He may not be built like a prototypical NFL quarterback, but Baker Mayfield
Many teams have no problem with Mayfield's character, but one anonymous coach at the combine took exception. He called Mayfield "over the top cocky."
In an appearance on NFL Network tonight, Mayfield responded to those comments the best way he could, with humility.
Calm, cool and collected. That's what you want to see from the quarterback.
The comparisons to Johnny Manziel are unfair, but Mayfield is an edgy player. He plays a position where you need that kind of mentality. The quarterback is seen as the leader of the team and Mayfield has no problem assuming that role.
This is a player who absolutely loves the game of football. Sometimes confidence can be misinterpreted as cocky. There's no doubt Mayfield has some cockiness to him, but that shouldn't be seen as a bad thing.
Don’t think Baker Mayfield is a franchise QB. Love his confidence but I’ve watched a lot of college football & haven’t seen a player like Mayfield succeed. Speaking on/off the field.— CanoDamere (@CanaanCadwell) March 7, 2018
As Mayfield said, it just takes one team out of 32 to give him a shot. Expect that one team to draft him in the first-round come April.
It doesn't look like they'll be disappointed with the product.
