. New England has had success trading up and down to acquire assets. The question now for Allen is just where exactly that is going to be.
Dorsey was dragged through the mud on his way out of Kansas City. Say what you want about Ford or Fisher failing to live up to expectation, but years after being selected, the Chiefs are leaning upon both to fill in serious roles in 2018. That includes a 14-0 record in road games, with seven those victories against ranked teams.
None of this is to say that the team should avoid drafting a tight end altogether, as history shows that there have been many tight ends to come through later rounds, or undrafted altogether, that have gone on to hall of fame careers.
Because the Saints are in position to contend now, and given the narrowing window to win it all with Brees, New Orleans could seize an opportunity to trade draft picks for veterans. "I didn't want Alabama to play against him".
