Baker Mayfield is living quite the life. The reigning Heisman Trophy-winner took the Sooners all the way to the College Football Playoff earlier this year, and now he's prepping for the NFL draft.

Mayfield dominated Senior Bowl practice in late January, only increasing the hype surrounding one of college football's most exciting players. Early mock drafts suggest Mayfield will be drafted in the first half of the first round.

Mel Kiper selected Mayfield with the No. 13 overall pick to the Washington Redskins. other mock drafts have Baker going as high as No. 6 to the New York Jets.

Mayfield took a trip to Minneapolis earlier this week to speak with reporters ahead of the Super Bowl. Before New England and Philadelphia kick off the for second time in a Super Bowl (2004), a little Mayfield-mania took place.

As the former Oklahoma star made his media rounds, he was asked who he wanted to play for. Like a seasoned veteran, Mayfield suggested he'd play for any NFL team.

However, he couldn't help but mention on team as an "ideal" situation. It's a certain team that employs a top-5 pick in the upcoming draft.

The New York football Giants.

The Giants have an aging Eli Manning, and haven't had a top pick like this in some time. Would they pass up on a quarterback? It's unlikely.

But will New York select Baker Mayfield with that No. 2 pick? We'll just have to wait to find out.
