Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield is among the many who were shocked to see former Duke Blue Devils QB Daniel Jones selected sixth overall by the New York Giants in the 2019 NFL Draft. GQ Magazine recently sat down for a wide-ranging interview with Mayfield that included his opinion about the Jones pick, as well as his own rise to superstardom and the draft process.
According to GQ's Clay Skipper, Mayfield shared his unfiltered thoughts about Jones after a SportsCenter segment about the Giants' rookie aired near the booth where they were chatting.
“I cannot believe the Giants took Daniel Jones,” Mayfield said about the Giants' sixth overall selection. “Blows my mind.”
“Some people overthink it,” Mayfield continued. “That's where people go wrong. They forget you've gotta win.”
“Either you have a history of winning and being that guy for your team,” he says, “or you don't.”
