He should be considered the favorite to start for Cleveland in Week 1. He has already hurt his shoulder and more than that, he suffered not one, but two concussions a year ago. This lack of success is largely driven by incredibly poor drafting. Their infamous bust list includes Brady Quinn, Colt McCoy, Brandon Weeden, Johnny Manziel, and Deshone Kizer.
"I have no qualms about this guy whatsoever as a man and as a football player".
For the No. 2 pick, the New York Giants chose Penn State running back Saquon Barkley. All three are safe bets to be selected some time Friday, when rounds two and three are completed. "That's what I've done my whole life, not going to do any different". Guess Sam Darnold will have to show what he capable of. The only knock I had on him was a bit of a turnover problem, but it was one that I believe could be fixed.
And so the Baker Mayfield era commences!
Which Teams Are the Best Fit for Dez? Yep, Browns fans might have the chance to meet Jesse at a Browns game. The knock is that he is just six feet tall and tradition says you do not pick this type of QB at one.
Meanwhile, stars such as T.Y. Hilton (third round), Stefon Diggs (fifth), Keenan Allen (third) and Alshon Jeffery (second) were picked after the first round.
First Sam Darnold, and then Josh Allen, had been the buzz around which signal caller the Browns would opt for, but as Draft Day dawned in Dallas, speculation centred on Mayfield and when they were put on the clock by Commissioner Roger Goodell, it was the 2017 Heisman Trophy victor that Dorsey opted for. But instead, they pick Ward. I'm really comfortable in my own skin. They may have still gotten Ward, and if they didn't, they could have gotten a fine substitute in a fairly deep DB class. "To think that they were all there in that moment for wherever was going to be the fresh start, it was then a whole lot of emotion packed into one phone call so when he asked me [if I was ready to be the No. 1 selection], it was an emotional thing for me". I'm a huge Josh Rosen fan! "If you've got a franchise that has maybe had some tough years, whatever it is, this is a guy that has enough self-belief and confidence to be a part of turning it around".
"This is fantastic, we love the atmosphere, it's a lot of fans here, it's just a good atmosphere, we love it", said Cowboys fan Laquisha Ross. They needed a wide receiver, having just cut longtime cornerstone Dez Bryant and possessing no real No. 1 replacement, despite their free agency addition of Allen Hurns.
