In 2013, Ron Jaworski gave ESPN roughly 72 hours of content by declaring that Colin Kaepernick could be one of the greatest quarterbacks of all time.  And so it makes sense for ESPN to try to get some extra mileage from Jaworski’s latest proclamation that the Buccaneers will take Marcus Mariota with the first overall…
