ESPN's Adam Schefter was told Oklahoma QB Baker Mayfield is "definitely" in the running to be the No. 1 overall pick.
The Browns are keeping their cards close to the vest, so it is tough to tell what they will ultimately do with the first pick. They have been strongly linked with USC QB Sam Darnold, Wyoming QB Josh Allen, and now Mayfield, who Browns consultant Scot McCloughan has banged the drum for since last year. Even if Mayfield is not taken No. 1, he is expected to come off the board in the first five picks, with the Jets strong suitors at No. 3. Apr 24 - 8:38 AM

ESPN New York's Rich Cimini expects the Jets to decide between Baker Mayfield and Josh Rosen at the No. 3 overall pick.

Conventional pre-draft wisdom is that the Jets are zeroed in on Mayfield, but Cimini passes along "some support" for Rosen inside the organization. The Jets likely have similar grades on Mayfield, Rosen, and Sam Darnold, explaining why they were comfortable moving up to No. 3 in the draft. They'll simply take whichever quarterback falls. With Darnold expected to be drafted at No. 1 and Saquon Barkley favored to go to the Giants at No. 2, Gang Green's decision will likely come down to Mayfield-versus-Rosen.

According to SI's Peter King, the Cardinals "don't like Baker Mayfield, they love him."

In fact, King has the Cardinals trading up from No. 15 to No. 5 to draft Mayfield in the spot currently owned by Denver. It would be a steep price for Arizona to pay, almost certainly including next year's first-round pick. To date, Mayfield has been the favorite to go to the Jets at No. 3 overall. King has the Jets passing on Mayfield in favor of UCLA QB Josh Rosen.

According to ESPN's Rich Cimini, "some insiders believe" the Jets have narrowed their choices to Oklahoma QB Baker Mayfield and UCLA QB Josh Rosen with the third overall pick.

The Jets traded up to No. 3 with the sole intent of drafting a franchise quarterback and it looks like their choice will come down to Mayfield or Rosen. Of course, that's assuming USC QB Sam Darnold, who the Browns are considering with the first pick, doesn't slip to No. 3. There's been a lot of Mayfield buzz in New York lately, though Rosen remains a consideration. Even if he's available, it looks like the Jets will pass on Wyoming QB Josh Allen.

Draft Analyst’s Tony Pauline reports Oklahoma QB Baker Mayfield being drafted by the Jets is a "done deal."

The Jets are higher on Mayfield than Josh Rosen. They also like Sam Darnold, but Mayfield looks to be their pick if Darnold doesn't fall. Mayfield has "won over" GM Mike Maccagnan in the pre-draft process and fits the West Coast scheme of OC Jeremy Bates. The most pro-ready quarterback in this year's class, Mayfield would push Teddy Bridgewater and Josh McCown to be the Jets' Week 1 starter.

Broncos GM John Elway said Oklahoma QB Baker Mayfield has "overcome the size issue."

Size concerns have dogged Mayfield throughout the draft process though Elway doesn't see it as a major stumbling block. Elway has mostly targeted taller quarterbacks since assuming the role of GM—he drafted Brock Osweiler and Paxton Lynch, who are both 6'7"—though he departed from that philosophy by signing Case Keenum (6'1") this offseason. Mayfield visited the Broncos earlier this week and was coached by Denver's staff in the Senior Bowl in January. Denver hasn't committed to taking a quarterback at No. 5, but if Mayfield is still available then, it wouldn't be a surprise if the Broncos made him their pick.
Apr 19 - 3:49 PM

ESPN New York's Rich Cimini believes the Jets are targeting Baker Mayfield and Sam Darnold with the No. 3 pick.

The Jets haven't had much interest in Josh Allen and look to have Mayfield slightly ahead of Josh Rosen. With Allen the top pick favorite, Darnold could slide to the Jets if the Giants pivot to Saquon Barkley. Mayfield has been rising over the last week and isn't expected to fall out of the top-five picks.
Apr 18 - 6:01 PM

Oklahoma QB Baker Mayfield will visit the Cardinals.

It will be Mayfield's last visit before the draft. Mayfield has had to address size and immaturity concerns throughout the draft process but now seems destined to be a top-five pick. The Cardinals are well aware that Sam Bradford isn't a long-term fix and will likely target a quarterback early in the draft. They'll have to trade up to have any shot at Mayfield.
Apr 17 - 4:59 PM

NFL Draft Scout's Rob Rang reports Oklahoma QB Baker Mayfield "remains in the conversation" to be drafted in the top-five picks.

Mayfield has been trending down since the Combine, with Josh Allen and Sam Darnold the consensus top quarterbacks. Teams may be pivoting to Mayfield, the Heisman winner and most accurate passer in this year's class. The Jets have been heavily linked to Mayfield with the No. 3 overall pick.
Apr 14 - 3:20 PM

Oklahoma QB Baker Mayfield will visit the Giants on Sunday and Monday.

After that, he'll work out for the Jets at their team facility before moving on to visits with the Bills, Browns, Cardinals and Dolphins. The Jets traded up for the sole purpose of drafting a franchise signal-caller and it wouldn't be a surprise if the Giants, who hold the No. 2 pick, took a quarterback as well. Mayfield, Josh Allen, Sam Darnold and Josh Rosen are all projected as top-10 picks, though it's anyone guess what order they'll be drafted in.
Apr 8 - 10:54 AM

An "NFC quarterbacks coach" told MMQB's Albert Breer Oklahoma QB Baker Mayfield is "the most accurate signal-caller he’s ever evaluated coming out of college."

"He doesn’t miss throws," the coach continued. Mayfield has been knocked for his size (6-foot-1) and the offense he ran at Oklahoma, but he is exceptionally accurate and a natural playmaker. He seems destined to be a top-10 selection.

CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reports the Patriots' acquisition of the No. 23 overall pick from the Rams in exchange for Brandin Cooks "was all about" trying to trade up for a quarterback in this month's draft.

A member of the Patriots' organization told La Canfora he would "certainly not" be surprised if the Cooks trade was made to acquire more ammo to move up in the draft. La Canfora admitted his "total hunch" is the Patriots may be eyeing Baker Mayfield due to his mobility and top-notch accuracy. Coach Bill Belichick realizes he needs to find Tom Brady's successor, and this QB-deep draft offers one of the best chances to find that guy. However, there will be a ton of competition to move up in the draft. New England has two firsts and two seconds.

The Miami Herald reports the Dolphins expect to miss out on the draft's top quarterbacks.

The Dolphins pick at No. 11 but believe each of Sam Darnold, Josh Rosen, Josh Allen and Baker Mayfield will be off the board by then. The Dolphins have been strongly connected to Mayfield, but his stock seems to have solidified into that of a top-10 pick. The Dolphins are no strangers to bold moves but it seems they are not willing to trade up at the moment.
Mar 27 - 5:21 PM

Oklahoma QB Baker Mayfield will meet with Dolphins officials for dinner next Tuesday in Norman (OK), then work out for the Fins privately after his Pro Day.

The Dolphins' interest in Mayfield hasn't been a secret, and likely also isn't a smokescreen considering their penchant for organizational leaks in recent years. The Fins' intentions are all too often public knowledge. The Dolphins hold the No. 11 overall pick in the draft, and Mayfield probably stands a 50-50 chance or worse of lasting that long. Miami might have to trade up to land him.
Mar 9 - 2:42 PM

MMQB's Peter King reports the Dolphins are "looking hard at quarterbacks."

King writes "several people" he spoke with at the Combine believe it is "likely" the Dolphins select a quarterback in the first round -- they currently own the No. 11 overall pick. If they decide to go with a quarterback, Oklahoma QB Baker Mayfield seems to be near the top of their list. Miami will dine with Mayfield prior to his March 14 Pro Day.
