Browns selected Oklahoma QB Baker Mayfield with the No. 1 overall pick in the 2018 NFL draft.
Mayfield (6’1/215) went 33-6 in 39 starts for the Sooners, finishing second in D-I history in passer efficiency rating (175.4) with a Big 12 all-time record in yards per attempt (9.8), a 131:30 TD-to-INT ratio, and 21 rushing scores. Per PFF College, Mayfield led the nation in QB rating under pressure in 2015 (117.4), 2016 (119.2), and 2017 (111.6). Mayfield has a play-fake-heavy, spread-offense background and lacks ideal height, but his playmaking ability is tangible on tape with plus arm talent and mobility. Only Josh Allen threw with more ball velocity at the Combine in this year’s QB class. Long term, Mayfield should fall on the Jeff Garcia-Russell Wilson spectrum. (Garcia had an underrated prime.) Mayfield will open his career behind Tyrod Taylor in Cleveland.
