Heisman trophy winner Baker Mayfield apparently is a big fan of the Miami Dolphins and wants to get picked up by the team in the upcoming NFL draft.
Tonight, on Kenny Stills’ Instagram live feed, Mayfield popped in to say that he wanted to get drafted by the Fins.
According to the Miami Herald, the Dolphins are looking into drafting a QB in April to backup Ryan Tannehill, who is set to return from a devastating knee injury.

Buckle up, Dolphins fans.
Of course, it takes two to tango, and we don’t know if the Dolphins even like the song. Mayfield is an acquired taste — as we documented here — but he is also a baller.
He won the Heisman Trophy and had Oklahoma a stop away from the title game earlier this month.
The Dolphins want to draft a quarterback in April. They’re even open to taking one in the first round, if he is the best player on their board.
There’s a good chance that Mayfield could be available for the Dolphins at #11 but would the team willing to take the risk on the hard partying QB? Hopefully Miami does end up picking him up because Mayfield and Miami is a match made in heaven.
