Scouting Mayfield vs. TCU: Sooners QB worthy of first-round pick


NORMAN, Okla. — Some people might have discounted Oklahoma QB Baker Mayfield’s 598-yard performance last week against Oklahoma State because of the poor defense played by the Cowboys.

Well, if anyone wasn’t on the Mayfield bandwagon after that game, they should hop aboard now.

On Saturday, Mayfield torched one of the top defenses in the country, throwing for 333 yards and 3 touchdowns in the Sooners’ 38-20 win over TCU.

This was the first time I scouted Mayfield in person, and I left the game thinking he’s worthy of a first-round pick. Now, there are still plenty of players I need to study and we don’t know which underclassmen will end up entering the draft, so my opinion could change down the road, but Mayfield looked like an NFL starter Saturday night.

I don’t have the reservations that others do when it comes to Mayfield’s lack of height, the offense he plays in and the lack of defense in the Big 12 conference. The traits speak for themselves, and Mayfield has some special qualities.

Here are my 5 takeaways after watching Mayfield live on Saturday.

1. He is the energizer bunny. Mayfield was one of the first players on the field during pre-game
