Browns' Baker Mayfield isn't a cookie cutter quarterback

  • John Dorsey gets business done at Cleveland Indians game

Dorsey may not be finished though, as Jamar Taylor's name appeared in a recent column from Cleveland.com's Terry Pluto.

Instead, the former went to the New York Jets as the overall number three pick, while the latter was selected at number seven by the Buffalo Bills.

The Browns used the No. 1 pick on Mayfield last month.

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". The reigning Heisman Trophy victor didn't start the draft process as the number one signal caller on the their board, but there was no doubt in the building by the end of it. But, to say that Taylor is the guy and that's not going to change is just idiotic.

If Mayfield was deserving of the first overall pick in the National Football League draft, perhaps he also deserves to be selected as the first quarterback off the board in your dynasty fantasy rookie drafts.

More news: Could this be the hottest Mayday since records began?

Now, Taylor find himself the starting quarterback of the team with the longest postseason drought (2002). "It is about being a good football player".

"It doesn't matter how you get there, everyone here has the same opportunity", he said.

The only other quarterback in rookie minicamp is Joel Stave, a well-traveled practice squad player. As such, it wouldn't be a surprise to see him starting sooner rather than later. 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".
