Baker Mayfield apparently did not look ready to compete for the Browns starting QB job

The Cleveland Browns are in the middle of their annual offseason hype parade, although this time around it feels like it might be worth watching, considering all of the impressive upgrades made by general manager John Dorsey this offseason. It starts with the quarterback position, where Baker Mayfield, drafted No. 1 overall in the 2018 NFL Draft, is expected to push veteran Tyrod Taylor, who was acquired in an offseason trade with the Bills.

Based on one report out of OTAs, that won’t be the case, as’s Dan Labbe wrote from Browns OTAs and minicamp he doesn’t see Mayfield as ready to compete for the starting job. It’s a small sample size, but Labbe believes the rookie is lagging behind Taylor. More on the NFL 2018 NFL Over-Under Win Totals: Browns poised to be an AFC wild-card contender This is where I tell you that, based on the six practices of OTAs and minicamp that were open to the media, Mayfield, in my opinion, did not look ready to compete with Taylor for the No. 1 quarterback job, Labbe wrote. He must have received some criticism on this, because he added an update/addendum to the numbered item that noted I mean he simply wasn’t ready to push Taylor for the job and that his statement was not a commentary on his preparation, which, by most accounts, has been up to par.

Tyrod is definitely a guy that we have a lot of trust in and we believe that he’s always going to put the ball in the right places, as long as we protect him and keep him off the ground and keep him on his feet, we’ll be alright. That’s the kind of phrasing that leads you to believe a core group of offensive players, most of whom have played with a lot of young quarterbacks and most of whom have not won a lot of games, are interested in seeing what happens with a veteran under center.

Noah Joseph was aiming for professional development.

He ended up taking the next step in his profession.

The new Rutgers Tony Jefferson Jersey co-defensive coordinator and safeties coach played for Ash at Drake University, and was a graduate assistant on the same staff there and at Iowa State. Once the second signing day passed in February, Joseph wanted to talk shop with Ash. He ended up getting a job with him and leaving Indiana after four years as its safeties coach and defensive recruiting coordinator.

At that point of the season, after recruiting and all that, you’re always trying to do professional development. Where can I go and kind of hone my craft a little bit? Talk NFL, talk scheme, talk fundamentals. There was some technique stuff I wanted to get done, and it all came back to, ‘Let me ask coach Ash,’ Joseph said in the spring.

So when the Travis Kelce Youth Jersey opportunity came, I knew that was the guy I wanted to go do professional development with, learn my craft. If I can work with him every day, that is my personal development.
