Browns' rookie top-five pick Denzel Ward already sidelined to injury

"From the start of this college football season to the end of the season, I had Darnold No. 1 and Baker No. 2, [Josh] Rosen No. 3, [Lamar] Jackson No. 4 and [Josh] Allen after that", he told Browns fans at the Hall of Fame Luncheon Club, as reported by the Canton Repository. Even with all of the surrounding concerns, Mayfield has a lot of potential, and if he develops like he's supposed to, he could enjoy a lot of success in the NFL. Some errant throws bounced off the turf. We have the incumbent starter and bridge player Tyrod Taylor, the dependable backup Drew Stanton, and the future of the franchise in Baker Mayfield.

Being a first-round rookie in Cleveland has its perks.

However, Cleveland fans have reasons to be optimistic as they also landed Ohio State cornerback Denzel Ward as fourth overall pick, Nevada guard Austin Corbett and Georgia running-back Nick Chubb at number 33 and 35 respectively in the National Football League draft.

"But he's very brash and we've seen some of the things that can rub people the wrong way". "We'll work through that, and he's going to work at it like you can see him right now staying after working at that". Mayfield says he's fine with that.

The defensive back out of Ohio State is expected to be a starter on defense and his welcome into the NFL won't be a cake-walk; he'll face Antonio Brown of the Steelers, Michael Thomas of the New Orleans Saints and Terrelle Pryor of the New York Jets in his first three games in the league.

"Then comes the part where you meet them off the field", Highsmith said. "So when I'm sitting there on the couch (for the draft), the thoughts running through my head as I start looking around at everybody in the room, a bunch of different people who have been there at different stages of my life". "What he did in my last two years with the two Big 12 championships, the leadership, the toughness and everything else, I don't know that I've ever had anyone like him". More teams are taking to the fact that it's possible and those guys are winners, so why not? "We just want to win".

The 28-year-old Taylor was among a series of moves made by Cleveland in the offseason, acquired in a trade with the Buffalo Bills in March.
