NFL.com analyst Daniel Jeremiah compares Oklahoma redshirt senior QB Baker Mayfield's playing style to Colt McCoy coming out of Texas.
"Both guys were big-time winners in college and I think Mayfield, like McCoy, will have a long NFL career as a solid No. 2 QB," he wrote. Jeremiah also sees some of Johnny Manziel at Texas A&M in Mayfield, but doesn't think that comparison quite encapsulates it because Manziel was a "little more dynamic than Mayfield as both a passer and runner." The analyst loves Mayfield's improvisation and ability to escape the pocket when his first two reads are covered. "He has excellent touch on underneath throws (swings, bubble screens, shallow crossers, etc.) and his deep-ball touch is above average," Jeremiah wrote. "He doesn't have a huge arm, but he flashes the ability to drive the ball." However, Jeremiah says Mayfield "has a long way to go" before becoming an NFL starter because his "accuracy on drive throws is concerning," "his feet get very busy" inside the pocket and he sometimes bypasses easy completions.
