Baker Mayfield is now down in Mobile, Ala. for the Senior Bowl.

But Mayfield wants NFL teams to learn about his character this week at the Senior Bowl instead of simply buying into the perception that he's similar to Manziel, who partied his way out of the league two seasons after the Browns drafted him 22nd overall out of Texas A&M in 2014.

Led by Vance Joseph and the Denver Broncos coaching staff, the North squad is commanding the early headlines.

In his first practice with the South roster at the 2018 Senior Bowl in Mobile, AL, Washington put on a clinic. Heisman Trophy victor Baker Mayfield will be participating in the game. The physical traits, playmaking ability and athleticism are some of the things that can easily be observed just by watching game film. "There are a lot of questions that we need to have answered when that time comes". Both have their risks (Mayfield's size and whether his productivity will transfer to the NFL, Allen because, well, the production in college doesn't match the hype and scout drool marks). Donald was one of the top prospects in the game, a guy whom evaluators and scouts kept a close eye on.

One of his primary goals is to "relax" on the field while displaying a heightened maturity level.

The 6-foot-2, 240-pound edge rusher finished with 75 tackles, 9.5 sacks and 13 pass deflections in 2017.

"(I want to) prove that I can be the best quarterback in this class, " Mayfield said after practice on Wednesday.

Griffin (right) established himself as one of the nation's top defensive players while overcoming plenty of adversity in the process.

28 of the Auburn Tigers reacts in the first half against the UCF Knights during the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl at Mercedes-Benz Stadium on January 1, 2018 in Atlanta, Georgia. "He's a linebacker that will benefit from a good, strong defensive line to keep him uncovered".

While he was under the spotlight in college, the attention Mayfield will be receiving as April's draft approaches will be even more intense.

Manzel, who last played in 2015, made more off-the-field news than on it. Mayfield may be heading in a similar direction. And one for another player in case they sign free-agent Kirk Cousins which in turn would cancel the thought of drafting Allen, Mayfield or any other quarterback with that No. 5 pick.

He said the most important thing this week is to show "the type of guy I am". The Houston Texans were selected to coach the South. Bill O'Brien over four seasons with the Texans has a head coaching record of 31-33.

"Yeah, at that position there's a lot of intangibles you've got to have, " Elway said. He has a chance to be kind of a poor man's Haason Reddick in this year's draft. He's large (6-3, 330) and has a reputation for being physical at the point of attack. They spoke with several prospects: Running back Ito Smith from Southern Mississippi, safety Quin Blanding from Virginia, running back Rashaad Penny from San Diego State, and quarterback Mike White from Western Kentucky.
