Our friend, Dan Kadar (who will not be my friend anymore if he doesn't stop with this pick), has put out a new mock draft today and he has the Titans taking Jameis Winston, QB, Florida State. Here is what he had to say about the pick:
Despite a report to the contrary, the Titans shouldn’t be content with Zach Mettenberger knowing that they can get a quarterback like Winston in the first round. It’s true that Winston has some decision making issues – on the field and off it – but when he’s on, he’s the best player in college football. If he can turn it on in the NFL like he often did at Florida State, he could be the second coming of Ben Roethlisberger.
It does seem fitting to compare Winston and Roethlisberger....both on and off the field.
I really, really hope that Winston shines in his performance at the combine in the interview rooms and in the workout. The Titans really need a team to fall in love with him and want to trade up and get him. That would be the best of both worlds.
If they don't trade the pick, they need to get a pass rusher.
