The Heisman Trophy winner is heading on down to Mobile, Alabama in late January.
This is a fairly big deal as Mayfield will be the first Heisman winner to attend the Senior Bowl since former Florida Gators quarterback Tim Tebow in 2007. And in a year where the amount of players declining to play in their final games before the NFL draft is skyrocketing, Mayfield represents an exception.
Of course, that's because Baker Mayfield is a bit of a different cat.
Draft analyst Daniel Jeremiah says Mayfield's decision is in line with his character and attitude, on and off the field: "When you watch him on tape, his greatest attributes are his toughness and his competitiveness. I think making this decision now, even before he's played in one of potentially two playoff games, fits perfectly with his playing style, which is all-gas, no-break aggressiveness.
"I can understand why some players would have some trepidation about playing in an extra game, but I don't know that fear is in Baker Mayfield's vocabulary."
The Sooners QB completed a nation-high 71 percent of his passes during his Heisman season, throwing 41 touchdowns to just five interceptions. He led Oklahoma to a third consecutive Big 12 title and into the College Football Playoff for the second straight year. The No. 2 Sooners will take on No. 3 Georgia in the Rose Bowl on January 1.
Mayfield is the seventh quarterback to confirm his attendance at the pre-draft bowl, along with Mason Rudolph (Oklahoma State), Luke Falk (Washington State), Kurt Benkert (Virginia), Mike White (Western Kentucky), Kyle Lauletta (Richmond) and Brandon Silvers (Troy).
