Here's Baker Mayfield's Sports Illustrated NFL Draft Preview Cover

The 2018 NFL Draft is one week from tomorrow. Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield will presumably be one of the first picks off the board.

Mayfield is one of the top four quarterback prospects in the draft, and seems like a lock to go somewhere in the top 10. There are plenty of QB-needy teams picking early in the draft.

Given his impressive on-field credentials and the way he carries himself, Mayfield is a polarizing and interesting figure. People seem to either love him or hate him.

Sports Illustrated highlighted that part of Mayfield in a cover story for its NFL Draft preview. Mayfield and Penn State running back Saquon Barkley appeared on separate versions of the cover.

Here is Mayfield's version. Like Barkley, he is shirtless.

In his profile, Mayfield guarantees he will be a top-five pick. You can read it here.

The 2018 NFL Draft will be held April 26-28 at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. The first round will air Thursday, April 26.

ESPN, Fox and NFL Network will broadcast the draft this year.
