Quarterback Baker Mayfield was named team captain of the Cleveland Browns only a year removed being drafted No. 1 overall in the 2018 NFL Draft.

Mayfield, one of three teams captains, took over the team in week three of the 2018 season and led the team to a respectable 7-7 record. The Browns had previously won only a single game in 37 contests.

The former Oklahoma quarterback is joined by linebacker Christian Kirksey and special teamer Charley Hughlett as team captains, the team announced on Friday.

Browns' team captains are elected by their teammates and a fourth will be designated on a week-by-week basis.

The Browns host Tennessee Titans on Sunday at noon on CBS.
