Patriots told Baker Mayfield they might trade up just to secure meeting?

We're throwing out the 11 p.m. news and going all-in on the draft with Lauren Brill, Jon Doss and Derek Forrest. It never came to fruition and the New York Giants were reportedly not even answering their phones with regards to the No. 2 spot, so could the Patriots really have pulled off a move?

But what if the Browns had taken Barkley instead? Whether or not the Patriots wanted to make the move in part to spite their division rival is unclear, but according to Mills, the Pats nearly leap-frogged them. He throws into double coverage and deep-safety help far too often. "Being at Ohio State, there was pressure all the time there". The Bills used that pick to take Josh Allen out of Wyoming. Each of the four quarterbacks selected in the top 10 of the National Football League draft Thursday night went to a team that already had made arrangements this offseason to have a veteran in place who could, if needed, serve as a temporary caretaker of the starting job. It's a bold move, but he has upside. However the question people had, was what the Cleveland Browns are going to do with first pick of the draft. Fitzpatrick is the most complete defensive back and can play corner or safety. "I mean in the case of Oklahoma, like they have more than one player so like our process is we go through, we evaluate those players, we grade them, we put them in a system, we assign a grade". The odds, no matter how favorable, are still greater than 50-50 that he will not be worth the top pick in the draft.

The Cardinals drafted QB Josh Rosen from UCLA at number 10. After complementing Mayfield and explaining why he had Mayfield as his top pick rather than Sam Darnold, the consensus best quarterback in the class, he launched into a diatribe against Rosen.

This is the second straight year the Browns have picked first. Kirk is a versatile slot receiver who can blow by coverages and make defenders miss once he has the ball. The Patriots ended up using their two first-round picks to get Georgia offensive lineman Isaiah Wynn at No. 23 and Georgia running back Sony Michel at 31. "But he got us back with the flag". He should have a huge year.

The Baltimore Ravens used the final pick of the first round (pick 32) to select dual-threat quarterback Lamar Jackson out of Louisville. Some have underestimated him due to his 5-foot-9-inch frame, but many see his quickness, ability to read routes and his talent in the return game as an upside. They have combined collectively for a quarterback rating of 74.2 over that span.
