Todd McShay believes the Jets will select Baker Mayfield 3rd overall

It also continued the Browns' vicious cycle of failure, as Trent Richardson and Brandon Weeden proved not to be the saviors Cleveland had hoped.

A deep crop of quarterbacks could make the seventh or eighth passer selected a tremendously valuable asset. The Buffalo Bills, Arizona Cardinals and New England Patriots could also use their draft capital to push toward the top five. There aren't that many General Managers as savvy as Belichick when it comes to the NFL Draft.

Josh Allen to Cleveland has been a very popular selection in a lot of mock drafts lately. They need to add more bodies and can't package away any more picks without affecting their two-deep.

In 2012, the Browns used the No. 3 pick to draft Alabama back Trent Richardson.

"You go play minor league baseball and you're on buses and around other guys trying to chasing dreams all day", Herbstreit said. Neither would be on the team's roster for the 2014 season.

"I agree with the executive I spoke to last week who said Barkley is a better player than Ezekiel Elliott".

The Jets are picking third overall on April 26 and are expected to draft one of the quarterbacks.


Saquon Barkley is back on the cover of Sports Illustrated, but this time it's all about him. The opportunity to get a relative cheap fifth-year option on a QB, especially if they are successful, is a smart idea. Ngata was a fan favorite, but at 34 years old, may not have much left in the tank.

Kurt Warner said that he expects the Browns to select Josh Allen with the number one overall pick.

Twenty years ago today, the Oakland Raiders selected the reigning Heisman Trophy victor, University of MI cornerback Charles Woodson with the No. 4 overall pick. Both looked like slam dunks as 2012 came to a close. However, Manning would end up steering the Giants to two Super Bowl victories, earned four trips to the Pro Bowl, and has passed for over 50,000 yards in his 14-year career. Factor in his toughness, his football IQ and his burning desire to win and, well, talk about a great fit for a team that hasn't had a franchise quarterback in four decades.

Fortunately, there seems to be some clarity on where Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield is going to end up.

UW lost its leading rusher, its three leading receivers and starting center off the 2016 team.

One of Tom Brady's favorite slot targets - Danny Amendola, who had 61 catches for 659 yards and two touchdowns in 2017 - signed a free-agent deal with the Miami Dolphins.

With Josh McCown and Teddy Bridgewater ahead of him on the depth chart, Mayfield can sit for a year and develop. I'd say the second round's a little high for me.
