Peter King is the latest to jump on the Marcus Mariota to the Tennessee Titans in a mock draft train. His reasoning is that Ken Whisenhunt gets a gleam in his eye when he talks about Mariota. Maybe The Whiz should go into acting once he gets done with football coaching (possibly after this season). I'm still not buying that there is love for Mariota from Whiz, but I am quickly becoming in the minority.
Here is what King had to say about the pick:
I’m going mostly by the look in coach Ken Whisenhunt’s eyes when he talked about the pick last week at the league meetings. Pretty scientific, huh? Well, that plus his nominal starter is Zach Mettenberger. Plus Whisenhunt’s job will be on the line with another fourth-place finish in a bad division.
I am currently in the middle of listening to Daniel Jeremiah's podcast "Marcus Matiota 360." What I have heard so far has been really good. It is an extremely comprehensive breakdown of Mariota on and off the field. You should give it a listen.
