Baker Mayfield appeared on ABC's Jimmy Kimmel Live!

The newest member of the Cleveland Browns and the number one draft pick in the 2018 NFL Draft had some laughs with late night funnyman Jimmy Kimmel.

When the pick was announced during the bottom of the seventh inning, Indians radio announcer Tom Hamilton couldn't help but note the unenthusiastic reaction around the stadium.

The more that 20,000 on hand inside of at AT&T Stadium, the first draft at an National Football League stadium, erupted in cheers as commissioner Roger Goodell announced the Browns' decision.

Cleveland also had the fourth pick Thursday and used it to select Denzel Ward, a cornerback from Ohio State.

Wynn actually played a part of this last college season with a torn labrum which he battled through and continued to play. The newest Jet threw for 4,143 yards as a redshirt sophomore in 2017 to lead USC to its first Pac-12 title since 2008 and a New Year's Six bowl game for the second consecutive season.

"I was really angry teams were passing on me, and I was honestly expecting to get picked at some point and have to fake a smile and go up there and pretend to be happy", he said.

The Browns had been expected to take a quarterback and had insisted Mayfield was under consideration through the pre-draft process.

The Browns have started 28 different quarterbacks in the previous 19 years since their return, and after overhauling the position room in the offseason, they will start at least their 29th signal-caller. But when Cleveland selected Oklahoma's Baker Mayfield, there were some nervous moments for the Jets.

"He shot me a text and said "Good luck" and just that he appreciated the pic and thought the attention to detail was great", Mayfield said. He always seems to play better when he has something to prove.

"It's been a very entertaining back and forth with him (Dorsey), which makes it fun", Mayfield said. "He is fine. I have no problems with him".

"There were nine mistakes made ahead of me", Rosen said.

Doesn't everyone love being reminded of just how old they're getting? "It's about winning and the mentality and leadership quality".
