CLEVELAND — Baker Mayfield might win rookie of the year, and he looks like he might be the quarterback to lead the team into the next decade, but not everyone was convinced.

Let's take a trip on memory lane to see what experts said about Mayfield when he was drafted.

ESPN said Mayfield is competitive and accurate but, like Johnny Manziel, is not ideal NFL quarterback size and had off-the-field issues.

Cris Carter, from First Things First, said the Browns finally got it right by taking Mayfield at No. 1.

Regardless of what they experts said, Mayfield ended up being just what the Browns needed.
