The Browns reportedly are going to take quarterback Sam Darnold with the first pick later this month in the draft, but that’s not stopping them from doing their homework on other QB’s.
One such player is Baker Mayfield, and today NFL.com reports that Mayfield started the first of a two-day visit with the Browns in Berea.
We’re less than a month away from the draft, which means dinner expenses are about to get pricey.
In a draft class stocked with quarterback talent, two of the the presumed top four signal-callers are hitting the road for meetings with teams picking in the top three. Oklahoma’s Baker Mayfield is flying to Cleveland for a two-day visit with the Browns beginning Monday, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported.
Meanwhile, Wyoming quarterback Josh Allen is heading east to meet with the New York Jets early this week, Rapoport reported.
As expected, teams are doing their due diligence with potential first-round selections, hosting an assortment of prospects in the weeks leading up to the draft as they attempt to determine where those players land on their draft boards. It’s a natural and necessary part of the process, and sometimes an essential one that can sway a team one way or another on a specific player. With Cleveland selecting at Nos. 1 and 4 and in need of a quarterback, Mayfield is the first of the quartet to visit GM John Dorsey and the rest of the staff. The other three — Allen, Josh Rosen and Sam Darnold — will meet with the Browns at their Berea, Ohio, facility later this week, per The Plain Dealer’s Mary Kay Cabot.
