It’s just one season – nicely, technically 12 and a half video games, with one remaining – however I can admit that I used to be incorrect about Baker Mayfield’s probabilities within the NFL. He’s been far, much better than I assumed he’d be. I consider he’s the Rookie of the Yr for altering the tradition in Cleveland being a very powerful issue within the Browns going from Zero-16 to doubtlessly ending above .500
I referred to as Mayfield bitcoin main as much as the NFL Draft. I didn’t perceive the hype about his NFL prospects whereas recognizing he was a unbelievable school participant. It didn’t make sense man may go from mid-round choose at first of his senior yr at Oklahoma to #1 choose within the draft.
Mayfield has been unimaginable for the Browns, and that’s past his 64% completion share and 24 TDs. He’s not simply checking down, both – his 7.54 YPA is forward of Aaron Rodgers (7.46), Kirk Cousins (7.27) and Andrew Luck (7.13). His offensive line has exceeded expectations (third!) and his talent place gamers are younger (rookie Nick Chubb; 2nd yr tight finish David Njoku).
At 23, Mayfield is older than all the opposite rookies, and with three half of school seasons underneath his belt, has much more expertise. However the NFL has modified, and quickly. Quarterback dimension issues much less now than ever earlier than in NFL historical past. And if can do that once more subsequent yr, the Browns ought to be a playoff group.
