Just minutes after Kyler Murray was drafted No. 1 overall, another Oklahoma product, Baker Mayfield, decided to weigh in. It appears there's a bit of a friendly rivarly brewing between these two, as Mayfield congratulated Murray, only to troll him seconds later.

After congratulating him, Mayfield playfully reminded Murray the Cleveland Browns play the Arizona Cardinals on December 15.

Mayfield won the Heisman trophy with the Sooners in 2017, and Murray won the trophy with Oklahoma the following season. Both players also ended up going No. 1 overall in back-to-back seasons, so there are some striking similarities here.

But because these two played at the same school, we never got to see them face off against one another. While the Browns are clearly the more talented team, the matchup between Mayfield and Murray could be one to remember.
