INDIANAPOLIS -- Baker Mayfield made his case for being the No. 1 pick of the draft Friday at the NFL Scouting Combine, and the No. 4 pick, too.
"First things first, they'd get a winner," Mayfield said. "If there's anyone who would turn that franchise around, it'd be me," he said. "They're close. They're very close. They've got the right pieces. I think they just need that one guy at quarterback."
The Browns hold the No. 1 and 4 picks of the draft. The club invested a second-round pick in a quarterback last year in Notre Dame's DeShone Kizer, but after an 0-16 season and a change in general managers, Cleveland could easily be back in the market for a quarterback early in the draft. The always-confident Mayfield called himself the draft's most accurate quarterback "by far," and addressed concerns about his height (6-foot 5/8) as well.
"I've got three years of tape you can watch. Height doesn't matter at that point," he said. "I think I have less batted balls at the line of scrimmage than all the other guys here."
