Baker Mayfield: Giants Picking Daniel Jones 'Blows My Mind'

"I can not believe the Giants took Daniel Jones", Mayfield told GQ's Clay Skipper.

Jones finished with a 17-19 record at Duke before the Giants made him the No. 6 overall pick. I don't know what a bull's-eye is. If they are not trying to beat our ass and we are not trying to beat their ass, I do not know what else you do.


"Yeah I've seen him play, watched him in college, and a little bit past year", Jones said. Both hosts believe it was more than just a football move but Kanell puts that on OBJ, while Bell feels these things often have more to to with that happens on the field, and that is fine to say. "That's one thing that, I don't care about a lot of opinions if you like me or not, but that looked like my character was way out of line, so that's the only reason I addressed it", Mayfield said. "And then me going on a rant after that about QB evaluation and then my frustration from recruiting processes and stuff". Where I brought up winning is important. I've heard nothing but great things from Saquon and Sterling Shepard, guys who have nothing but respect for him, and I respect their opinions.

Mayfield is scheduled to meet with reporters Wednesday.


A "SportsCenter" segment came on TV about the Giants during the interview, and the second-year Browns QB fired off on the tangent.

It's been a long summer of New York Giants drama in Cleveland Ohio, not the place you'd typically expect to be a hotbed of Big Blue criticism. "This was personal. They thought they'd send me here to die", he said. "We said that all along, I said I would not comment on what he says about the situation". Beckham told the magazine that he believes that the Giants had better offers from other teams but traded him to the Browns hoping to stifle his career.
