NFL Gambling: Browns considering Baker Mayfield as the first pick

04.24.2018     09:39 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
The Cleveland Browns are almost assuredly going to take quarterback with the first pick of Thursday's draft. The favorite is currently USC's Sam Darnold who is currently -210 at 5Dimes. But a report came out today that Oklahoma's Baker Mayfield was also on the Browns' radar. Mayfield is priced at +550.

 "The only thing I care about is, do guys win?" Dorsey said. "Does he have accuracy? Does he have a strong arm? Can he throw the ball in the red zone in tight windows? Can he drive the ball? At the end of the game, does he win? That's what I look for."

If Browns general manager John Dorsey is telling the truth, they may in fact draft Mayfield over Darnold. Check out the stats...

Does he win? (Record as starter)
Mayfield: 39-9, .812
Darnold: 21-6, .777

Does he have accuracy? (Career completion %)
Mayfield: 68.5%
Darnod: 64.9%

Does he have a strong arm (Draft combine velocity)
Mayfield: 59 (left), 60 (right) (2nd to Wyoming's Josh Allen)
Darnold: Did not throw

Can he throw the ball in the red zone? (Career completion % in red zone)
Mayfield: 64.5%
Darnold: 59.0%

At the end of the game, does he win? (4th quarter/OT QB Rating)
Mayfield: 159.4
Darnold: 183.9
