Baker Mayfield is a remarkable football player, and former teammate Dede Westbrook can't think of one thing he isn't good at.

Last season, Baker Mayfield and Dede Westbrook were an unbelievable duo for Oklahoma.

Mayfield threw for 3,965 yards, 40 touchdowns, and eight interceptions, and over 11 yards per attempt. Westbrook was responsible for 1,524 yards and 17 of those touchdowns. Amazingly, Mayfield improved on his numbers across the board this season, even with Westbrook in the NFL, en route to this year's Heisman Trophy.

Westbrook, now with the Jacksonville Jaguars, wrote about Mayfield in a piece for the Players' Tribune.

Those who aren't fans of Mayfield's on-field hijinks, or remember his off-season arrest, probably won't agree with all of Westbrook's take, but it's hard to take exception with anything he has done in the games themselves. Mayfield put together one of the most prolific quarterback seasons we've seen in some time. It will be very interesting to see where Mayfield winds up landing in the NFL next season.
