Jackson says Tyrod is the starter

Jackson says Tyrod is the starter

Baker Mayfield's whirlwind introduction to Cleveland included some sage advice from Bernie Kosar at the annual Browns alumni dinner with the rookies on Thursday night and a warm welcome from Browns fans. Over the past three seasons in Buffalo, Taylor started 43 games and played in 44, posting an impressive 51-16 touchdown-interception ratio. After all, even managing two wins as the starting quarterback of the Browns means you have more wins than the last two seasons' worth of Browns quarterbacks combined. As far as common sense goes, you don't draft someone with the No. 1 overall pick to be a backup. I think that the ones that have been through it and have played the game are the ones that I would definitely bounce the most questions off of.

Don't get the idea Mayfield thinks he knows everything, but rather than get mentored by Tom House, a former major league pitcher who has turned tutoring quarterbacks into a lucrative business, Mayfield is leaning on former NFL quarterback Chad Pennington for help.

"I am not going to back off of this and we can keep writing this narrative, Tyrod Taylor is the starting quarterback of this football team".

Being a first-round rookie in Cleveland has its perks. Jackson remembers the number one pick's entry at his pro day at Oklahoma, relaying how Mayfield walked into the building and let out a high-pitched "hee-hee.", to which his teammates in attendance all responded in kind and made their way over to him. "You see that and then you see him up here, how often he's actually here, it's very transparent who he is".

But joining the quarterback-starved fans of Northeast Ohio in paying close attention to Baker Mayfield's career path are an army of National Football League executives, scouts and owners, all of them waiting to see the influence Mayfield's career can potentially have on some decades-old mores of personnel evaluation.

"It taught me patience", Mayfield said. "They brought him and I in because we're both team-oriented guys".

"It doesn't matter how you get there, everyone here has the same opportunity", he said.

One of the best opportunities for a franchise to improve is through the NFL Draft, which occurs every April. "It started at the combine, just talking to him and listening to some of the things he said..." I can only aspire to be like that.
