Baker Mayfield is a football player in the National Football League (NFL). He is an American quarterback for the Cleveland Browns. In the 2018 NFL draft, Mayfield was selected first overall by the Browns. In his first appearance for the Browns, he led them to their first win in 19 games, ending a 635-day winless streak. He broke the rookie-season passing-TD record in 2018 when he threw 27 touchdowns in his 13 starts. The previous record was of 26 held by Peyton Manning and Russell Wilson. Mayfield played for the Texas Tech Red Raiders at the beginning of his college career. He then transferred to the University of Oklahoma, where he played for the Sooners. In an interview with ESPN, he mentioned that he chose to transfer due to some scholarship issues and there was lack of proper communication with the coaches of Texas Tech. Due to this, Mayfield popularized the ‘Baker Mayfield rule’, which allowed walk-on players, without a written scholarship offer from the school they are transferring from, to transfer within the conference without losing the eligibility for a season. He had to sit out the 2014 season due to NCAA transfer rules. The following year, he was selected as the starting quarterback for the Sooners after winning an open quarterback competition against Trevor Knight. For his performance as a senior in 2017, Mayfield won several awards including the Heisman Trophy, Maxwell Award, Walter Camp Award, and an unanimous All-America recognition.
