Report Baker Mayfield needed convincing to meet with Patriots

Baker Mayfield was convinced he was coming to the East Coast.

Enamored with Mayfield but at least 20 spots away from realistically being able to draft him, the Patriots' attempts to interview the Heisman Trophy victor were considered pointless, and thus rejected by Mayfield's camp.

Rosen, taken 10th overall by the Cardinals, who traded up to get him, was ranked third by the Browns.

The Cleveland Browns surprised everyone by chose to settle on Mayfield with the No. 1 overall pick.

The Cleveland Browns made a decision to take former Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield with the first overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft.

New England was looking to bring in a talented quarterback to replace Tom Brady in the future. Cleveland never tipped its hand to Mayfield or Mills about its intentions. He put together an absolutely monstrous season from a statistical standpoint. In two years as a starter with the Tigers, he completed 325 of 544 passes for 2,463 yards, 27 touchdowns and seven interceptions. Other quarterbacks like Aaron Rodgers and Russell Wilson have proven that being a big quarterback isn't necessary to succeed.

Was Roethlisberger's long-term commitment in response to the Steelers selecting quarterback Mason Rudolph in last week's draft?

The Patriots did eventually end up taking a quarterback, selecting Danny Etling of LSU with the first pick in the seventh and final round. The Mayfield move, however, would have been mind-blowing if true, and they pulled it off.

Baker Mayfield also turned 23 recently, which obviously helps more in the confidence department than, say, a 20-year old kid like Sam Darnold.

All of that being said, this news is certainly intriguing.

Dorsey said it was more than just the confidence Mayfield exuded, but was very much about his attention to detail in one-on-one meetings.

With Brady and Belichick both likely edging toward the twilight of their careers, it's interesting that the head coach is doing his best to cement his legacy by making sure the level of success in New England continues long after he's gone.
