Baker Mayfield, who is set to play Saturday in the Senior Bowl, is also attracting the eye of new Cleveland Browns general manager John Dorsey, per Charles Robinson of Yahoo Sports. “A lot of what he is as a player fits with the mentality of [Cleveland Brown’s general manager] John Dorsey,” one source said, per Robinson. “Just his mental makeup as a player, John believes in building around those kinds of guys. … I think he’s a strong candidate [for the top pick] after this week.” Robinson noted a few key reasons why Dorsey would seriously consider Mayfield atop the draft. Among them, he notes accuracy and nuance when it comes to ball placement. Mayfield is extremely accurate and savvy about putting the ball only where his receivers can catch them.
