Cons

  • Needs to improve his decision making on and off the field

Overall

Baker Mayfield is one of the most exciting players to watch at the college level. A lot of his traits should transition nicely to the NFL. His ability to escape pressure and make accurate throws downfield make him tough to defend. Moving forward Mayfield has a ton of upside and should only get better. He is currently looking to be a late first round pick.
