Allen's tweets from high school provide controversy on day of National Football League draft

They could potentially swing one of their first-round picks to get a few more picks in the middle rounds.

Our draft special starts at 7 p.m.

And thanks to online sports retailers Fanatics and FansEdge, you can now get yourself the newest Mayfield 2018 Draft night rookie jersey and other Browns gear, including hats.

The idea that Schefter is putting forth is that there was a team lower in the draft who found this information, and chose to time its release to tank Allen's draft stock at the last second to give that team a shot at snagging him. Sam Darnold and Josh Allen were once considered the two possible options.

None of this is certain - if the Browns are taking Mayfield with their No. 1 overall pick, they have yet to notify the Heisman Trophy victor from Oklahoma or his representatives.

On Wednesday night, Mayfield and his family took a picture that replicated Favre's draft-night photo.


The NFL Draft rumor mill - filled with sources and expert analysts - has plotted Baker Mayfield as a possible No. 1 overall pick by the Cleveland Browns in the 2018 draft. This year the Browns draft at No. 1 and No. 4 overall. Mayfield is a projected top-three pick, with some believing he may be the first player to hear his name called. The Browns pick first and fourth. "That's one of the main jobs of a GM is to find a franchise quarterback, it's a quarterback league, I'll say it every single time".

The 2018 NFL Draft has finally arrived with promises of many quarterbacks being scooped up in the first round, if not the top 10.

The Jets taking Rosen over Darnold seems unlikely. NY could snag Mayfield is he's still around at No.3, but that is looking less likely by the minute.

The Browns wisely coughed up two first round picks in trade with the Buffalo Bills to ensure they landed Kosar in the 1985 supplemental draft.

If the Browns didn't want Chubb, there were undoubtedly a slew of teams who would have jumped at the chance to trade up and grab him, knowing that the Denver Broncos were certain to select him should he fall to #5. As recently has last week, Beane was harping on the importance of finding a young quarterback to add to the depth chart that includes AJ McCarron and Nathan Peterman.
