Baker Mayfield eligible to participate in NFL combine

Quote:
Oklahoma Sooners quarterback Baker Mayfield's arrest in February won't disqualify him from participating in this year's NFL scouting combine, a league spokesman said Wednesday.

While the list of players invited to Indianapolis for the combine in late February/early March has yet to be finalized, the expectation is that Mayfield, the Heisman Trophy winner, will be among those invited.

In recent years, per NFL policy, some players who had off-field legal issues were not invited to participate. Bengals running back Joe Mixon was the most high-profile case last year.

Mayfield was arrested Feb. 25 in Fayetteville, Arkansas. He was charged with public intoxication, disorderly conduct, fleeing and resisting arrest. Mayfield reached a plea deal in June and paid fines for several of the charges.

However, because the incident did not involve violence, NFL officials seem not to feel it rises to the level of offense that would preclude a player from participating in the combine.


I think this guy has all the makings of the next Johnny Manziel

Does he have a documented history of asholedness? I don't know anything about him outside of football so if you got anything lets hear it.

Johnny has family money. Does Baker?
Johnny left college as soon as he could. Did Baker?
Johnny did cocaine. Baker grabbed his nuts.

I totally get the comparison, tho...

Mayfield isn't anywhere close to Manziel. He's got a bit of an outwardly "fuck you" attitude, but he's not Manziel. Mayfield has the respect of his teammates and is a leader in the Oklahoma locker room. Manziel wanted to make money and be famous. Mayfield wants to win football games.

I will say that I'm REALLY glad the Bears don't have to dip into this year's QB pool.

I think it's okay to have him help our team. I think he will make a difference in the game.

This year’s QB crop certainly did not arrive as advertised

i cant remember if anyone on this board was saying it, but last season there were plenty out there on other boards who were furious with us trading up for trubs when 2018's class was going to be so much better.
