NFL Draft 2018: Winners and losers after Round 1

Lake Travis coach Hank Carter on why Mayfield will succeed

Sure enough, that's exactly what hapened and Goldhammer says he'll live up to his promise. "But these past four years, I was living out my lifelong dream, and I'm proud that I did it on my terms".

The Southeastern North Carolina Browns Backers club had high hopes for the Cleveland Browns as they gathered at the Maria Grill in downtown Wilmington to watch the National Football League draft on Thursday.

The Browns chose Heisman Trophy victor Baker Mayfield as their guy to be the face of the franchise.

Mayfield, who is from Austin, Texas, transferred from Texas Tech to Oklahoma after his freshman season. General Manager John Dorsey has a strong track record with quarterback selections in the draft, as does personal assistant Scot McCloughan, who played a big role in the selection of Mayfield.

Reigning Heisman Trophy victor Baker Mayfield is the newest member of the Cleveland Browns. While his injury certainly played a role, it will be interesting to see if he can contribute in the passing game at the next level, especially given that he'll now share the backfield with an elite pass-catching back.

Head coach Todd Bowles was also looking forward to working with the rookie, who'll have the slight luxury of veteran Josh McCown in front of him on the depth chart. It was the second pick for the Browns in the the round and their fourth overall. Cleveland has started 28 QBs since 1999.

"However, some thought the Browns might be more inclined to take a player like Bradley Chubb". "I want to be the guy who comes in and helps change the culture of the locker room". "And I will make sure over the next decade or so that they will know that they made a mistake". Jackson has already named Taylor as his starter in 2018, and the plan is for Mayfield to develop as a backup. Still it's refreshing and remarkable to think that once upon a time, Mayfield dreamed of a very different draft day and sporting future. "He's a guy that I could sit behind and learn from".

After beating Ohio State at home 31-16, Mayfield attempted to plant an OU flag in the middle of the "O" at midfield as a celebration.
