  2. The fellow comparing Mayfield to Manziel should know better. The two are wholly different cases, and on top of that, it seems clear that the fellow has not looked seriously at the tape on Mayfield, who throws with the best touch, ball placement, and accuracy of anybody in the draft. Mayfield plays within the structure of the offense, throws well on and off platform, takes care of the ball, and has a great football "IQ". He has weaknesses, but is better than the other QBs in the draft. Nor is he an alcoholic. Commentators comparing Mayfield to Manziel ought to be hooted off the stage.

  3. Ask players….there's only one AlphaDog in this draft…one. the guy that gets people to follow and play harder…..gimme the guy that nobody wants to play against.

  4. Mayfield isn't worth the number 1 pick, he's not worth 1st or 2nd round he failed a test given to him by the Chargers his excuse he "didn't have time to study"..hahaha what a joke he's johnny screwup 2.0

  5. Baker is the best QB in the draft!!!!! Why is there all this doubt? Because he grabbed his junk and got tackled by cops while drunk at a frat party? What college kid doesn't get drunk at frat parties.. This is just ridiculous anymore. His numbers dwarf every other QB's, he's an exceptional scrambler, he can make any throw, he's a wizard when it comes to the playbook aspect of the game and all because he's 6'1 he isn't worthy of the number one pick? If Baker was 2-3 inches taller he'd be the second coming of Aaron Rodgers but because he's 6'1 and showed a couple miniscule moments of immaturity at college he's got all this bust potential.. I can't wait for him to prove everybody wrong at the pro level. The kid is special and you'll see that soon enough

  6. To compare baker to Johnny is really stupid. They are not the same person and Johnny’s addiction and behavior ruined him. How can you put them
    In the same boat like that?

  7. Baker played in the Big 12. Throw those great stats out the window. He’s an accurate passer with limited physical ability. Not suited for cold weather cities.

  8. A quarterback who is turnover prone, occasionally inconsistent with accuracy and didn't earn the starting spot until game 4 of last year (All Darnold) cause me to be a bit concerned about his on the field play to be honest

  9. Darnold LED THE COUNTRY IN TURNOVERS playing for powerhouse USC. They may not have had the talent of Bama, but they had top 2-3 in the Pac 12 and he still managed to lead everybody in turnovers.

  10. For the love of god can people stop comparing Lamar to Watson! They’re nowhere near the same player. Lamar relies almost exclusively on athleticism. Watson is a highly intelligent quarterback and reads defenses like a book. Lamar doesn’t do what Watson does.

  11. The fact that there isn’t a clear cut #1 QB this year is why you should get the best overall player in Barkley first and get a QB at 4.

  12. None of the QB's in this draft are perfect but in my opinion Mayfield is the best QB in this draft…If he was 2-3 inches taller he would be the consensus #1 overall pick. He is NOT Johnny Manziel and you cannot teach the intangibles this guy has…Hope my Jets are lucky enough to get him at 3.
