Mayfield didn't attend the draft, instead opting to broadcast his home draft party on Instagram. Bob Stoops and Lincoln Riley were both there to help him take it all in.

After Mayfield got the call from the Browns, he hugged his girlfriend and a couple of his family members. He eventually makes his way back to another room, where Riley and Stoops are waiting. He embraced both coaches.
