Every year around National Football League draft time, we start labeling prospects with phrases like "sure thing" and "can't miss". How you do that, to me, that's why Baker Mayfield - I'm a little bit on an island there (in terms of ranking him No. 1) - but all the things I just described are Baker Mayfield.
Most believe that one of them will go No. 1 overall to the Browns when the first round begins on April 26. This would only happen if both the Cleveland Browns and the New York Jets decide they do not want Rosen or Darnold, arguably the top two quarterback prospects in the NFL Draft.
And on Allen: "A big thrower, but is accuracy going to be an issue for him?" "I think somebody might have dipped into the late part of the first round, and worst-case scenario he would have been a second-round pick".
Said one executive, "That's all amusing when you're not getting 50 people fired if you miss on a quarterback".
Wrote Kadar, "If the Browns are down to choosing between Chubb and Penn State running back Saquon Barkley here, all you need to do is look at is the tendencies of Browns General Manager John Dorsey". The former Heisman Trophy victor has a big arm and is the most athletic player at the position. When I watch quarterbacks, it's decision making, and it's accuracy."Baker Mayfield, to me, is off the charts in all those areas".

Granted, the Redskins don't own a third-round pick so Smith might not be a viable target unless they trade back in a different round, acquiring more assets as they go. "Reminds me of a young Drew Brees when he was coming out of Purdue".
"It's a matter of who might be that one this year", he said.
Herbstreit said Darnold "may have the most upside" of any of the quarterbacks in the draft if you're looking five to six years into the future. Going to a system that prizes precision over arm-strength could make him successful at the next level.
"Sam Darnold is a 6'3", 220 pound prototypical quarterback who can make throws that most quarterbacks can't make, and can lay the ball in like a feather, while somehow, at the same time, fit the ball between two defenders.
Wyoming quarterback Josh Allen (17) warms up prior to the start of an NCAA college football game in Laramie, Wyo., Saturday, Sept. 23, 2017. He could be the Carson Wentz of this draft. He lost a lot of his better players after the 2016 season. Especially when they up against some of the bigger schools, I think they were overmatched and it really had a negative impact on him.
