This year’s NFL Scouting Combine has already produced some interesting soundbites from prospective talent — including one today from star wide receiver Garrett Wilson.
When asked about the idea of playing alongside Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield, the former Ohio State standout said he would love to link back up with “his guy,” per Cleveland insider Hayden Grove.
Wilson and Mayfield both attended Lake Travis High School in Austin, Texas. The two have thrown together in the past and Wilson has formally met with the Browns franchise.

Wilson ranks among the elite wide receiver options in this year’s class — a group that includes his Buckeyes teammate Chris Olave, USC’s Drake London, Arkansas’ Treylon Burks, Alabama’s Jameson Williams and others.
The Browns currently hold the No. 13 overall pick in this year’s draft and are no doubt on the hunt for some improved wide receiver talent heading into the 2022 season. In fact, some feel the Cleveland front office could trade up in the draft to get their next wideout man.
Through his final season with the Buckeyes in 2021, Wilson logged 1,058 yards and 12 touchdowns. The Browns struggled mightily in the receiving game this past season — failing to see a single receiver break 600 yards on the year.
Who do you think the Browns should take with their first pick in the draft?
