Baker Mayfield's agent claims Patriots were willing to trade up to No

Commissioner Roger Goodell speaks at the podium after the Cleveland Browns selected Oklahoma's Baker Mayfield as their pick during the first round of the NFL football draft Thursday

Prized rookies came off the board early and often on draft night.

And although he may be Cleveland's quarterback of the future, the present belongs to Tyrod Taylor, who was acquired during the offseason in a trade from Buffalo. The most important position on the field should be given the most care and patience. The rest of the round was very exciting, as linebacker Tremaine Edmunds and safety Derwin James went at 16 and 17 falling because of all the quarterbacks that went. The Jets roster is stacked with young talent on the Defensive side of the ball to go along with a much improved offense under head coach Todd Bowles.

Check out our quickfire wrap of the 2018 NFL Draft as trades, shocks and quarterbacks made the headlines at AT&T Stadium in Dallas. Despite both Josh Allen and Josh Rosen still available at 4, King reported that only one team was willing to offer a first-round pick in order to move up to 4 and get a quarterback.

Allen went next, with the Bills selecting him No. 7.

Manning, Rodgers and Roethlisberger are certain Hall of Famers, Rivers is a seven-time Pro Bowler who could be a candidate for Canton, and McNabb, taken one pick after Tim Couch in 1999, was a six-time Pro Bowl choice.

Mayfield did enough to persuade the Browns to take him, but when you have people comparing him to Johnny Manziel and the same people comparing Darnold to Luck, you have to start to wonder if they have once again messed up their quarterback selection. There's other players out there. "We thought, 'That's going to be a heck of a move, to get up that high from where they are.' And of course he wasn't available so we never knew if that was a reality or not".

"I think what they're trying to do with their organization, with their franchise is awesome", Darnold said.

"It's been a long journey, a lot of work to get here". On our way through everything, you couldn't tell me Darnold wasn't the best.

Jackson did allow for the possibility of Mayfield to push the issue by the time the regular season starts. Darnold's competition consists of McCown, who is respected but has been a backup for most of his career, and Bridgewater, who has not demonstrated whether he can make a successful return from the serious leg injury that ended his tenure as the Minnesota Vikings' starter.

The Bills now have six picks in the first three rounds, so they have the ammunition to move up, but will they find a trade partner? The Cardinals needed to find a long-term quarterback solution and believe they won in Rosen.
