Baker Mayfield really knows how to get people going.

Early this morning, GQ magazine released an interview with Mayfield and the Browns QB had some interesting thoughts on the Giants drafting Duke’s Daniel Jones.

Near our booth, a SportsCenter segment about the New York Giants catches Mayfield’s eye. “I cannot believe the Giants took Daniel Jones,” Mayfield says, about New York’s much-maligned draft-day decision to spend the sixth pick on the quarterback from Duke (whose college record was a measly 17–19). “Blows my mind.”

I tell Mayfield that I’m mystified that so many supposedly expert quarterback scouts seem unable to predict what makes a good NFL quarterback.

“Some people overthink it,” Mayfield says. “That’s where people go wrong. They forget you’ve gotta win.”

Mayfield was instantly slammed for his comments by the good folks on Twitter.

As of now, it seems like Baker’s assessment of Jones was way off.
