Baker Mayfield will reportedly meet with nearly every NFL team with an early first-round draft pick and a need at quarterback over the next few days.
ESPN previously reported Mayfield would be meeting with the New York Jets, who hold the No. 3 overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft, early this week. ESPN’s Josina Anderson then reported that Mayfield met with the New York Giants (No. 2 overall) on Monday, and that he also would meet with the Buffalo Bills (No. 12) and the Miami Dolphins (No. 11) this week. He will then meet with the Denver Broncos (No. 5) and Arizona Cardinals (No. 15) early next week.
The former Oklahoma quarterback also met with the Cleveland Browns (No. 1, No. 4) last week.

Mayfield’s stock appears to be rising as the draft approaches after solid performances at NFL combine and Oklahoma’s pro day. It seems clear that every team looking for a quarterback in the draft has interest in him.
The Jets and Broncos are probably the teams most often associated with Mayfield in mock drafts and pre-draft reporting. However, if he slips past those two teams and out of the top 5, the Dolphins, Bills and Cardinals would all love to have him.
The reigning Heisman winner will not be attending the draft, which begins April 26 at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. He’ll be watching the draft from home when one of these teams — or perhaps another that elects to trade up — selects him to be the new face of a franchise.
