Baker Mayfield has long been one of college football's most-outspoken players. Will that be changing once he gets into the NFL?
Maybe. Some NFL personnel have reportedly made it known to Mayfield that they'd like him to "tone down" some of his candidness, at least on social media.
And maybe Mayfield will. But when it comes to one topic, he absolutely will not.
Mayfield was at Saturday's Oklahoma-Texas game. He went on a bit of a rant about his hatred for the Longhorns and says he will never stop talking about that.
"I was born and raised in Austin, they didn’t recruit me," Mayfield said of Texas. "I grew up 15 miles from the campus."
"I can’t stand them, or anything they do. I don’t care."
Mayfield "absolutely" won't be toning any of that down.
"I talked to the NFL guys that say I need to calm down a little bit," he said. "But when it comes to Texas, absolutely not. I can’t stand them.”
You would hope that most NFL people wouldn't have a problem with that. (Unless they went to Texas, of course.)
Mayfield is projected to be a potential top 10 pick in the 2018 NFL Draft. He's set to perform at the NFL Combine later this month.
