Wouldn't take Baker with the first pick but if I wanted a QB and was in the top 10 I would be looking at him over Allen.I still prefer him to Darnold in some ways.
Mayfield may actually have the highest floor. For him not to have the lowest ceiling would require exceptional commitment and football IQ, but many now have been impressed with his ability to digest and even synthesize a playbook. He's even been called a "football savant" by several, so mis-direction season or not that high-achiever in the mental game may be there. He's also physically durable if short. I'd be optimistic.
I want no part of a gamble on Allen. With all the sacrifices of tanking, dumping talent, passing on talent, it feels like cutting the cards for 401ks.
I'd be quite pleased, and not surprised in the least if that's seen as a goal in Berea.I don't see them sliding Bitonio to tackle. As I recall, he played RT for 3 years and LT for a year in college, but he's exclusively played guard in the NFL. I suspect they're hoping for one of the better tackles to be available early in the second. I could also see them using some of their assets to move back up into the late first and take someone like Kolton Miller or Connor Williams. My hope is that one of those 2 makes it to the second round and the Browns draft goes: Darnold, Chubb, Williams, Michel.
