Baker Mayfield eventually got the call from the Browns that he would be the first overall pick in the draft, but in the tense moments before the most important call of his life, one of his friends at the draft party decided to prank Mayfield to lighten the mood. Based on comments from the video, Mayfield hadn’t yet been told by Cleveland he was going #1.
Baker laughed off the joke and eventually got the ring from Cleveland GM John Dorsey that he was waiting for. You can always count on your friends to keep you on your toes, or just be jerks.
The clip is from Behind Baker. Move ahead to 3:15 to see the call.
