Browns' Baker Mayfield isn't a cookie cutter quarterback

John Dorsey gets business done at Cleveland Indians game

Former Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield, who went from walk-on to Heisman Trophy victor, was taken by the Cleveland Browns as the No. 1 pick in last Thursday's NFL Draft.

However, head coach Hue Jackson, who really should not have an National Football League head coaching job, said that free agent Tyrod Taylor is the team's starter and that's not going to change.

All eyes will be on rookie Mayfield.

"I remember Russell, he was one of the best interviews I've ever been around", the third scout said. Baker doesn't know. The thing I like about the young man, he's going to do the work. "It's a blank slate, and right now I'm not going to get complacent". Cleveland recently picked up quarterback Tyrod Taylor from the Buffalo Bills this spring, which led many fans to believe that Taylor would be the Browns' franchise quarterback.

This is also great news for brands as they now get to enable their target audience to buy rather than just show them promotions. So, players like BookMyShow and PayTM that sell movie tickets will be able to sell tickets on Instagram as well.

It didn't even faze Mayfield that at least a half-dozen teams had him QB1 on their draft boards.

"They brought him and I because we are both team-oriented guys", Mayfield said. He's the starter, and all I can do is help us out. He comes in early. I can only aspire to be like that.

Former Oklahoma head coach Bob Stoops, who was with Mayfield when he was drafted, was glad he was the No. 1 pick and that he was headed to the Cleveland Browns.

That doesn't mean there isn't a huge learning curve for Mayfield, who passed for 4,627 yards and accounted for 48 touchdowns with just six interceptions while leading Oklahoma to the College Football Playoff last season.

No Israelis have been hurt in the weeks of protests and the military has faced global criticism for its use of live ammunition. Israel has been retaliating with full force against this protest, killing several, including a Palestinian journalist.

The former Heisman Trophy victor spent a majority of his college career in the shotgun.

Day two of the rookie minicamp is Saturday. "It doesn't matter where I got drafted; you have to start over". "Obviously, it puts you in position to turn the ball over, so [it's important we're] making sure we handle the basics first, and then you're able to move on and progress from there". "That's why he's here", said Jackson. I got his number and talked to him and bounced a lot of things off of him.

It is unclear whether Mayfield will sit for a year to learn his trade or go straight into the starting line-up, but author and Sports Illustrated writer King says Mayfield was a clear favourite of the Browns well before the three-day event in Arlington, Texas.
