With less than one week before the 2018 NFL draft begins at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, quarterback Baker Mayfield is giving fans a behind-the-scenes look at his life. 

On Friday, Mayfield announced the launch of a new documentary series titled Behind Baker on Facebook Watch, and the first episode shows him taking part in various fan and media events and discussing the Oklahoma Sooners' 54-48 overtime loss to the Georgia Bulldogs in the Rose Bowl:

Speaking to his competitive nature, Mayfield also touched on a discussion he had with Kirk Cousins before the veteran quarterback signed a three-year, $84 million fully guaranteed deal with the Minnesota Vikings. 

"I wanted to look at Kirk Cousins and say, you know, 'I have a few places that I don't want you to go so you don't take my spot,'" Mayfield said.

The 23-year-old is expected to be a first-round pick when the draft begins Thursday. B/R's Matt Miller projects the Denver Broncos will select Mayfield at No. 5 overall.   

Mayfield won the 2017 Heisman Trophy after throwing for 4,627 yards and 43 touchdowns. He also led the Sooners to a 12-2 record and their second appearance in the College Football Playoff in the past three years.
