Hard Knocks coming to Cleveland is as best as it gets for Baker Mayfield  1 Week ago

Source:   USA Today  

There’s nothing worse than being expected to resurrect the woeful franchise that is the Cleveland Browns.

Unless, of course, you're expected to do that while also being reality TV fodder.

The first overall pick has been described as cocky and polarizing, and he heard the comparisons to fellow quarterback and Texas native Johnny Manziel even before the Browns drafted him. He talks trash and makes no apologies for it, and he embraces his brashness.

Folks in his new home state are still salty about him planting the Oklahoma flag on the Ohio State logo after the Sooners toppled the Buckeyes at The Horseshoe. He was briefly benched as punishment for making a lewd gesture at the Kansas sideline.

But Mayfield swears that his play will quiet the noise. That the success that won him the Heisman Trophy will ultimately determine how he’s perceived.

“I care about winning. I care about doing things the right way,” Mayfield said after the draft. “I just want to be judged for who I am.”

There’s nothing wrong with that, and it’s the same attitude almost any other highly touted quarterback would have. You don’t get to be the No. 1 pick by thinking you make a pretty good No. 2. But Mayfield’s competitiveness and his desire to prove himself will surely lead to some drama.

No doubt he’ll rub a veteran the wrong way, whether it’s Taylor, his offensive line or linebacker Christian Kirksey. He’ll show someone up, get under somebody’s skin and, eventually, there will be payback.
