That said, the team should have more than enough time to develop Mayfield before he will be truly needed under center.
"What you have to recognize is a lot of those guys that touched the football from the previous year (2016) were from active NFL rosters", Bohl said, referring to receiver Tanner Gentry, tight end Jacob Hollister and running back Brian Hill. "Not just the offense, but the defense". "In college, you may see four or five different schemes on a given Saturday". "Maybe he gets into the late first round".
This is neither a list of the best players in the draft overall, nor guys I consider the best at each position. It's all about accuracy and being able to make smart decisions on the gridiron when it comes to the quarterback in this offensive system. I did him since I did my original top-50 and he'll be in the top-50 when that comes around. Allen has better "physical" traits than the other top QBs.
Former Penn State linebacker Jason Cabinda, who practiced against Barkley every day, says he believes that Barkley has the chance to be an elite running back in the NFL. Two years ago he looked like an elite player, and he fell back a little bit.
At 6-4, Allen is coveted for his arm strength.More news: Royals/Blue Jays postponed due to roof damage

"To me, Baker Mayfield has all those things". It has everything to do with production. "Baker Mayfield to me is off the charts on those areas". "I'm going to come in with my head low and ready to work. I think that's what makes it special". "He could be the Carson Wentz of this draft, but no one really knows", Herbstreit said during a conference call Tuesday.
"After that it's a mixed bag".
But Payton apparently doesn't think too highly of Rosen, Mayfield, and Allen - and maybe Lamar Jackson too, though it's unclear if he would include Jackson with the quarterbacks who will get picked at the beginning of the draft.
Here is what Jeremiah wrote about the Bills selecting Rosen at No. 12. His biggest concern about Rosen is when plays break down, he is not as good at improvising as some others are. "The 5'10", 202-pounder started the first four games of '17 and ran for 428 yards with an average of 7.6 yards per carry before a season-ending ankle surgery. He struggled against good competition during his time at Wyoming, but he really had few weapons to throw to. So that's an area he's going to continue to grow. I could see Chubb putting on that gold jacket.
Josh Allen is a prospect that a lot of the Cleveland fanbase will not like given their history with quarterbacks.
Finally, it's worth noting that nobody - including Payton - actually knows which quarterbacks will become the next Carson Wentz and which quarterbacks will become the next Ryan Leaf. "But he's a hard one for me to personally evaluate because he's coming out of Wyoming in the Mountain West". Despite a awful season in 2017, the Giants have a lot of talented players on the roster. That had a negative impact on him.
