Baker Mayfield talks about playing for Broncos, John Elway

Senior Bowl quarterback primer highlighted by Baker Mayfield

Senior Bowl quarterback primer highlighted by Baker Mayfield

Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield will be participating in this week's Senior Bowl practices.

Mayfield is widely regarded as a potential first-round pick and is in Mobile alongside Josh Allen, who has been projected by some as the potential No. 1 overall pick.

Carrington's freshman year was the season Heisman Trophy-winner Marcus Mariota and Co., led the Ducks to the National Championship, only to fall to the Ohio State Buckeyes; however, Carrington was an important piece of that offense, eclipsing 700 receiving yards that season. It's a ideal storm, really.

Mayfield haters were quick to point out that this "chip" is more closely akin to a serious insecurity about himself as a player. In the next game, against West Virginia, Mayfield, a senior, was stripped of being a captain and benched for two series as punishment.

Though it's unclear if Mayfield will play in the Senior Bowl on Saturday - "we'll see", was all he promised - he said he hopes to show the Broncos and other National Football League scouts in attendance over the next few days who he really is. I'll do anything that it takes to win.

The maturity level might not be there, but it conflicts with reports that Mayfield is an unbelievable leader and his teammates love to go to battle for him. "I have three years of game film for people to watch if they want to see how I handle games". "But I think you get a guy like that, depending on ... you never know how that's going to play out". "But I love the game of football, there's no doubt about that".

"Love the game. There's just something about it".

"It's an honor", Mayfield said.

Baker Mayfield is a headcase who likes to party-the second coming of Johnny Manziel. "Beyond that, I really don't know the answer".

There will still be critics, because Mayfield is an electric personality who happens to be a lightning rod for criticism and controversy. The top-30 picks in the draft are set in stone, for now, though trades always seem to impact the first round. Mayfield fired back in his direction.

But Mayfield has been nothing but apologetic and contrite about his actions-two words that are not in Manziel's vocabulary. NFL Draft analysts Mel Kiper Jr. and Todd McShay both project Mayfield as a top-15 pick. His upside is through the roof and his arm talent is unmatched.

Of course, Mayfield will have to do more than talk about how he's simply just a passionate competitor. "I think they can really make a mark if they can actually hold up and cover some of these big-time receivers".

The Oklahoma City Oklahoman reported on Thursday that Mayfield told reporters he might not play in the annual college all-star game because of a family situation. "I like getting north and south", he said.
