Months of speculation came to an end on Thursday. The Cleveland Browns made Baker Mayfield, the Heisman Trophy winning Oklahoma quarterback, the first overall pick of the 2018 NFL Draft.

The move was anticipated.

A recent report suggested that the move was likely, although that same report was later doubted.

This is an assortment of the reactions that the pick generated.


Mayfield will attempt to be the man who breaks this franchise’s long run of quarterback futility.

In other words, the fun is just beginning.
