How much input could Sterling Shepard have on Mayfield?

Emlen'sGremlins : 3/12/2018 12:53 pm
They had a very productive season together in 2015 at Oklahoma.

Mayfield: 3,700 Yards, 36 TDs, 7 INTs, 173 Passer Rating
Shepard: 1,300 Yards, 11 TDs

Do you think the Mayfield-Shepard connection could influence our pick at #2, BBI?

Maybe if they were to draft him that will be thought of

And no. Big OU fan but I don't think the FO relies on players much in their evaluations. Different worlds.
ZERO input

he's not the second best prospect.
If you were a boss...

would you really trust an employee's opinion about a friend?

Are they friends? Never ready many Shepard interview, no idea if he has even mentioned Mayfield.

It wouldn't stop me from asking for an opinion. People ask you for references about yourself on all sorts of things from job applications to renting an apartment.
As a character reference

So somewhere between "none" and "very little".
In any case, being that they drafted Shepard

The Giants have been looking at Baker Mayfield footage for two college seasons. I'm sure they have plenty of info to work with given that the scouting process would have taken them to Oklahoma coaches and trainers and such.
It would be stupid to not ask Shepard about how he feels

about a QB who the team may draft with the 2nd overall pick.. You don't simply base your answer on what Shepard says but you ask him about personal stuff that only a team mate may know.. and if you have an in house person who may be able to provide some info.. you definitely make a 20 min call to find out..
I don't think the answer is zero

I think if you are considering Mayfield at all you might want to ask for an honest assessment of how he was as a teammate. I think you leave the on-field assessment up to the scouts and your player-personnel team.

Very little is probably the answer.

not even a sliver.
Sterling Shepard overheard...
