Rumors swirling on Thursday have Baker Mayfield as the likely first-overall pick to the Cleveland Browns. Mayfield tweeted this on Wednesday showing he is draft day-ready. 

Rumble Ponies outfielder Tim Tebow is also a college football analyst for ESPN and he was gushing about what Baker Mayfield could bring to a football team. 

"I really think Baker Mayfield is someone who is pretty special," said Rumble Ponies outfielder/ESPN college football analyst Tim Tebow. "I think that the way that he can play, the way that he can lead, the "It Factor" that he has, I haven't seen that from a lot of other players and I am someone who buys into that. It makes a difference in you making other people better. It's not just about throwing and running and calling a play. It's about rallying a team and having grown man look at you and respect you and want to play harder for you."

NFL Draft starts at 8 p.m. on ESPN Thursday night.
