The Browns shocked quite a few people when they selected Baker Mayfield with the first overall pick in the draft. Love him or hate him, Mayfield has all the confidence and personality to make for good viewing.
Mayfield could turn a lot of people around on him, and those that are already sold should enjoy seeing what the Browns have in store for their first-year quarterback. Mayfield isn’t lacking confidence, and whether you want to see him humbled with a “welcome to the NFL” moment or you want to see him prove his doubters wrong from the get-go, he should be fun to watch.
Like many, I was reluctant about being the featured team on Hard Knocks but once we sat down and talked about it as an organization, I feel a lot better and understand why the time is right, general manager John Dorsey said. “Hue and I both feel like this team is in a good place and that we are in the process of building something that will lead to success. Being a part of Hard Knocks will give our fans the opportunity to see how passionate the people in our building are about winning and how excited we are about getting to work and preparing for the 2018 season.”
This won’t be the first time Jackson has been featured on Hard Knocks. The Browns coach was the Cincinnati Bengals running backs coach when the series featured Cleveland’s AFC North rivals in 2013.
Nine months later, the Jets still hope Enunwa can emerge as a top-end starting receiver as they prepare to eventually pass the quarterback baton to rookie No. 3 overall pick Sam Darnold. The Nebraska product is feeling good as OTAs loom.
I think I’ll be able to go, he said last week in reference to the offseason program, per Darryl Slater of NJ Advance Media. “I think we’ll be smart about it. I think I’m going to go out there and do what I need to do.”
Enunwa added that he’s “probably ahead of schedule” and that he’s been “doing everything with the guys,” including “running routes [and] catching the ball.”
We’ll see if he can do that in a more formal environment when the Jets hold their first set of OTAs next week.
Mike Evans, DeSean Jackson and Adam Humphries all saw far more work than 2017 third-round pick Chris Godwin in the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ receiving corps last season, but Godwin capped his rookie campaign with 10 catches for 209 yards in Tampa Bay’s final two games.
