With the No. 1 selection, the Browns have selected Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield.
Baker Mayfield is on his phone in live Instagram post, lots of emotion. He said “yes sir let’s go” at one point— Mary Kay Cabot (@MaryKayCabot) April 27, 2018
It's been an insane offseason in the NFL. Free agents were getting monster deals left and right. Insane trades went down that no one could have ever seen coming. And the draft talk was so muddled, no one could get a real clue of what was going on. As you can imagine, Mayfield kicking it off atop the draft is only fitting.
Mayfield is the reigning Heisman Trophy winner after leading the nation in completion percentage and finishi second in yards per pass. It was truly an incredible career for the Sooner legend, who led Oklahoma to the College Football Playoff this year despite falling to the Georgia Bulldogs in the semifinal.
Either way, there's no denying his talent. Just look at the guy!
The Browns can still do some damage considering they have the No. 4 pick, so they're not done yet.
What a start to the 2018 NFL Draft!
