Mayfield had been on the outside looking in for most of the draft process, his polarizing antics a cause for concern in drafting him in the first round. But the former Heisman trophy winner has undeniable talent and has done a good job of putting his past behind him in college.
Also rumored to be in the number one pick discussion is USC quarterback Sam Darnold, Wyoming quarterback Josh Allen, Penn State running back Saquon Barkley, and North Carolina State defensive end Bradley Chubb.
