NFL analyst Bucky Brooks compared Oklahoma QB Baker Mayfield to Case Keenum.
A year ago, this would not have been a positive comparison. Fast forward to 2018, and it may not be the most ringing endorsement, but it has some validity. " I know that comparison will draw some raised eyebrows from Mayfield supporters, but I believe their physical dimensions (Mayfield measured 6-0 3/8, 216 pounds last month at the Senior Bowl; Keenum measured 6-0 1/2, 208 pounds at Houston's Pro Day when he was a prospect in 2012), collegiate production (Mayfield finished with 12,292 passing yards and a 119:21 TD-INT ratio at Oklahoma; Keenum amassed 19,217 passing yards and posted a 155:46 TD-INT ratio as a Cougar) and playing style are very similar," Brooks writes. He expects the 2017 Heisman Trophy winner to go in the first round, but doesn't see him as an elite quarterback prospect. Brooks mentions the Giants, Jets and Saints as potential fits.

Rotoworld's Thor Nystrom writes that Oklahoma QB Baker Mayfield's bulked-up supporting cast with the Sooners shouldn't be discounted when it comes to his draft stock.

We've heard the "poor supporting cast" argument for Wyoming QB Josh Allen time and time again. Mayfield is on the complete other end of that spectrum. Notes Nystrom, "Over the past few years, Mayfield enjoyed one of the nation’s best offensive lines, one of the nation’s best sets of skill talent, and one of the nation’s best offensive coaches." He additionally points out that the Heisman winner played in a defensively loose Big 12, which routinely allowed him opportunity to put his best foot forward. While Mayfield has gradually come on as a candidate to be drafted within the first 10 picks, Nystrom believes there's far more uncertainty with him as a prospect than the general consensus would have you believe. The analyst goes so far as to write that he would not use a first-round pick on the Sooners standout.

In his first mock draft of the evaluating season, NFL Media's Charley Casserly projected the New York Jets to select Oklahoma QB Baker Mayfield with the No. 6 pick.

Casserly is in lockstep with NFL Media colleague Bucky Brooks, who likewise pegged Mayfield to the Jets with the sixth pick in his most recent mock draft. This is far, far too rich for our blood, though we do view Mayfield as close to a lock for the first round given the buzz surrounding the Heisman winner early in the evaluating season. All told, Casserly has three quarterbacks flying off the board within the first six picks, as he also mocks Sam Darnold to the Browns at No. 1 and Josh Rosen to the Giants at No. 2. Mock drafts released at this stage only shine so much light given that we have yet to even hit the NFL Scouting Combine.

In a poll of 20 NFL hopefuls at the Senior Bowl last month, Bill Belichick was tabbed as the coach players most wanted to play for.

Belichick received four votes in the poll, followed by Raiders HC Jon Gruden, Saints HC Sean Payton and Steelers HC Mike Tomlin with three votes a-piece. None of this is particularly surprising, as those four coaches are among the most high-profile in the NFL (even despite the fact that Gruden has not coached in a decade). We do raise an eyebrow at the fact that Rams HC Sean McVay -- whose system is incredibly friendly for offensive prospects -- received just one vote, though some of that can probably be attributed to the fact that he's just one year into his career as a head coach.

PFF's Sam Monson believes Oklahoma's Baker Mayfield is the clear top QB "and it isn’t particularly close to the second guy."

"There is no quarterback that can come close to the level of dominance we have seen from Mayfield over his college career," Monson writes. Mayfield certainly created plenty of momentum at the start of the season and carried it throughout 2017, culminating in a great Senior Bowl week. No. 1 is absolutely in play, as is a selection outside of the top 10. Hopefully, the quarterback rankings become a bit more clear after the NFL Combine.

Three days after the Super Bowl the Browns requested to schedule a private visit with Oklahoma QB Baker Mayfield, according to the MMQB's Robert Klemko.

Depending on who you ask, the Browns either declined or were not given the opportunity to coach Mayfield at the Senior Bowl. Mayfield's name has been up traction with the team, however, with the link of Scot McCloughan, who the Browns are using as a consultant. We still firmly believe the Browns use the No. 1 overall pick on a quarterback rather than No. 4, but either way Mayfield is in play.

NFL.com Draft Analyst Chad Reuter projects the Cardinals to take Oklahoma QB Baker Mayfield with the 15th pick in his latest mock draft.

Mayfield's most common landing spots right now in mock drafts are the Dolphins and Cardinals. In this iteration, the 2017 Heisman winner ends up with in Arizona in the middle of the first. "I won't be surprised if a team trades ahead of the Cardinals to grab Mayfield," writes Reuter, "who should be a strong leader at the next level." The quarterback watch is already intriguing, and we're still two-plus months away from the draft.

Browns beat writer Mary Kay Cabot says "word circulated" during the Senior Bowl that former personnel executive Scot McCloughan is "talking up" Oklahoma QB Baker Mayfield to Browns GM John Dorsey.

In October, McCloughan called Mayfield the top quarterback in the class, even bringing up comparisons to Brett Favre, a passer McCloughan spent time with in Green Bay. The Browns hold the No. 1 and No. 4 overall picks in the draft and have brought in respected evaluator like Alonzo Highsmith and Eliot Wolf. The odds on the team selecting a quarterback with the first pick are high. It was mentioned that McCloughan is working as a consultant with the Browns, but a follow up noted he is still running his independent group, sharing evaluations for a price.

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline projects the Dolphins to take Oklahoma QB Baker Mayfield with the 11th pick in his latest mock draft.

The hashtag worked. If you don't get that reference, Mayfield sent an instagram message to Dolphins' wideout Kenny Stills asking him to #GetMeToMiami. Miami does have QB Ryan Tannehill under contract and coming back from a torn ACL, but as Pauline writes: "It’s time to end the Ryan Tannehill experiment. Mayfield has a lot of risk to his game, but his personality is desperately needed by the Dolphins." We likely will see plenty of mocks having quarterbacks going to Miami over the next few months.

Oklahoma QB Baker Mayfield said that he would love to be drafted by the New Orleans Saints.

"To be able to learn under (Brees) for however long he plays, I’d love that (and) to get a chance to be in New Orleans, a good franchise," Mayfield said, adding that he's a big fan of HC Sean Payton and the schemes run in New Orleans. Saints Hall-of-Famer to-be Drew Brees is 39 years old and it's logical that the team would begin to look toward the future. The biggest stumbling block between a New Orleans marriage with Mayfield is that the Saints do not draft until pick No. 27. Mayfield will almost certainly be off the board by that point in time.

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline listed Oklahoma QB Baker Mayfield as the "winner" of the quarterback who rose his stock the most at the Senior Bowl last week.

Richmond's Kyle Lauletta ranks second to Mayfield. The 2017 Heisman Trophy winner didn't play much in the game, but the practices were what scouts were there to see, and most reports there were very positive. "He showed he could handle a pro offense and throw with good fundamentals and anticipation working under center rather than in the shotgun. Mayfield went through his progressions nicely, even doing so in drills against air to solidify the habit, and developed better chemistry with his receivers...," Pauline said. It still appears likely that Mayfield goes somewhere in the middle of the first-round this spring.

Oklahoma QB Baker Mayfield completed 3-of-7 passes for 9 yards for the North in a 45-16 loss to the South on Saturday in the Reese's Senior Bowl.

Mayfield didn't play much in this one, which was what was expected. His completions were of the check-down variety, and he missed on a touchdown throw by not giving his receiver a chance to make the play in the back of the end zone. The game doesn't nearly as much in practices, and fortunately for Mayfield, most of the reports were positive for the Heisman winner. At this point, it'd be a surprise if he wasn't a mid-first round selection.

Oklahoma QB Baker Mayfield is expected to play in Saturday's Senior Bowl.

Per ESPN's Coley Harvey, Mayfield will likely only play for one series before calling it a day. The feeling among evaluators, according to Bleacher Report's Matt Miller, is that they're pleased with the fact that the 6-foot-2, 216-pound Mayfield opted to come to Mobile at all. It was a good decision. He's turned in a respectable practice week and has done nothing to deflate his stock as a potential first-round selection for the spring.
Jan 27 - 1:12 PM

Bleacher Report's Matt Miller relays that multiple evaluators he's spoken with do not care if Oklahoma QB Baker Mayfield plays in Saturday's Senior Bowl.

"We've seen him play in 25 games the last two seasons, what's an all-star game going to change?" one NFL head coach asked Miller hypothetically. The analyst passes along that the general vibe he got from his contacts was that they were simply pleased with the fact that Mayfield came to the Senior Bowl at all. We're in complete agreement, here. By all accounts, the 6-foot-2, 216-pounder has performed well on the whole in Mobile, both on the field and in terms of his composure in what's always something of an odd setting. One little Mayfield gem from the week -- he turned down an interview with the Chicago Bears, who drafted Mitch Trubisky last spring, essentially asking the team why they were even bothering.

Optimum Scouting's Eric Galko wrote that Oklahoma QB Baker Mayfield "looks like a computer" in his assessment of reads.

Galko passes along that Mayfield looked "completely comfortable in the pocket with his progressions" during Thursday's practice. The analyst adds that the 6-foot, 216-pound Heisman winner has been crisp in his footwork and deadly accurate when throwing to the right. There have been no surprise skeletons in how he's handled practice work in Mobile. He's currently undecided as to whether he'll play in the Senior Bowl itself, but that matters far less than the way he's been handling his reps. In addition to his on-field success, he's also been a gravitational force in the locker room -- Mayfield has the personality and demeanor to win over teammates and it's shown even in this manufactured setting.
