Baker Mayfield will play in the Senior Bowl.
Every year after the conclusion of bowl season, there’s one final opportunity for collegiate seniors to showcase their skills in front of NFL scouts. Baker Mayfield is the biggest name to accept an invitation so far.
This year the Reese’s Senior Bowl will include the Heisman Trophy winner. The official Twitter account for the senior bowl announced that Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield will partake in the game.

Mayfield has impressed with his play over the course of three seasons at Oklahoma, winning the Heisman Trophy this season after leading the Sooners to the College Football Playoff.
However, some scouts are concerned about his height. In an attempt to answer any questions, Mayfield will participate in the Senior Bowl, giving NFL coaches and scouts the opportunity to work with the star quarterback early in the draft process.
Both Mel Kiper Jr. and Todd McShay list Mayfield as the No. 4 quarterback in the 2018 draft, but he could certainly help his stock with an impressive performance in the College Football Playoff and Senior Bowl.
The Senior Bowl kicks off on January 28 at 2:30 p.m. ET.
