Broncos' brass talks about Oklahoma QB Baker Mayfield

He'll never make it in the NFL. "And exactly what I care about is the game: I love it, I'll do anything to win and I'll do anything for whatever team drafts me". "That's all out the window". It wasn't about measuring, I'll measure tomorrow if that's a big deal.

"Now, whoever they bring in here, know what you're getting into, son". And then, like I told Trevor (Siemian) a couple of years ago, when you get that opportunity, you have to earn that respect.

The South, coached Bill O'Brien and the Houston Texans staff, is led by Virginia quarterback Kurt Benkert, Western Kentucky's Mike White, Troy's Brandon Silvers and Kyle Lauletta of FCS Richmond.

"It's an intense environment and they're going to be expected to do a lot of great things and, not only on the field, but off the field and in the locker room", former Broncos quarterback Jake Plummer said on a recent Altitude TV appearance". Adding to the confusion, NFL.com's Tom Pelissero tweeted that Mayfield would be in attendance Saturday but did not know whether he'd play. "Coming out here, I felt I performed pretty well today". "Get outta here. Family before myself always", he tweeted.

Haley out as Steelers offensive coordinator
Quarterbacks coach Randy Fichtner is in line to be the next coordinator, although there was no immediate announcement Wednesday. The Steelers finished the season third in total offense and Roethlisberger had a great second half after a slow start.

It's pretty hard, when you're in the running for it, to avoid the luster of the possibility of being the first-overall selection in the NFL Draft. He had 18.5 sacks and 33.5 tackles for loss the last two seasons at CFU.

"[They want] to see what I'm all about, see how I react to certain things, " Mayfield said after Tuesday's practice at Ladd-Peebles Stadium. A throng of media swarmed him following practice, and he was all the more anticipated after a family matter caused a delay in his arrival.

"That's the difference between college and pro meetings - you want guys to be engaged, " Joseph said.

Baker Mayfield won the Heisman Trophy in 2017 after throwing for 43 touchdown passes with only six interceptions. "If I'm fortunate enough to be in that city, I'm there to play football first". "I love the game of football, there's no doubt about that". "Other than that, we're nothing alike. (I) came down here to play the game and show them that I love playing". A February arrest, him planting the Oklahoma flag at Ohio State's 50-yard line and his infamous crotch grab all helped create that image. After watching Allen in person, I no longer believe that to be the case. I throw the ball down the field probably if not the best, one of the best in the country. He's the type of wide receiver who showed he can get open with his route running, and that trait will make him valuable on an National Football League team. 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.
