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".

Penn State surprises Ohio State, earns Big Ten tourney semifinal
Whether it's the Big Ten Tournament or the NCAA's, you need great guard play and right now, MI is getting that from Rahkman. Future NBA millionaire Miles Bridges was held to 17 points on 7-of-18 shooting. "We take everything personal", Poole said.

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.

Two Minnesota legislators urge Trump to act on DACA
Their work permits have already begun expiring and are expected to expire at an accelerated pace this year and next. DACA is the immigration plan that gives protections to children brought to the USA illegally by their parents.

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".

How much snow will you get when the next storm hits?
Riley's path gave the Friday storm an unusually strong cyclone that whipped winds through the northeast with hurricane force. Most of the mid-Atlantic will only see rain, but New York City and cities north of it will see higher accumulations of snow.

"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".
