He told Sky Sports' Neil Reynolds on Draft Review: "They decided five weeks ago that barring a major upset or someone trading up with a huge offer, they were taking Baker Mayfield". "We did a lot of research". The more he delved into Mayfield though, the more he liked him and it became apparent that the Oklahoma standout had that one fabled intangible quality that all the great ones have; the "it' factor". "You see that and then you see him up here, how often he's actually here, it's very transparent who he is". "I don't think being out here and having a guy, if there's anything that we feel that might hurt a guy, I'm going to make sure I take him out". "That is the way it should be because I can play out of the 'gun".

Cleveland could have had both, so even if Mayfield proves Cleveland right it'll be hard not to wonder what could have been if the Browns had played this differently.
"The one thing I really love is when you talk to the Oklahoma staff".
