    Again, I am okay with Lamar at #15 but if he somehow is gone, Joshua Jackson is my second choice. Take Lauletta in Round 2.

    I just don`t see how Mayfield can be the #1 pick.As several ex-QBs said -your franchise QB has to check all the boxes.Mayfield does not .He is borderline short.If he goes #1 then the Browns are gambling that he becomes the next Drew Brees .Those seem like long odds.Can he overcome his height issue and transfer his game to the NFL? I have some doubts.Just seems like a very risky gamble to take when Darnold is available.

    I am praying the Browns take Mayfield. That means the Cardinals have a shot at Darnold and Rosen if they decide to move up. Those are the only two QBs that are worth taking a chance on early in the 1st round IMO.

    Otherwise I hope they stay at 15 and take WR Calvin Ridley, a LB, or a CB. Whoever they have ranked the highest on their board.

    well if it goes down that way then the first three picks will be

    Mayfield
    Darnold
    Rosen

    I hope that is not accurate.

    The only surprise pick at #1 would be Josh Rosen.

    NFL is half marketing/$$$ and half performance. Mayield is Box Office magic. He will sell tickets. I know the Brown fanbase is loyal ( to a fault ), but he could inject a ray of hope to that disaster franchise.

    I'm hearing that it's Mayfield. Also that there's a pro-Rosen buzz in the Jets war room.

    I also note that NFLN/FOX has mini-studio'd the Cardinal war room. (Even in the best of years, they don't usually do that). This suggests that the Cards know they're going to make news and have tipped off NFLN. I'm guessing an intermediate-level move up - maybe to #10 or #12 in order to secure Rosen, Allen or possibly Jackson. I'm guessing the decision to move would take place during the draft if the right group of guys were available at #10 or #12.

    Because of his brashness, Mayfield is going to suffer from sustained comparisons to Manziel by going to CLE.

    I have a hard time believing the pick won't be Darnold

    Should be a fun draft
