Schefter is reporting this morning that the general feeling among the NFL coaches and GMs is that Mayfield is the pick.
I'm more concerned about the rumor that the trade down from #4 is in play, particularly if the Giants pass on Barkley and take Chubb. I'm not against it, because several mocks that forecasted the trade down have the Browns dealing with Buffalo for the Bills' 12th and 22nd picks. The players slotted in those positions are Minkah Fitzpatrick and Mike McGlinchey, which ain't bad, at all. Plus, Buffalo reportedly would surrender its #1 pick next year. But if Chubb us still there at #4 and they still trade down, I think that would be a mistake.Schefter is reporting this morning that the general feeling among the NFL coaches and GMs is that Mayfield is the pick.
Me, too. I am praying that the Schefter report was a product of a smokecreen floated by the Browns. Maybe, since the Jets apparently are all-in on Mayfield, the Browns are hoping to entice the Jets to trade up two spots to get their guy. The Giants will probably go Barkley and that would still leave the Browns Darnold and Chubb and likely the Jets' top pick next year.Yeah, I would be in shock if they don't pick Darnold or Rosen. Browns gonna Brown.
What worries me is that there is a guy the Browns brought in to help with their draft. I can't think of his name, but he is a huge Mayfield advocate and he obviously has Dorsey's ear and his trust. But does he have THAT much influence on Dorsey?All reports seem to be that it's between Allen & Mayfield. Could be a total smokescreen, but it feels like Darnold is no longer in the conversation.
When is the last time there was this little clue what would happen in the top 5? You could tell me nearly any combination of Allen/Mayfield/Darnold/Rosen/Barkley/Chubb/Nelson go to any combination of teams and I wouldn't be surprised.
I’d want to know who is making the decision. If it’s Dorsey, ok. However, if this is Haslem butting in, like with Manziel, I’d be worried.What worries me is that there is a guy the Browns brought in to help with their draft.

If they pick Mayfield, I'll be disappointed as hell, but I have to trust Dorsey and Company. But, frankly, as a Browns fan, I've had my fill of Big 12 quarterbacks for awhile.
I refuse to put stock in any of the ESPN rumors that are being put out there to try to get more viewers tonight, but that doesn't mean I won't be surprised if the Browns eff up what should be an incredibly simple first round for themYeah, I would be in shock if they don't pick Darnold or Rosen. Browns gonna Brown.
It really is that simple. I just can’t wrap my head around the logic of drafting Mayfield at 1, when Rosen and Darnold are both available.It's so easy. Maybe too easy
#1 - Darnold or Rosen
#4 - Chubb or Barkley
If you can't decide between the two, flip a coin. It's likely that either Chubb or Barkley will be gone at 4, so that makes it even easier, just take the guy who is left.
You have a stronger stomach than me being able to watch that.This press conference with Dorsey and Hue is seriously like a comedy show. How in the hell can anyone think Hue could succeed as a coach of a flag football team ? Does Dorsey even know the record Hue has as coach ???
