Baker Mayfield arrives at Senior Bowl; won't commit to playing Saturday

Baker Mayfield arrives at Senior Bowl; won't commit to playing Saturday”

"Mom's not doing too great", he said.

Heisman Trophy victor Baker Mayfield is impressing scouts early in Mobile, Alabama.

Heisman watch: Heisman winning quarterback Baker Mayfield was a late arrival to Mobile after dealing with a family situation on Sunday and Monday.

"Everybody wants to portray the bad boy, the Johnny Manziel stuff, but I love the game of football", Mayfield said. From 2010 to 2017, 93 quarterbacks were selected with 23 not being good enough to play in a game.

"I'll do everything I can do to win". Sitting in my press box seat, I'm watching him interact with his teammates, his coaches - that part of it is very, very good.

He reached a plea deal after an arrest on public intoxication charges during the last offseason. He still needs to consistently throw with a narrower base, but Mayfield has plenty of arm strength to spray the ball all over the field.

Joseph said the offense for the week was installed over two days, after which the quarterbacks have been put through the paces on the practice field and in meetings before Saturday's Senior Bowl game.

"[They want] to see what I'm all about, see how I react to certain things, " Mayfield said after Tuesday's practice at Ladd-Peebles Stadium. "We aren't just going to show up on Saturday to get walked all over".

Others on the radar are USC's Sam Darnold, UCLA's Josh Rosen and possibly one more. The Broncos' coaching staff is directing the North team at the Senior Bowl, and Mayfield, one of the top quarterback prospects on the draft board, is one of four QBs on the North roster.

Wentz's counsel was that "you're stepping into a locker room with 30-year-old guys and if you're not mentally, ready it's just going to eat you alive". But Wentz offered advice to Allen about the National Football League two years ago. Mayfield is the more finished product while Allen is a work in progress.

That left him wanting to prove that he's "way more accurate than that shows".

"I'm excited about that, man", Matthews said.

Asked if there's another more flattering net drill video in his future, he said with a laugh, "we threw to a lot of nets in Wyoming, " he said. "That's the main reason I'm here".

The Broncos are early in their postseason evaluation period, and almost every option is on the table as they search for a starting quarterback and look to rebuild an offense that has been inconsistent and underwhelming for more than two seasons now. The Denver Broncos are getting a 1st hand look at Mayfield with their coaching staff running the North squad. That's what you try to do.

Likewise, the Broncos requested that Mayfield be on the North team.

"We wanted to have an opportunity to get to meet him", said Hall of Fame quarterback John Elway, Denver's general manager and president of football operations.
