Taylor and Mayfield met for the first time last week as the rookies joined the offseason program. "We can keep writing this narrative, Tyrod Taylor's the starting quarterback of this football team, and that won't change".
Highsmith's version echoes that of Browns' head coach Hue Jackson, who said over the weekend he only came to appreciate the former Oklahoma student after the NFL Combine at the beginning of March. Over the past three seasons in Buffalo, Taylor started 43 games and played in 44, posting an impressive 51-16 touchdown-interception ratio. "I want to play. I have to get prepared, get in the playbook and I'm ready to go to work though". That's why he's here. So I'm going to listen to him, but I've got to go compete, and first and foremost, I've got to go learn my job."That includes learning to operate under center, which he rarely did at Oklahoma."A lot of basic mistakes (my first practice) that I don't usually make", he said". From the very beginning, obviously, my immediate family, then the friends and coaches and people who have helped shape me. In 2001, one of the weakest quarterback classes of the past 20 years, Brees still couldn't crack the first round, even after Mike Vick went No. 1 overall to the Falcons.
The only other quarterback in rookie minicamp is Joel Stave, a well-traveled practice squad player. "There are some things we've got to clean up". As far as common sense goes, you don't draft someone with the No. 1 overall pick to be a backup.

The gesture comes after Kim and Moon held a historic meeting, making progress towards achieving peace on the peninsula. The president on Friday shared new details about that meeting but without specifics.
However, Cleveland fans have reasons to be optimistic as they also landed Ohio State cornerback Denzel Ward as fourth overall pick, Nevada guard Austin Corbett and Georgia running-back Nick Chubb at number 33 and 35 respectively in the National Football League draft.
"We've got to make sure we're not having to worry about that", said Mayfield of taking care of the ball.
Taylor was acquired by Sashi Brown in one of his first acts as the Browns vice president of player personnel. As such, it wouldn't be a surprise to see him starting sooner rather than later.
