    One of Winston’s greatest areas of scrutiny was his alarming amount of interceptions.  He is going to make plenty of mistakes, but he also has a bit of a gunslingers mentality.  He is not going to automatically check down if Evans or Jackson are covered.  I think he will allow them to make plays on the ball.  This is one of the things that convicted me about winston being the pick.  He is aggressive and guys will rally around him because he will allow them to make the play. Jackson and Evans were visibly frustrated with the QB’s last year.  I don’t want a robot as a QB in a WC offense.  I think this is going to be a fun wild ride.  Now about the offensive line…….

    I wouldn’t call it a strength, but that’s why you sign 6-5 guys, to let them make a play on the ball.  I think winston will certainly do that.

    I think the problem with this narrative is most of Winston’s INT’s didn’t come from DB’s catching 50/50 contested passes. A lot of them was him not recognizing linebackers underneath dropping back into coverage.

    High INT’s coupled with low TD output is not a gunslinger.

      65td 28 int in his college career.  I would not call it a low td output

    but most of the INTs did come once he lost his 6-5 target.

    If Winston played 2014 like he did in 2013 we would not be discussing the first overall pick, it would be a given. He regressed last year. Blame his team, his coach, the talent or whatever you want but throwing 24 TD's and 18 int's in your capstone NCAA season is not impressive.

    Mariota, 104 TD's 14 int, less INT's in his 3 year career than Winston in 14.

    Seriously, have you even watched Mariota film. I like the kid, a lot. But Mariota, for the most part, threw into wide open spaces which was a product of the system he was in. Not saying he didn't make some good throws, but the vast majority of throws were to WIDE open targets. Just pick one of his highlight reels. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ku9bP5ZAkWY

    He did and threw a gang of picks but that was the WRs fault. I forgot.
