According to a report Tuesday night from Mary Cay Cabot of Cleveland.com, the Browns will meet with Baker Mayfield during Senior Bowl week and the Oklahoma quarterback is "in the discussion" to be the first overall pick in the upcoming draft.

Two years ago, North Dakota State Bison quarterback Carson Wentz and Mississippi State Bulldogs quarterback Dak Prescott used the Senior Bowl to become franchise quarterbacks in the NFC East.

"I'll be honest with you, I think it's a narrative you guys [in the media] have created, " he said. "I think my biggest question for him is whether or not he has the mobility to play in a zone scheme, where he's going to be asked to move". So we were really pleased to get him in our lineup.

When you lead off as the first overall pick in ESPN's inaugural mock draft of 2018, people want to hear what you have to say.

The thing about the Senior Bowl is that it is chock full of draft sleepers who have spent four years or more in college to prepare for the league as much as they can. "(I) came down here to play the game and show them that I love playing". "Everybody wants to portray the bad boy, the Johnny Manziel stuff, but I love the game of football". Don't believe it. Here is a list of names from each of the past 10 Senior Bowls who jumped up boards after participating.

His big goal for the week, he said: "Prove that I can belong".

There are two more practices for each squad scheduled for this week.

Mayfield said he would be willing to be measured during the remainder of the week at the Senior Bowl if the league's personnel executives wanted him to.

Miami coach Adam Gase didn't attend the Senior Bowl past year, but with quarterback as a possibility with the No. 11 pick, he was on hand to see Mayfield and Wyoming's Josh Allen, among others.

The Heisman Trophy victor missed the first day of Senior Bowl activities Monday and did not arrive in Mobile until after weigh-ins Tuesday because of a family emergency in his hometown of Austin, Texas. "If I'm a better fit somewhere else, then I belong at that other place". Allen said he's looking forward to slinging passes all week next to the more accomplished but less physically blessed Mayfield.

"[She's] slowly getting better", he added. One particular throw to the left sideline intended for Penn State tight end Mike Gesicki showed the wind-up and average RPMs that should concern scouts when projecting Falk to the National Football League - with Hawaii safety Trayvon Henderson making a terrific break on the ball, almost intercepting the throw.

So keep that comment in mind when you read what Allen said about his mindset if the Browns were to pass on him.
