NFL Mock Draft 2015: Titans and Jameis Winston (Again!)

I have a feeling we are going to see this a lot between now and April.  I pray that it doesn't happen, but mock drafts are going to continue to link the Titans with Jameis Winston until there is a reason for them not too.  This week it is Rob Rang of CBS Sports who has the Titans taking Winston.  His comments:

The Titans have lost eight straight and current quarterbacks Jake Locker, Charlie Whitehurst and Zach Mettenberger has thus far been unable to prove that any are the club's long-term solution at the position. It is hard to imagine general manager Ruston Webster looking past Winston's off-field issues. From purely a football standpoint, however, Winston projects quite well in Ken Whisenhunt's offense and there is no question that he's a top 5 talent.
If it is hard to imagine Webster looking past the off-field issues, then why are you mocking him to the Titans here? Look, we can around and around about Winston, and his talent is hard to argue (although he has been really bad at times this year) but the fact remains that he is to much of a risk to take in the 2nd spot.

Give me the best defensive player in the draft here, whoever you think that is, and get some talent around Zach Mettenberger. I would much rather ride with that team than one ran by Winston.
