Are you agreeing with the hype and rave reviews surrounding Oklahoma QB Baker Mayfield's performance at Senior Bowl practices so far?

The Heisman Trophy victor did not travel to Alabama until Tuesday because his mother is ill, he said, and when asked if he would play in the game or take limited work in the game, Mayfield simply said: "We'll see, we'll see, I'll address that later".

"It was fun to watch the QBs get better at that thing, " Joseph said.

Mayfield's North teammate is Wyoming quarterback Josh Allen, and there's a possibility that Allen could be a Giant, sitting behind Eli Manning.

"He's a guy that competes".

"Well, he's big, he's strong, he's got a strong arm and he can move around, " Elway, the Broncos' general manager, said in an on-field interview with 9NEWS following the North team's practice.

Regardless of how many reps he takes Saturday, though, he has plenty to prove during the three days of practice. Asked Tuesday whether reports of him taking limited to no reps in Saturday's contest are accurate, Mayfield responded, "We'll see". While Washington fans cringe thinking of trading up for another quarterback, the package to move up to get Mayfield will not almost be as costly as it was in 2012 when the Redskins drafted Robert Griffin III.

Arsenal overcome Chelsea over two legs to reach Carabao Cup final
There weren't many awful individual performances from Arsenal players, but fans of the North London club have found one to criticise nonetheless.

The Conference USA defensive player of the year made his biggest weight gain before his senior season with a simple strategy: "See food, eat food". "In the end, hopefully by April 25 (the day before the draft begins), we have everything figured and know which direction we're going to go. We're in that process right now". He will go high in the draft, perhaps too high for the Redskins.

The reality exists that the Broncos will simply file away this information, storing it on an unused zip drive. Why?

Mayfield is widely regarded as a potential first-round pick and is in Mobile alongside Josh Allen, who has been projected by some as the potential No. 1 overall pick. There is no question.

Tray Matthews is hoping his second encounter with Baker Mayfield goes better than the first. Whether that's in free agency or in the draft. "That will be the focus until we get to the Combine". The Broncos coaching staff is leading the North team this week. They think they know, but they don't know yet. That was good to see. This is, I think, why this is such a great opportunity. They recently brought in Todd Haley at offensive coordinator as well.

The Broncos face hard decisions. "I've met with all the teams, informally and formally". He did not rule it out.

Teams will have to come to grips with Mayfield's intensity if they want to draft him, but it appears at least one scout is far more enthralled with his skills on the field than his problems on and off of it.
