Baker Mayfield is tearing it up for the Cleveland Browns this season after the team drafted him No. 1 overall in the 2018 NFL draft. In his past two games, Mayfield has completed over 74-percent of his passes for 513 yards and five touchdowns to just one interception.

Mayfield's success late in the year shouldn't be surprising after what we saw him do while at Oklahoma. However we all know Mayfield's story about being a walk-on to the Sooners program.

Rather than taking his talents to a lower level of football, Mayfield walked on and won a Heisman Trophy.

So when a tweet suggested players should go to the Division 2 level rather than taking a preferred walk-on at a Division 1 program, Baker had to respond.

His response? "Eh."

Clearly Mayfield doesn't subscribe to the notion that you should attend a lower-tier program in order to secure more playing time. However, Mayfield is a very special case as most walk-ons don't go on to the glory he attained at Oklahoma.

Next up for Mayfield and the Browns is a trip to Cincinnati to take on the Bengals.
