Baker Mayfield is widely believed to be the most likely player selected first overall during the NFL draft tonight.
Plenty of people around the league are all in on the Cleveland Browns snatching up the former Oklahoma gunslinger.

Browns continue to keep the decision on their No. 1 pick a secret, but there is a mounting belief from HCs and GMs around the league that Cleveland will take Baker Mayfield.

NFC GM: “From everything I hear its Baker Mayfield No. 1 for the Browns.”
Just remember: everyone lies during the draft but Im starting to believe this.

-Pass on Carson Wentz
-Accumulate picks for two more years
-Use the No. 1 pick on an undersized QB
New front office, same Browns! https://t.co/fIGbFo8IPl

Since weve all been having fun with these the last two weeks…
If I had to guess tonight…
1. Browns – Baker Mayfield
2. Giants – Sam Darnold
3. Jets – Josh Allen
4. Browns – Bradley Chubb
5. Bills – trade up with Broncos, Josh Rosen

What a wild world were living in. Everybody thought that Josh Allen would without question be the first overall player taken as little as 24 hours ago. That was supposed to be locked in. Now, Mayfield is the man leading the way.
This is also so Cleveland that it hurts. They drafted Manziel, and it went terrible. Youd think that the Browns would avoid the one quarterback compared to Johnny Football all the time. Its painful watching Cleveland just continuing to shoot themselves over and over again.
Im not saying Cleveland and Mayfield will be terrible, but its going to be laughable if this turns into another Manziel disaster. Well find out tonight just how real all of this is!
