Baker Mayfield hungry to get Cleveland Browns back to tradition of winning

John Dorsey gets business done at Cleveland Indians game

Fast forward to last week, when the Cleveland Browns selected Mayfield with the No. 1 overall pick in the NFL Draft.

Head coach Hue Jackson alluded to Mayfield's unique personality, in particular his innate leadership skills. Recent examples include the likes of former Texas A&M star quarterback Johnny Manziel and former Baylor University Bears and Baltimore Ravens quarterback Robert Griffin III, both of whom were also Heisman winners. "We're going to have to see how that plays out".

Mayfield and Ward were presented with pre-release editions of the limited-run LeBron Soldier I shoes commemorating the Cavaliers star scoring 25 straight points to vanquish the Detroit Pistons in the 2007 National Basketball Association playoffs.

To do that, Mayfield intends to be himself, which means he'll go at it full throttle.

"The one thing I really love is when you talk to the Oklahoma staff".

The former walk-on quarterback has fought for starting jobs before.

"It's a mentality that you are not going to take "no" for an answer".

Only time will tell, but if these revelations don't convince you that Mayfield is the man to bring glory to Cleveland, then nothing short of seeing it with your own eyes will.

It didn't even faze Mayfield that at least a half-dozen teams had him QB1 on their draft boards.

We all knew Mayfield had that fire and didn't want to sit. He intends to be physically and mentally fit by the time training camp opens in July. However, the Browns are clearly counting on Mayfield being their franchise quarterback of the future. The reigning Heisman Trophy victor didn't start the draft process as the number one signal caller on the their board, but there was no doubt in the building by the end of it. "They've been winning in the past and some of those guys set the tone, so right now, we're trying to get back to that".

"We are going to hammer that until I am good and it feels natural", Mayfield said.

NOTES: The Browns said their trade on Wednesday with Kansas City, swapping tight end Randall Telfer for Chiefs defensive end Dadi Nicolas, has been voided.

The Browns have taken what has been perceived as a big risk, but to them it seems like they believe it'll be a home run pick.
