Mayfield looks good, but Taylor is still Browns' starting QB, says Jackson

Football fans all over the world were stunned last Thursday when the Browns named Oklahoma quarterback and 2017 Heisman Trophy victor Baker Mayfield as their number-one pick.

Tyrod Taylor is the team's presumptive opening-week starter against Pittsburgh, and while Mayfield intends to compete for the job in training camp, he won't allow personal ambition to get in the way of team goals.

Sam Darnold of Southern Cal and Josh Allen of Wyoming, chosen third by the Jets and seventh by the Bills respectively last week, were coached up in their draft preparation by Jordan Palmer, a former National Football League quarterback with precious little game experience. Over the past three seasons in Buffalo, Taylor started 43 games and played in 44, posting an impressive 51-16 touchdown-interception ratio.

In a league that's always prioritized the quarterback, every team that followed the Falcons in the first round took positions other than quarterback. "That is the way it should be because I can play out of the 'gun".

"He said the same things about when you get (to the NFL), go to work. I truly believe that". That's why he's here.




"He definitely seems like a very passionate coach so he reminds me a little bit like coach [Kerry] Coombs so I'm definitely excited to be working with him", said Ward. It was a good first day, but he's got a ways to go. So when you get a guy like that that helps out a locker room in just the best way possible, he's a grinder. "I think about how they deserve a team that's winning, a team they can rally behind and that's what they'll do no matter what". When you get used to somebody new, we've got to make sure we're not having to worry about that.

But Mayfield's a pro now, he claims more mature from his mistakes, and he's got a clean slate and a new set of priorities.

"I'm not anxious about that, " he said. However, Taylor is still with the Browns, and he has proven to be a capable starter in the NFL.

The Browns returned at pick No 4 and again made a slightly surprising move, opting for Ohio State cornerback Denzel Wardto strengthen an area of weakness rather than take NC State defensive end Bradley Chubb - who fell to the Denver Broncos with the fifth overall pick.
