Baker Mayfield wasn't always a hotshot quarterback.

BEREA, Ohio (AP) - Baker Mayfield intends to conquer, not divide. He wants No. 1 overall pick Baker Mayfield to sit and learn the National Football League game.

Head coach Hue Jackson has been adamant that Tyrod Taylor is the starter in Cleveland and that Mayfield will have to bide his time before he gets his chance to lead the offense.

He won't step on any toes. I'm still going to compete and try and win that job. It is also one of just six schools to have at least four former players go No. 1 overall.

"It's an exciting feeling right now", Mayfield said at Browns Rookie Camp Friday. "We can keep writing this narrative, Tyrod Taylor's the starting quarterback of this football team, and that won't change".

"It's a mentality that you're not going to take no for an answer", Mayfield said.

On Monday, Alonzo Highsmith, Cleveland V.P. of player personnel, admitted Darnold was indeed top of the Browns' list.

"It taught me patience", Mayfield said.

"It starts in the locker room, and that's why you bring some of the guys that this franchise has been bringing in". "I'm here now, not anxious about who liked me during the process". You can't talk about it and earn their respect. You have to put the time in. "I have to get prepared, get in the playbook and I'm ready to go to work though".

Mayfield just happened to be that choice for the Browns that will continue to push this conversation around him throughout the offseason because it is an imminent situation that will arise at some point. Mayfield has been impressed with Taylor's commitment and openness. I think if the Browns are as invested in him as we were at Oklahoma, he's going to return the favor by working his tail off. Because you're still the starting quarterback in Cleveland. However, the Browns are clearly counting on Mayfield being their franchise quarterback of the future.

"Winning the game will take care of winning them over, " he said. Mayfield says it feels like a weight has been lifted off his shoulders now that the draft process is over. "Right now, we are trying to get back to that".

NOTES: The Browns said their trade on Wednesday with Kansas City, swapping tight end Randall Telfer for Chiefs defensive end Dadi Nicolas, has been voided.

In five seasons under Haslam's majority ownership, the Browns have posted an NFL-worst 15-65 record.
