Editor’s note: Baker Mayfield was selected No. 1 overall by the Cleveland Browns in the 2018 NFL Draft. Here’s an interview NCAA.com’s Andy Wittry did with him last December:
Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield was named a finalist for the Davey O’Brien and Maxwell Awards, so he visited the College Football Hall of Fame in Atlanta, Ga., this week for the 2017 College Football Awards. NCAA.com talked to Mayfield one-on-one and asked him five questions about the music he listens to before games, video games and what college football legend he would choose as a teammate.
Here’s what he had to say.
NCAA.com: If you only have time to play one more song in pregame warmups, what song would you choose?
Baker Mayfield: “Wow, can I look through my phone? Let me double check so I don’t give the wrong answer because I’ve got a couple options. Let me read a couple for you. I might go Colors from Halsey, it’s the Audien remix, Butterfly Effect by Travis Scott, Keep Quiet by Future or you know, you can’t go wrong with a little old school DMX.”
NCAA.com: What video games do you play?
BM: “I’m bad at sports games so I’ve resorted to Call of Duty and Halo.”
NCAA.com: Do you have any hidden talents?
BM: “I like to think I can sing but I can’t. I jam out in the shower and in the car if that counts.”
NCAA.com: If you could pick any player in college football history to be your teammate on offense and one to play against on defense, who would you choose?
BM: “Calvin Johnson, I’m taking Calvin Johnson. If I’m picking someone to try to defend him, gotta go with Neon Deion (Sanders).”
NCAA.com: Who is the most famous person who follows you on Twitter or Instagram?
BM: “Jordan Spieth, that was recent so I’m pretty proud of that one.”
