Baker Mayfield talks about playing for Broncos, John Elway

The drill was basic target practice: Baker Mayfield, Josh Allen, Luke Falk and Tanner Lee were tasked with moving over blocks, forward and the backward behind a makeshift line of scrimmage, before tossing the ball to the net.

Former Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield arrived at Senior Bowl practice late on Tuesday.

The only reason I'd take Mayfield first overall is if the Browns honestly believe he's the only available quarterback who actually wants to be there. He noted the change that they made at general manager.

He had flown home to Austin, Texas, to be with his mother, who he said is "not doing too great". "He's on the same team with the guy some people are expecting to go first overall, and if he looks like the best quarterback on that team with Allen there, it'd be tremendous for him".

Heisman Trophy victor Baker Mayfield is impressing scouts early in Mobile, Alabama. "Getting used to that, getting back under center, taking drops and the play-fakes and whatnot", Mayfield said of his experience this week, per ESPN.

"Everybody wants to portray the bad boy, the Johnny Manziel stuff", Mayfield said Tuesday at the Senior Bowl. "I'm there to play football", he said. I'll do anything it takes to win. I love the game of football.

Still, Mayfield will have to prove himself away from the field. Mayfield also drew criticism for planting a flag on the field after a victory over Ohio State and making an obscene gesture toward opponents during a lopsided victory at Kansas. He's been called a "winner" of Days 1 and 2 of practice and there have been a handful of highlights (those tweets posted below). "By the time we get to the draft, we'll have them ranked and go from there". "There were some impressive throws that showcased Allen's big arm, but also some short tosses with way too much velocity that receivers could not hang onto".

With their awful 0-16 season, the Cleveland Browns have once again locked up the No. 1 overall pick in the first round. A couple of the players mentioned are competing here at the Reese's Senior Bowl.

"A guy who's steady", Grier continued. After throwing for 3,203 yards and 28 touchdowns his sophomore season, Allen was limited to just 1,812 yards and 16 touchdowns his junior campaign.

"That gives hope to a lot of Group of Five running backs or a lot of Group of Five players", Penny said.

For his career, he has 14,607 yards with 131 TD passes and 30 interceptions. "I think it's a narrative you guys (in the media) have created".

"I felt I threw a little bit better than yesterday", Allen said. However, he wants to show National Football League scouts who he really is. The "North Team", will be coached by the Denver Broncos' staff. That's what you try to do.

"I always find it amusing, like what would you guys expect?"

Likewise, the Broncos requested that Mayfield be on the North team. "If John Elway asks you to be on [his] team, you don't say no".
