    Yep, happens all the time. There is a reason only QBs (mainly) and RBs win the award. It is a flawed litmus test.

    While I don't think Lamar is clearly the best player in college football over Baker, he's without a doubt the most talented and electric player. I'm taking Baker 9/10 times to be the QB on my team. I just like what he brings to the table from the mental aspect of the game and his leadership more than I do from Lamar. That's not to say Lamar isn't a leader, I just think Baker is a better one.

    I love watching Mayfield. Sadly I probably will have to hate Him in the nfl. With both Patriots and Steelers needing a young qb for the future. I can see of them taking him at the end of the 1st round.

    Depending on how the playoff go, I'm not sure Mayfield falls that far.

    I don't think he will go top 10 unless Darnold, and Rosen stay. Most of the other teams in the middle aren't exactly looking for qbs. So I can see him falling to end of 1st. Hardly ever if ever seen a 6 foot qb drafted in the top 10 or even top 20.

    Latest mock I've seen has him as the 4th QB taken, going in the early-mid 2nd round. I think that's probably about right.

    I'm thinking somewhere in the 20-25 range. I don't think the Steelers or Pats will be picking in that range.

    No way he slides out of the first, unless he flops in the playoffs. Dude is just a gamer. Most of the time I can’t stand the cocky/brash guys, but I love how he plays the game.

    He seems to just love the game which is why I think he succeeds in the NFL

    That's exactly why I don't like the Johnny Manziel comparisons. Manziel didn't love football, he loved what football did for him. Baker LOVES playing football.
