The 2015 NFC Draft Class made their way to the Pro Football Hall of Fame last Saturday after the NFL’s Rookie Symposium wrapped up. According to the Pro Football Hall of Fame’s website, Bucs rookie quarterback Jameis Winston came away impressed.
“I’ve been able to just sit back and see all of this history and see all of the things that happened before my time. [It] has just been amazing,” Winston said after touring the Hall of Fame.
Former Oregon QB Marcus Mariota was also impressed and gave an interview about what he learned.
Both Winston and Mariota have impressed their teams since being drafted with the first two picks back on April 30 in the NFL Draft. Will either one of them ever have a bust in the Hall? Only time will tell, but it is still great to see the two young quarterbacks showing their respect to the ones who paved the way.
