Mayfield celebrates draft with family, girlfriend

The Associated Press - April 27, 2018 11:41 am

Baker Mayfield wasn’t inside AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, when NFL commissioner Roger Goodell read his name aloud, as the first overall pick by the Browns. Instead, the former Oklahoma quarterback was three hours away in Lakeway, celebrating the life-changing moment with family and girlfriend Emily Wilkinson.

“Congrats baby. I’m so proud of you. Here we go!!!!! #MMO #clevelandbrowns,” Wilkinson posted on Instagram on Thursday, embracing Mayfield, 23, shortly after he learned his fate.

An undersize signal-caller, Mayfield’s stock continued to rise leading up to the night of the draft, despite previous reports of the Browns being all-in on USC product Sam Darnold, whom the Jets selected at No. 3.
