The Heisman Trophy victor gets knocked because of his height (an even 6 foot) - and he hasn't had a whole lot of experience working under center - but if he can go out in Saturday's game and do what he did in Thursday's practice, then I don't think it would be unfair to put him in the discussion as a top pick candidate, too.
The Broncos - a franchise in which its greatest success has come with elite quarterbacks - have long touted their "Plan A".
They're apparently going to get there chance. The energy that they brought, it's a good upgrade to the staff. "People want to find things wrong with the top football players". You can't ask me to do anything else.
Baker Mayfield just wanted to know if his mom was OK. While Washington fans cringe thinking of trading up for another quarterback, the package to move up to get Mayfield will not almost be as costly as it was in 2012 when the Redskins drafted Robert Griffin III. Both Rosen and Darnold are more physically gifted, but neither head into the draft with a flawless grade. That game, Mayfield picked apart Auburn's defense, completing 19-of-28 passes for 296 yards, two touchdowns and a quarterback rating of 180.2 as he set the NCAA single-season passing efficiency mark (196.4) - a record he broke again this season. Obviously the guys are a little bigger and faster and stronger now but you've got to love it.

The Merseysiders are also now 14 league games unbeaten after a 4-3 win over league leaders Manchester City last time out. We have a great squad but obviously there are not many players like Christian.
"I think we're still in the process".
"It's a tough situation obviously to come in as a rookie and expect to be flawless right away", he admitted, also acknowledging that he knows he has "a lot of flaws as a quarterback".
"He just told me, you're stepping into a locker room with 30-year-old guys, if you're not mentally ready, it's going to eat you alive and I just took that into account", Allen said of that conversation after the 2016 season.
Allen was inconsistent with his accuracy the first two days. "I actually haven't got a ball caught on me yet (this week), so knock on wood". If someone takes him, such as the Giants at No. 2 overall, he could replace the 37-year old Manning in the future. "I love being around my teammates and I love leading them, having the responsibility". Despite what many (including potentially some in Denver) think, 6-foot-7 quarterbacks have rarely done well in the National Football League and aren't the prototype size.
"They get to know the players", Elway said. Comparisons to Manziel have dogged Mayfield for a number of reasons - both are short, both have made a few questionable decisions, and both were college stars in large part because of an uncanny knack for improvisation and turning broken plays into big plays.
