Two Pac-12 quarterbacks were selected in the top 10 of the 2018 NFL Draft Thursday night, with USC's Sam Darnold going third overall to the New York Jets and UCLA's Josh Rosen going 10th to the Arizona Cardinals. Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield went to the Cleveland Browns with the No. 1 pick. Jackson and Dorsey said it was what sold them on using the No. 1 overall pick on the Oklahoma quarterback. The former first-round pick has contributed just six sacks and 31 tackles in 30 games for the niners and is unlikely to contribute in any major way in 2018.
Ward is from Macedonia and he graduated from Nordonia High School. "He is a victor, he's competitive".
What's next: Barring a trade up back into the first round, the Browns enter the second round with two of the top three picks in the second round and three overall.
"In my opinion, the best player in the draft", ESPN's Kirk Herbstreit said of Barkley, adding he considers him the best back to come out of college since Adrian Peterson in 2007.
Each team selected its "draft ambassadors", and the list of attendees ranges from locals who just happen to root for, say, the Eagles or Bills or Jets, to fans who will travel to North Texas (Falcons, Ravens). Allen apologized on Thursday. Bookmakers have been taken aback by the level of interest in betting on the NFL Draft, which is part of the reason why they expanded the options this year.
Mayfield will be tasked with turning around the Browns team that finished 0-16 last season.
In February 2017, he was arrested for public intoxication, disorderly conduct, fleeing and resisting arrest after an incident in Fayetteville, Ark. He reached a plea deal last June and paid fines for several of the charges. He tossed 26 touchdowns and 13 interceptions. He made more than 40 starts during his career, including three seasons worth for the Sooners. The Browns are known for having a revolving door on their quarterback position. After they tossed footballs Wednesday with youngsters and participated in some modified drills with the kids as part of the NFL's Play Football Clinic, numerous players projected as top 10 picks assessed what might happen at AT&T Stadium.
Coach Hue Jackson called Mayfield "the best quarterback in the draft.by far". "From here on now, I've got to do everything to represent her and try to set an example for her, for the good things I do and the mistakes I make in my life that she can learn from". "He is a great kid". In no other draft this century have four QBs been taken in the top 10 picks. "I'm a pretty confident guy".
