Browns GM John Dorsey impressed with Baker Mayfield
There isn’t much doubt, the Cleveland Browns are on the hunt for a franchise quarterback—they have been for over a decade. With two potential Top-10 selections in the 2018 NFL Draft, they will have ample opportunities to select a franchise guy. No, DeShone Kizer isn’t a “franchise quarterback“.
New Browns general manager John Dorsey still has more than five months to formulate plans for the 2018 draft, but he’s watched six games of Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield and come away impressed, according to Peter King of TheMMQB.com. “I want to be able to project and articulate my opinion when the time comes and it matters,” Dorsey said. “I saw [Mayfield] at Kansas this year, in the OU-Kansas game. You’re darn right he’s a good quarterback, no matter how tall he is. Some would say he’s too short, but I would ask you: How tall is Russell Wilson? How tall is Chase Daniel?”
Right now, I do not have Mayfield in my Top 50 NFL Draft prospects pre-bowl games. The entire 50-man list can be seen here.
However, that could change with the college football season not entirely completed and the lengthy draft process still ahead for all of the prospects.
Time will tell just how enamored the Browns are with Mayfield. You may remember the last time Cleveland drafted a quarterback with rumored attitude issues, it was none other than Johnny Football.https://www.myfantasysportstalk.com/browns-gm-john-dorsey-impressed-with-baker-mayfield/https://i1.wp.com/www.myfantasysportstalk.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/12/hi-res-02a69cff4047e59f556c0d6d2d282ac0_crop_north.jpg?fit=800%2C533&ssl=1https://i1.wp.com/www.myfantasysportstalk.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/12/hi-res-02a69cff4047e59f556c0d6d2d282ac0_crop_north.jpg?resize=150%2C150&ssl=1Big 12Cleveland BrownsNFLNFL DraftRecent Postsbaker mayfield,Cleveland Browns,John Dorsey,NFL,NFL DraftThere isn't much doubt, the Cleveland Browns are on the hunt for a franchise quarterback---they have been for over a decade.
