Draft Insider Tony Pauline passes along word that some believe Oklahoma QB Baker Mayfield being drafted by the Jets is a "done deal."
Pauline has been on this path for a long time, and we believe it. The Jets traded up for the No. 3 pick early in the process. Perhaps they have a clear target in mind, and it would make sense if it is Mayfield as he fits the Jets' offense extremely well. We expect this to be a consensus opinion by the time the draft rolls around. Apr 19 - 10:57 AM

Oklahoma QB Baker Mayfield visited the Arizona Cardinals on Wednesday.

The Cardinals entered this offseason with no quarterbacks on their roster and have since signed oft-injured Sam Bradford to be their starter. With Arizona clearly needing a long-term starter at quarterback their interest in Mayfield is unsurprising. Mayfield is currently projected to go within the top six picks so the Cardinals would likely have to move up from pick 15 in order to draft him. Given their current draft capital, trading up to Cleveland, Denver, or Indianapolis at pick four, five, or six would make the most sense.

Pro Football Focus's Steve Palazzolo believes that the narrative that had easy throws to complete at Oklahoma is true.

As Palazzolo mentions, the Oklahoma offense is set up to give their quarterbacks easy-to-complete throws, and Mayfield completed those passes. A lot. He had the highest percentage of completely open throws of any quarterback Pro Football Focus scouted. "However, this should not be the end of the analysis," writes Palazzolo. "Our data has shown the the most stable measure of quarterback accuracy is the ability to hit open throws, and Mayfield is the best in the class in this regard, especially when throwing the ball down the field." Palazzolo also notes that Mayfield was the most accurate in tight-window throws, so even if the above narrative is true, it doesn't speak to Mayfield's ability to throw.
Apr 17 - 11:04 PM Draft Analyst Baker Mayfield projects Oklahoma QB Baker Mayfield to go third overall to the New York Jets in his latest mock draft.

USC's Sam Darnold goes first overall to the Browns, and Penn State RB Saquon Barkley goes second to the Giants. We've seen quarterbacks linked to the Jets in several mock drafts -- it's certainly the reason why they traded up from pick six to pick three while giving up several high picks -- but Mayfield isn't generally the name associated. He's seen his stock rise substantially over the last week, however, and at this point, it'd be an upset if he didn't go in the top five.

NFL Media senior analyst Gil Brandt ranks Oklahoma QB Baker Mayfield as the fourth best player in the 2018 draft class.

Penn State RB Saquon Barkley ranks at the top, and the next three players are quarterbacks in UCLA's Josh Rosen, USC's Sam Darnold and Mayfield. Wyoming QB Josh Allen ranks seventh. Mayfield continues to see his stock rise as we go forward, and could go in the top five selections. "Mayfield is a Drew Brees-lookalike in terms of height, speed and accuracy. He had a few bad moments off the field, but he's not a bad person," writes Brandt. "He's a sharp player with the arm strength needed for success -- Mayfield will compete, work hard and be a long-term starting QB in the NFL."

Oklahoma QB Baker Mayfield is taking an official predraft visit to the Denver Broncos on Monday, with a visit to the Arizona Cardinals to follow.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport offers these two notes. The Broncos have long been tied to Mayfield. Flash back to the Senior Bowl in January, and it was Denver (coaching one sideline) which asked him to specifically be added to their roster of players. They also sent a sizable contingent to Oklahoma's pro day. Even with these connections, this is far from a guaranteed marriage of team and player. There are some draft pundits who believe that Denver is not going to be targeting a quarterback at all, while there are others who see him landing with the Jets a little higher up the board at No. 3. In a recent roundtable of five Rotoworld NFL/Draft analysts, all five pegged Mayfield as the most pro-ready quarterback in this class outside of Josh Rosen.

The MMQB's Robert Klemko stated he is "putting my money" on Oklahoma QB Baker Mayfield landing with the Jets.

Klemko is deep into a multi-part series covering Mayfield's time at Oklahoma and his draft process. Right now there is no one closer to Mayfield's team and his features have included great details about Mayfield's experience over the last month. As we all know, the Jets traded up to the third overall pick weeks before the draft. It is impossible for them to know exactly who will be on the board, but Mayfield could be the target.

Draft Wire's Luke Easterling projects the Patriots to trade up to the seventh pick with the Buccaneers to select Oklahoma QB Baker Mayfield in his four-round mock draft.

If this were to happen, we predict the internet to break. The Patriots certainly have the draft capital to make a move like this, and with Tom Brady on the other side of 40/no quarterback of the future on the roster, acquiring someone like Mayfield makes an awful lot of sense on paper. It also means ignoring some of the other holes on the roster to do so. But, as Easterling writes: "Bill Belichick is used to dealing with strong personalities and getting the best on-field results out of them, and Mayfield has all the makings of a franchise quarterback." This would be absolutely fascinating.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport said that in the New York Jets organization, there's "a lot of love" for Oklahoma QB Baker Mayfield.

Mayfield is currently out on a predraft visit to the Jets. Gang Green has been tied to the Heisman Trophy winner in rumor at various times during this offseason, so Rap Sheet's report comes as no real surprise. Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline wrote earlier this month that he's spoken with a "good number" of NFL insiders who see the Jets potentially rolling the dice on Mayfield at No. 3 overall if Sam Darnold is not an option. Pauline, himself, is not a fan of Mayfield at such a lofty slot, especially if either Josh Rosen or Josh Allen is available when time comes to make the selection.
Apr 9 - 6:23 PM

An NFC QB coach said that Oklahoma QB Baker Mayfield "doesn't miss throws."

That quarterbacks coach told MMQB's Albert Breer that Mayfield is the most accurate signal-caller he's ever evaluated. CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora speculated earlier this month that the Patriots -- who own picks No. 23 and 31 -- could be a potential player for Mayfield, though that would almost certainly require some moving and shaking. Many are projecting the Heisman winner a top-10 selection later this month, with some even viewing him as a potential top-five pick.

According to CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora, the Patriots are "firmly" in the first round QB market.

After trading Brandin Cooks, the Patriots now possess the No. 23 and No. 31 selections. "Total hunch here, but I'm thinking Baker Mayfield could be the guy Belichick targets," La Canfora writes, citing interest in Tim Tebow, Jimmy Garoppolo and Jacoby Brissett. The team is absolutely in need of a long-term option at quarterback. It's clear they loved Garoppolo, but contractually could not make it work. A trade into the top five is not possible, but if a quarterback drops things could get interesting. We still think a quarterback in round two is more likely.

Apr 4 - 10:46 AM

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline relays that a "good number of league insiders" believe the New York Jets would use the No. 3 pick on Oklahoma QB Baker Mayfield if USC QB Sam Darnold is off the board.

Pauline stresses that this is just a feeling from the league insiders he has spoken with, rather than something that is definitively going to happen. Should it happen, though, the analyst believes it would be a "colossal" mistake by Gang Green. Pauline would much prefer either Josh Rosen or Josh Allen in that No. 3 spot. We're of a similar mindset, especially given the capital that the Jets surrendered to move up from No. 6. If Mayfield is indeed their target, it's not a stretch to say that he may well have been available without their trading up at all.

Oklahoma QB Baker Mayfield is taking a two-day visit to the Cleveland Browns this week.

Hat tip to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport for the news on Mayfield's little extended visit to Cleveland. While we don't envision the Browns selecting the spirited Oklahoma signal-caller with either the first or fourth pick later this month, the team is doing its due diligence nonetheless. Bleacher Report's Matt Miller projected Mayfield to the Broncos at No. 5 in a mock draft released last week. That's a player-team marriage that we've seen bandied about by several draft prognosticators during the evaluating season.
Apr 2 - 2:58 PM

Bleacher Report's Matt Miller projects the Broncos to take Oklahoma QB Baker Mayfield with the fifth pick in his updated mock draft.

He'd be the third quarterback off the board in this situation; with Sam Darnold going first to the Browns and Josh Allen going third to the Jets ahead of him, respectively. Most mocks have not had Denver addressing the quarterback situation after the Case Keenum signing, but when you keep in mind Keenum's history prior to 2017 and that he was signed to just a two-year deal, it makes sense for Denver to draft a potential franchise signal-caller like Mayfield. They'll be one of the most fascinating teams to watch come April 26.
Mar 26 - 3:18 PM

The Dolphins are putting Oklahoma QB Baker Mayfield through a private workout on Wednesday, according to ESPN's Chris Mortensen.

The connection between Mayfield and the Dolphins has been a common one. The Dolphins have publicly stated Ryan Tannehill is their quarterback, but this workout and other buzz from beat writers suggest that is not the case. The Dolphins are just another team that could make a major move up in the draft.
