National Football League mock draft: Broncos, Redskins benefit as top QBs tumble

27 January 2018

"That's all out the window".

His big goal for the week, he said: "Prove that I can belong".

The Cleveland Browns are apparently taking a look at former Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield with their first pick in the draft.

Leaked Renders of Samsung's Galaxy S9 Show Off Incremental Updates
Samsung could leapfrog the Pixel and the iPhone to become the smartphone of choice for those who snap a lot of photos. Samsung will bring 8-megapixel selfie cameras to the Galaxy S9 models, as well as stereo speakers at the bottom.

Mayfield didn't hold back when asked what the Browns would be getting if they turn in a card with his name on it. Someone could be getting a steal, perhaps in the mid to late rounds, when they pick up Smythe in April's NFL Draft. They'll take turns discussing what they saw in Mobile, at the East-West Shrine Game and the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl, and whatever intel the scouts gleaned throughout the year during conversations with various college coaches, including strength and conditioning assistants. Put me on a board and let me show you how much I know about the game.

"He just told me, you're stepping into a locker room with 30-year-old guys, if you're not mentally ready, it's going to eat you alive and I just took that into account", Allen said of that conversation after the 2016 season. Coaching the South will be Bill O'Brien and his Houston Texans staff. "But coming down here, you see some of the guys that they're writing up or scouting, then you get a chance to see them firsthand and get a feel for how they feel about a player". Both Dorsey and McCloughan are known to value numerous same traits mentally and physically in players. There are interviews and background work and things we'll never know.

"You want a consistent player".

We can do this again: Kohli after Johannesburg win
The bowlers were outstanding, I mean to take all the 60 wickets in the series, we haven't done it ever before away from home. Kohli and Vijay batted away close to 20 overs when batting looked the most hard thing on the earth - in the first session.

I think what Stephen said was pretty compelling in the sense that now all of a sudden all this passion on the sideline as they always describe Dez Bryant's blowups, which have been far more infrequent in recent years, now all of a sudden they are perceiving them as detrimental to the team. Pumphrey was drafted by the Philadelphia Eagles, and will be playing for a Super Bowl next week when his team faces Tom Brady and the New England Patriots in Minneapolis, Minn., but this weekend belongs to his former teammate Rashaad Penny. Mayfield is the definition of a high risk/high reward player.

Don't watch Griffin because he has an interesting story, watch him because he's a gifted football player. Apparently, Mayfield had a say in it as well... "Other than that, we're nothing alike".

"Everybody wants to portray the bad-boy, the Johnny Manziel stuff", Mayfield said. "Im an emotional player". He had 18.5 sacks and 33.5 tackles for loss the last two seasons at CFU. A February arrest, him planting the Oklahoma flag at Ohio State's 50-yard line and his infamous crotch grab all helped create that image. "But this is what I was meant to do, is throw a ball and be out here and be around the guys and lead". And I do think Stephen makes a fair point about when you're paying what they're paying Dez Bryant, you expect better productivity regardless of who the quarterback is.

Lorenzo Cain signs a 5-year/$80M deal with Milwaukee
Cain returning to Milwaukee is poetic though, as the Royals acquired Cain from the Brewers back in the 2010 Zack Greinke trade. Over parts of five seasons, he has hit.290/.369/.432 with 59 home runs, 293 RBI, 369 runs scored, and 72 stolen bases.

Manziel was incredible as a college quarterback but he famously busted out of the National Football League because of his character concerns, as well as his off-field habits.
