Baker Mayfield: Sam Darnold’s a good guy and I hope for the best for him
Before the Browns put quarterback Baker Mayfield # 1 overall in 2018, many thought Cleveland would make Sam Darnold the design's top pick.
Of course, Darnold went 3rd on the Jets this year and hasn't won much since then. Before beating the Rams last week, Darnold looked like he was a safe bet to be replaced by Clemson's Trevor Lawrence with the top pick in the 2021 draft.
With Jacksonville now in the driver's seat for number 1 overall, this is no longer a given. But when Mayfield takes on the Jets this weekend, he feels off the board for the second QB in his draft class.
"I'm not in his shoes, so no, I'm not there for the everyday things. But I know the responsibilities and pressures he's under," Mayfield said on Wednesday via video from Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com. "You feel for him. They want it to work. You don't want malevolent, it's bad karma. Sam is a good guy and I hope for the best for him."
Mayfield made a comeback beating Darnold and the Jets on his NFL debut as a rookie and beating New York last year when Darnold raced with Mono.
