Cleveland Browns "Definitely" Considering Baker Mayfield As #1 Pick

Cleveland Browns

CLEVELAND (AP) - As far as Cleveland fans are concerned, only one quarterback fits all the essential criteria for the Browns to draft him with the No. 1 overall pick.

The Bills have a ton of draft capital, so they have the ability to do what they want if they are really willing to give up the necessary picks.

The quarterback conundrum is more like it. However, it appears Cleveland has no choice given all that they have done and will continue to do this offseason. One of those players is nearly assured to be a quarterback, and while there is less certainty about what they will do at number four, options including Penn State running back Saquon Barkley, North Carolina State defensive lineman Bradley Chubb, and possibly moving down, are dominating that conversation.

First-round receivers, by median, score a touchdown about once every 3.37 games, second-round picks in the position went on to score in approximately every 4.23 games while third rounders notched touchdowns in around every 8.62 games - less than twice a season. NY takes QB Sam Darnold.

Remember: The entire National Football League world knows that Maccagnan is going to draft a quarterback on Thursday night. The chances to trade down and capitalize on the desperation of another team, or the chances to move up and target specific players they like, are too great. Darnold struggled mightily in the turnover department in college and his decision making and pocket awareness must improve with his transition to the pros.

Cleveland selects QB Sam Darnold first-overall. The Giants have been effusive in their praise of the Nittany Lion star. We'll find out on Thursday.

Saquon Barkley? Ludicrous idea. Penn State defeated Nebraska 56-44.

The San Francisco 49ers have one of these positions locked down, in the way of quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo. NY takes Bradley Chubb (DE NC State). The loss of Michael Bennett and Sheldon Richardson, Seattle will need to reload with pass-rushers. The Giants hosted Chubb for private workouts two weeks ago and have recently increased their interest towards him.

New England Patriots (via Los Angeles Rams) - Isaiah Wynn, OL, University of Georgia.

In the past two drafts, the Saints have drafted three players from Ohio State. Numbers that simply can not be ignored.

Baker in Green?After Darnold and Allen, Mayock ranked Rosen and Mayfield third and fourth, respectively, in his positional rankings. Sign up for FREE here.

Cornerbacks are having to cover a shorter amount of field, linebackers don't have as much ground to cover and can react quicker and safeties are able to keep everything in front of them. The total number of quarterbacks selected in the first round is set at 5.5 with -220 odds favoring the UNDER. They will make the right play, as new general manager John Dorsey grabs the quarterback who is going to turn this franchise around for once.

The secondary undoubtedly remains the biggest need the Browns have on their defense, despite the addition of Damarious Randall from the Packers.

Browns are likely going to be featured on this year's HBO Hard Knocks series, per source. Quite a few teams are looking to trade up high in the first round to pursue one of the top quarterbacks.
