—Mayfield is a tough, fiery competitor with a playmaker mentality.
—Has a quick delivery and enough arm strength to drive the ball with velocity and hit passes up the seam.
—In 2017, his deep accuracy and play from the pocket improved, and it appeared his arm strength did too. There are few balls Mayfield misses on.
—His tape shows a smart, quick-thinking quarterback who can make reads and get the ball out on time. His touch accuracy will remind you of Drew Brees at times.
—Despite not being track-fast, Mayfield uses his legs well and can extend plays. He has a thick frame and can take hits.
—Mayfield is coming out of a spread offense, but scouts and coaches raved about his football IQ and overall intelligence.
—Mayfield comes in under the NFL's ideal size threshold at 6'0 ⅝".
—He was arrested before the 2017 season for public intoxication, disorderly conduct and attempting to run from the police.
—Mayfield was caught on camera yelling obscenities across the field and grabbing his crotch, gesturing at Kansas players. Some scouts were rubbed the wrong way when he planted the Oklahoma flag at midfield after beating Ohio State.
—The Sooners' scheme was tailor-made for Mayfield and gave him huge passing windows. It got him on the edge of the formation to better see routes.
—Plays hero ball and will make off-balance throws that can sail.

Mayfield is a polarizing prospect given his size and off-field issues, but he is also the most accurate passer in the draft and a natural playmaker with his legs. In the right scheme, he should be able to start early in his pro career.
