The Browns selected Baker Mayfield with the first pick in the 2018 NFL Draft, surprising almost everyone. Much like Deshaun Watson last year, Mayfield will not start immediately, but his time in the limelight is imminent.

While it's foolhardy when exactly Mayfield will take over, it's safe to say that the writing is on the wall. When he does, he will bring some of the same attributes that made him a three-time finalist for the Heisman trophy and a winner in 2017.
The tools he brings to the table; mobility, accuracy, efficiency, attitude and confidence most likely coincides with that of Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson.
Wilson was considered undersized which limited his draft potential. After his success and a few other "shorter" signal callers, there are less worries about Mayfield six years later.
Mayfield's ability to make pre-snap reads and get rid of the ball quickly is one of the main reasons he completed 70 percent of his passes in 2017.
He may not have the arm talent of Josh Allen — who does — he does have enough in his right arm to hit the deep ball in stride.
His mobility is also a strength. He is comfortable throwing both in and out of the pocket.
The Browns situation is very similar to what the Texans looked like last year. An opportunity for a offense that, with the right quarterback, could be a dynamic and explosive unit.
With Corey Coleman and Josh Gordon on the outside, Duke Johnson as an excellent pass catcher out of the backfield. If they can find another running back in the second round, it could make Cleveland a relevant franchise once again.
The Browns traded for Tyrod Taylor in the offseason, but given what they invested in Mayfield, the leash will be very short with the incoming quarterback. While it's doubtful that Taylor's hook will be as quick as Tom Savage's last year, it won't be long before the whispers will become more should Taylor or Cleveland struggle.
Either way, the season ends up with Mayfield having a strong debut season, whenever that begins.
