Baker Mayfield got a strong endorsement today.
Longtime Dallas Cowboys VP of player personnel Gil Brandt is well-regarded for his evaluating prowess. He helped build the Cowboys’ dynasty in the 1970s and is a two-time Super Bowl champion.
Brandt seems to be a fan of polarizing Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield, the Heisman Trophy winner and potential first-round draft pick.
After spending time with Mayfield today, Brandt predicted he will handle the interview part of the NFL draft process well.
He’ll need to do that to reassure teams he’s worth drafting early.

NFL franchises will no doubt question Mayfield about his “antics” and cockiness, among other things.
It is up to him to win them over in interviews.
