I definitely understand why a team would take Mariota first and would be on board with the Bucs doing so. That said, Winston is the best college QB that I've ever seen at doing NFL quarterback things. If he matures and keeps everything together off the field, I have no doubt he'll be an excellent NFL QB.

The highlighted was echoed by Chris Carter.  He said some receiving corp is really going to benefit from the way Winston approaches the game pre-snap.  He said Winston knows exactly what his receivers options are and adjusts his reads accordingly.  Very few before him have been as ready to play day one in the pros as Winston.  Passing on him will become more and more unlikely as we get closer to the draft for anyone with the #1 pick.

Please wait…
