Dede Westbrook Is The Best Player In The Country Says Baker Mayfield

Baker Mayfield took to Instagram to give a special birthday shoutout to Dede Westbrook.

Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield gave a very special shoutout to his favorite target, Dede Westbrook. The caption on the photo is what has everyone's attention.

Accompanying the photo was the following caption:

"Happy birthday to the best play in the country."

Not, "Happy birthday to Dede." Not, "happy birthday to my man, Dede." Mayfield threw no punches and said he believes Dede Westbrook is the best player in college football.

Westbrook is second in the country in receiving yards with 1,354 yards, and touchdowns with 15.

But does Westbrook have a shot at the Heisman Trophy?

Louisville's Lamar Jackson is a heavy favorite to win the award given to the country's best player. However, Dede Westbrook sits at No. 4 in ESPN's Heisman Watch, and could creep up if he continues his successful season on the national stage when Oklahoma plays Oklahoma State.

The Sooners host Oklahoma State on Dec. 3. The game time has yet to be released.
