Is Baker Mayfield Jets Chatter Legit or a Smokescreen?

And the Browns, with two of the top four selections in this year's draft, could be looking at adding a quarterback and high-profile running back as they hit "reset" once more. And how do they have answers? It is possible they won't have the final decision until the Browns make their selection. "To me, that's why Baker is at the top of the board".

It's a testament to how good the franchise's run was in the 80s and early-90s that they didn't have a top-five pick against until 1996. If Allen goes first and running back Saquon Barkley goes second to the New York Giants, the Jets could find Darnold in their lap. "The exciting thing for me is I feel like I've really helped myself out and I feel like I've performed well". It has everything to do with production. And that is the point, despite great production and meeting everything you need in terms of measurements and athleticism, they get passed over. I graduated. So that's going to take me throughout life. "I didn't look at their playbook as much as a I should have", Mayfield said. But the 6-foot-2 5/8, 222-pounder has had ample opportunities to impress scouts - and he's done it.

He wasn't able to participate in the National Football League combine after a heart condition was detected by doctors there, but he was medically cleared in time for Michigan's pro day according to National Football League analyst Dan Parr. His accuracy is incredible. If Darnold slips to No. 3, yes, I believe the Jets would happily pick him.

I think both are in for a big change at the college level. "Now they are in that middle ground where they think he could possibly be the next guy and they think they have another couple years out of Manning, so, 'Maybe we will pass (on a quarterback) here'". Additionally, he's the farthest thing from a liability off the field, and his leadership only contributes to his overall stock.

"After that it's a mixed bag".

Josh Rosen QB, UCLA is... The top three prospects are widely regarded as South Dakota State's Dallas Goedert, South Carolina's Hayden Hurst and Penn State's Mike Gesicki. He struggled against good competition during his time at Wyoming, but he really had few weapons to throw to. So that's an area he's going to continue to grow.

Josh Allen is a prospect that a lot of the Cleveland fanbase will not like given their history with quarterbacks.

"I agree with the executive I spoke to last week who said Barkley is a better player than Ezekiel Elliott". He was working with new personnel at receiver and along the offensive line that affected him, especially against bigger schools.

8 of 9 Mock Drafts have him drafted, with Mel Kiper placing him in the third round and 4 others having him go in the fourth round.
