"Training is what it is, working hard to test well", said Mayfield after the North team's first practice.
Almost every option is a possibility for the Broncos and none of them guaranteed except one: The next starter for Denver will walk into a pressure-cooker as he attempts to rejuvenate an offense once run by Peyton Manning and star on a roster built by John Elway.
Mayfield clearly isn't like Manziel.
"They look good", Elway told reporters regarding the two quarterbacks. "But it's an honor". That's where an up-close week at the Senior Bowl could give the Broncos a little more information about Mayfield or any other quarterback they see work this week. There is a quick transition from what the players on the roster might have been used to during college meetings to what Broncos coaches have expected.
But Mayfield wants NFL teams to learn about his character this week at the Senior Bowl instead of simply buying into the perception that he's similar to Manziel, who partied his way out of the league two seasons after the Browns drafted him 22nd overall out of Texas A&M in 2014.
With being the first-overall pick, however, always comes along with it the high probability that you may be going to an terrible team, and, worse yet, an terrible organization.
"Mom's not doing too great", he said, noting she has a special appointment on Thursday. "I haven't studied him enough to know the book". It wasn't about delaying measuring. And I think I made progress with my footwork under center, which has been the biggest challenge for me. He shook hands with strength-and-conditioning coach Luke Richesson on the sideline.
Mayfield does throw the ball with plenty of zip. Despite concern about his height, his skill was unquestionable as he scattered passes and won out as the most accurate quarterback on Day 1.
Allen opted to return for the 2017 season partly with the advice of Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz, who played in the same offense under current Wyoming coach Craig Bohl at North Dakota State before also competing in the Senior Bowl.
With that said, there have been concerns surrounding Mayfield and his character, if not his temperament, and those concerns have drawn comparisons to another talented college quarterback and Heisman Trophy victor, Johnny Manziel. "There's no doubt about that". I've watched him play all year. "It takes awhile. So I think by the time the game comes around, they'll be fine". "I felt that I couldn't picture myself at 20 years old, going into a locker room, with starting only one season of college football, having those guys look at me and follow me and trust me". Adding to the confusion, NFL.com's Tom Pelissero tweeted that Mayfield would be in attendance Saturday but did not know whether he'd play.
Another person joked: "Congrats and!" While no official word has been given on the baby news, there have been plenty of hints. But he seemed pleased when a photographer suggested they name the baby after his beloved late mother, Donda.
