QB is such a hit or miss position with limited options, and in my opinion, Mayfield wont be elite in the NFL. Especially if he goes to Cleveland.
definitely not first overall - they'll go with Darnold or Rosen first
add Jackson to the mix and Mayfield might last until #20

Rudolph is intriguing and might be available

Mayfield? He's a top 5 LOL! Not going to happen. So we give up 4-5 picks for a QB? When has that ever worked out? Maybe like 1% of the time. Pray we do not go full "Browns Mode".

I would not trade up for him but if he is there I would jump all over it. How much sh@# talking would be going on with him and coach Payton together?

Now is not the time to draft a replacement for Drew. All of the players from the last two drafts will come due for a second contract at around the same time. I read an interesting article about spreading the cap around that was informative about making sure that all contracts don't come due at the same time.
We need to worry about filling the weak spots on the roster with our draft picks while Drew is still going to the Pro Bowl.

Beast,

Initially I agree with you 100%, then I put on my GM hat & looked at his off the field "issues" ... disorderly conduct, public intoxication, resisting arrest & the crotch grab incident that prompted his HC to strip his Captainship (I know it's not a word) in his final home game. To become the face of a franchise, those become valid concerns to a owner.

Feelings of those incidents will vary from GM to GM & it may potentially scare many away ... even dropping him to the lower half of the 1st round.

He's a gamer no doubt and I'm excited to see where he lands come April.

Come on. Those same issues never affected Johnny Manz... ... wait, never mind.
