Baker Mayfield Reveals Why He Won't Attend the NFL Draft


Baker Mayfield is expected to be an early first round selection in the NFL Draft, depending on whose board you believe. 

No matter what, the Oklahoma quarterback wants to spend draft night with family and friends back home in Texas. Mayfield stated that although it's his name being called on the big night, there are a lot of people that helped him get there and he wants to spend it with them. 

One reporter asked if Mayfield would still stay home if he had a feeling he'd be a top 5 or 10 pick. His response, "I have that feeling now, and no I'm not going."

Mayfield has a rare mix of a confident, yet humble personality.
