Baker Mayfield: The top rookie quarterback for fantasy

Cleveland Browns were set on Baker Mayfield long before draft, says Peter King Did the Browns make the right call with Baker Mayfield at No. 1?
Chelsea Rogers | 08 May, 2018, 02:08

Baker Mayfield's whirlwind introduction to Cleveland included some sage advice from Bernie Kosar at the annual Browns alumni dinner with the rookies on Thursday night and a warm welcome from Browns fans.

The plan for now is for Taylor to start and Mayfield to learn while watching a quarterback who led the Buffalo Bills to their first playoff appearance in 18 years last season. "When you win here, everybody rallies around it".

"I have always wondered, when it comes to being a great football player, whose standards are we judging them by?" "(He was) just talking about he'll be around if I need to bounce things off of him, he's a guy that I can lean on and that's something that makes you feel comfortable, makes you feel at home in a place like this where he's won before".

Mayfield and Cleveland's other rookies are taking part in a minicamp this weekend.

However, Alexis Sanchez's arrival from Arsenal in January has seen his Manchester United form wane. But with Mourinho in the driving seat, Martial's Red Devils career looks over.

At the NFL Combine, Mayfield was asked about turning around a franchise like the Browns who have struggled since they returned to the league in 1999. Mayfield will have to beat out offseason addition Tyrod Taylor for the starting job, then prove he can elevate his supporting cast like he did for the Sooners.

Dorsey may not be finished though, as Jamar Taylor's name appeared in a recent column from Cleveland.com's Terry Pluto. However, since the selection of Oklahoma's Baker Mayfield, there has been the continued dialogue about there being a competition for the starting spot.

"He definitely seems like a very passionate coach so he reminds me a little bit like coach [Kerry] Coombs so I'm definitely excited to be working with him", said Ward. "Right now, we are trying to get back to that". "I have to get prepared, get in the playbook and I'm ready to go to work though". When you get used to somebody new, we've got to make sure we're not having to worry about that.

The Browns returned at pick No 4 and again made a slightly surprising move, opting for Ohio State cornerback Denzel Wardto strengthen an area of weakness rather than take NC State defensive end Bradley Chubb - who fell to the Denver Broncos with the fifth overall pick. "He is the starter and all I can do is help us out". I can only aspire to be like that.
