Titans to host Jameis Winston for private workout

Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

I would say there is a 99% chance that the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are taking Jameis Winston with the first pick.  The only reason that percentage isn't 100 is because of Winston's issues off the field.  His on the field talent is undeniable.  Winston isn't in the can't miss category, but he is a guy that you have to take with the first pick if you need a quarterback.

With all of that being said, the Titans still need to do their homework on Winston.  You never know what is going to happen in the draft.  The Bucs could trade the pick to someone who is in love with Marcus Mariota or take Mariota themselves.  That is why the Titans, according to Pro Football Talk, are bringing Winston in for a private workout.  They need to get to know him so they can make an informed decision if Winston happens to be there when the Titans are on the clock.

Ken Whisenhunt said yesterday on The Midday 180 that the team will also bring Mariota in for a visit.

The idea of having Jameis Winston the football player on the team is exciting.  The idea of having Winston the person on the field is something that would make me extremely nervous.
