As the Buccaneers try to create the impression there’s still a decision to be made, they’re getting a side-by-side look at the top two quarterback prospects in this class.
After putting Oregon’s Marcus Mariota through a private workout yesterday, the Bucs came back across country last night so they could be back in Tallahassee for a workout with Jameis Winston this morning, via Albert Breer of NFL Media.
The same five team officials from yesterday’s trip (General Manager Jason Licht, head coach Lovie Smith, director of player personnel Jon Robinson, offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter and quarterbacks coach Mike Bajakian) will be there to put Winston through his paces.
Again, it seems almost certain the Bucs have settled on Winston, and the next three weeks are just a chance to make sure he doesn’t do anything to change their mind.
After a lengthy pro day workout and the information they’ve already collected, the more interesting question might be what more is being gleaned from today’s session, whether it’s a set of throws they want to see him make, or whether they’re just watching the way he works when he’s not surrounded by cameras.
