Ken Whisenhunt says Marcus Mariota is day one starter if he is the pick

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

Jim Corbett of USA Today had a chance to catch up with Ken Whisenhunt today at the coach's meeting.  He asked about the expectation of Marcus Mariota if he is the #2 overall pick for the Tennessee Titans.  Here is what Whiz had to say:

Now Whiz later clarified his statement to Mike Garafolo of FOX Sports:

I have no earthly idea what the Titans are thinking right now, but they are doing a pretty good job of selling people that they are really interested in Mariota.  He still doesn't seem like a fit for the type of quarterback that Whisenhunt wants, but maybe Ruston Webster sees his overall potential and is ready to take him.
