Sam Darnold uniquely qualifed to back up Eli Manning with Giants

06 March 2018

This year, Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield and UCLA quarterback Josh Rosen have had their attitudes dissected.

If "Rosen is too smart" is the biggest problem he has to contend with after the Combine, he's in good shape. "I thought I performed OK at the Combine, I thought I could have done a little bit better, but I thought I performed to the best of my ability [in other drills]".

"So many people are going to have doubts [as to] what I can do", said Griffin.

"I'm up front and honest, brutally honest", he said. "If you have something to say about that, I have three years of tape you can watch... It takes time. You have to build relationships". "I've always been a team-oriented guy. It's another opportunity to show why I'm a good quarterback and why I think I'm a good quarterback". I don't want them to draft someone they think they're getting and then not get that guy. So I think its gonna be an incredible experience and something I'm looking forward to. "Teammates want you to be you every single day, so that you're that reliable rock that they can count on".

More than a dozen utility companies reported that hundreds of thousands of their customers were affected by the powerful storm . In addition to more widespread snow, winds are not expected to be as strong and there is likely to be less coastal flooding .

AS ADVERTISED: NFL Network reporter Kim Jones had this to say regarding Oklahoma's Baker Mayfield: "He told the media that he doesn't want to settle for being a backup, that he can turn around Cleveland".

The Oklahoma signal-caller and Heisman Trophy victor has never been shy about his self-belief and now he is saying that he believes he could be the right guy to turn around the Cleveland Browns.

With a demeanor that surprised exactly no one who has followed his substantial collegiate career, former Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield addressed the media at the National Football League scouting combine Friday with unflinching confidence.

Battling the narratives is nothing new for Rosen and still his top priority in the weeks between the NFL Combine and the draft. And depending on Denver's acquisitions in free agency, both quarterbacks have legitimate chances to be in orange and blue next season.

Navarro said the White House's mission is "to defend our steel and aluminum industries so that they survive". He said $9 billion in USA tariffs would be a fraction of one percent of the United States economy.

Sure, Darnold will throw before the draft at his now more anticipated Pro Day back at Southern California on March 21, but he didn't do himself any favors Saturday.

"I'm the most accurate quarterback in this draft for sure", said Mayfield, last year's runaway Heisman victor. While only so much can be gained from watching players throw routes on air, with no defenders on the field, it's a live look at their arm strength and arm talent in a high-pressure environment. "I've never once said that I've made it". Maybe some think he's cocky, but Mayfield has the requisite attitude to hold up to the criticism.

Browns general manager John Dorsey and head coach Hue Jackson haven't rung an alarm bell over the turnovers, but like every other team, they are investigating where the problem is. "But I think that coaches can really see what I care about". A lot of times you get tied up in the emotions of the situation and where he is. If you're a 1-2 and run guy, and you, say, throw the ball 40 times a game - NFL, 30 times a game - you're giving yourself 70-80 opportunities to get the ball down the field. "They just need the one guy at quarterback to make the difference".

"Believe me, I'm not done swinging and missing", said Elway, who owns the fifth pick in this year's draft. "So you can ask anybody on that Oklahoma staff, that's what I bring to the table and it helps us out".

Both of the Reds' top-four finishes since have come in seasons when they didn't have the added demands of continental action. They will want to rest some players but will look to get the job done early in this game and give no space for complacency.

"It's disrespectful, it's not the example I want to set, it's not the legacy I want to leave at OU, so I truly do apologize", Mayfield said. "His issues were more bad decisions and bad throws in games, but today, in that format, Tanner Lee looked great".
