  • OU's Mayfield Top Pick in NFL Draft

Baker Mayfield, Sam Darnold, Josh Allen, and Josh Rosen all went in the top-10.

The Cleveland Browns on Thursday chose Ohio State corner Denzel Ward with the fourth overall pick of the National Football League draft.

The Browns, New York Giants and New York Jets have the draft's first three picks and are all in need of franchise quarterbacks.

Mayfield won the Heisman Trophy during his final season at Oklahoma and led the Sooners to the College Football Playoff. But the 23-year-old is undersized (he's just over 6-foot), and there are questions about his character following a 2017 arrest and some on-field antics which included him grabbing his crotch in a game at Kansas. It took much, much later than usual this year, but reports are continuing to spread that Cleveland will go with the Oklahoma star with their first pick.

During hastily organized and televised negotiations , Pashinyan said that the protesters' main demand was Sargsyan's resignation. On April 24, Prime Minister of the Republic of Armenia Karen Karapetyan met with Artsakh Republic President Bako Sahakyan.

The Bills are banking on Allen displaying rapid improvement after completing just 56.2 per cent of his passes against less than elite competition at Wyoming for their move to be vindicated.

Will Rosen end up being the best of the quarterbacks taken tonight?

Apparently, though, Browns general manager John Dorsey was captivated by Mayfield's combination of passing accuracy, ability to extend plays and knack for inspiring teammates. The last Washington defensive tackle to go No. 12 overall? He joins a workforce that went 0-16 in 2017 and will begin the season behind newly acquired Tyrod Taylor. If I'm the backup, I'm going to be the best backup I can be and do that. Dorsey said of evaluating quarterbacks. "He is a man that has earned every little thing he has ever had since highschool to school and now up right here".

As much as Giants' general manager Dave Gettleman says that he believes Eli Manning has a few good years left, it's hard to believe NY would pass on Darnold if he's still on the board.

The confident and charismatic Mayfield did not attend the draft at the Dallas Cowboys' stadium in Arlington, Texas, choosing instead to watch it on TV at his family home in Austin, Texas. Darnold immediately inherits the best kind of veteran quarterback there is in Josh McCown, who will be invaluable to him as a mentor. The Jets had traded with Indianapolis, going from sixth to third with the expressed intent to find a passer. "I definitely think it will".

Cleveland also had the fourth pick in the draft and chose to take cornerback Denzel Ward of Ohio State. Many NFL personnel people believe Rosen is the most ready to play next season, and incumbent Carson Palmer retired.

National champion Alabama had four first-rounders: safety Minkah Fitzpatrick to Miami, DT Da'Ron Payne to Washington, linebacker Rashaan Evans to Tennessee, and wide receiver Calvin Ridley to Atlanta.
