In a few years, if quarterback Baker Mayfield is a Pro Bowler, a lot of people will be erasing old tweets from draft night.
Some people liked the Cleveland Browns’ first overall pick of Mayfield, who has been knocked because he’s just 6-foot-1, and he’s … let’s say “confident.” But a lot of people absolutely hated the pick, and took to Twitter to express their disgust. Then, when the Browns made another shocking pick with Ohio State cornerback Denzel Ward at the fourth overall selection, it got no better.
This is just what Browns fans do. Mayfield is a very good prospect. Ward was the best cornerback in the draft. But what would a draft night be without Browns angst (and to be honest, they haven’t earned much in the way of a benefit of the doubt)?
Here is a sampling of how much the pick of Mayfield, and then Ward, set off Browns fans (and just people making fun of the Browns) on social media. Save some of these in case Mayfield becomes a star:

The Browns really are the dumbest franchise of all time. I like Baker and all, but he would have been available with the 4th pick.

If another team took Mayfield 1st and Ward 4th, it would be thinking outside the box. Given the Browns' history, it's probably just the wrong box.

Browns are so stupid! Mayfield would have been there at 4! He’s not even the best QB in the draft
