Denzel Ward Commented On Playing With Baker Mayfield

Baker Mayfield plants flag at midfield at Ohio Stadium.

Baker Mayfield is definitely not a well-liked person by Ohio State fans. They no doubt harbor resentment for Mayfield beating the Buckeyes early in the 2017 season and then planting the OU flag at midfield of Ohio Stadium.

Now, Buckeye fans who are Browns fans will have to root for Mayfield, since Cleveland took the Heisman Trophy winner with the No. 1 overall pick in tonight's draft. But it isn't just fans who will need to do some adjusting when it comes to Mayfield.

Ohio State cornerback Denzel Ward was Cleveland's choice with the No. 4 pick in the draft. He'll now go from playing against Mayfield to competing alongside him.

It will certainly be an adjustment. However, Ward seems willing to make it work.

Judging by his quotes tonight, he's going to let bygones be bygones when it comes to Baker.

We'd expect Ward to have this opinion. Everything gets thrown out the door once you make it to the pros.

However, we bet he's probably looking forward to making Baker work on the practice field and intercepting him a few times.
