With 302 yards, Mayfield was one of only two quarterbacks to top 300 yards against UT's secondary in 2017.

Sam Darnold, formerly of USC, was not the first pick in this year's National Football League draft - that honor went to Baker Mayfield, formerly of Oklahoma, now a quarterback with the Cleveland Browns.

The Bills traded up to No. 7 to take Wyoming quarterback Josh Allen, a 6-foot-5, strong-armed passer.

Sam Darnold, meet the NFL's most passionate fan base - one famished for almost 50 years, starved for a franchise quarterback to lead the Jets to a title.

After Mayfield went to Cleveland, the New York Jets chosen USC's Sam Darnold with the No. three decide.

Another trade put the Arizona Cardinals at No10, in position to select UCLA quarterback Josh Rosen.

Aikman addressed a subject that was not delved into as deeply as it might have been by the analyst teams: As good as Barkley might be, should the Giants have taken a quarterback anyway, given Eli Manning's advanced age of 37? "And obviously his accuracy - we really like that about him". The last Washington defensive tackle to go No. 12 overall?

Even though Cowboys Hall of Famers Roger Staubach and Troy Aikman and current star tight end Jason Witten accompanied Goodell onto the stage at opening of the draft, loud booing filled the stadium.

Darnold, pegged by many to be the top pick for months, went third to the other NY team. No pressure...you are just expected to be the best Jets' quarterback since that guy named Joe Namath.

Like Mayfield, Darnold would possibly sit behind a veteran, Josh McCown. The Jets, who made no secret of their intentions to draft a QB when they traded up from No. 6 to 3, were thrilled to get USC's Sam Darnold, considered by many evaluators to be the best quarterback in this year's class.

If Dorsey was bothered by Mayfield's Fayetteville, Arkansas, arrest or his crotch-grab at Kansas, it had no effect on the Browns' willingness to bet $22 million on Mayfield's viability. "If you take the right approach, the right attitude, you can get a chance to improve the right areas". The former Heisman Trophy winning Louisville quarterback was selected 32nd overall after finishing the 2017 season with a 90.3 overall grade.

National champion Alabama had four first-rounders: safety Minkah Fitzpatrick to Miami, DT Da'Ron Payne to Washington, linebacker Rashaan Evans to Tennessee, and wide receiver Calvin Ridley to Atlanta.
