Just as chatter begins to build that he might not be the first overall pick in the 2015 NFL Draft, Jameis Winston is meeting with the team picking second.
According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, Winston is in Nashville today to work out for the Titans, and will have a private workout with the Rams in Tallahassee Saturday.
It would be interesting to know whether Tennessee’s apparent reservations about Marcus Mariota (the kind that would cause them to cast their lot with Zach Mettenberger) would be the same if Winston were on the board.
While it’s reasonable to have football concerns about either of them (Winston throws a lot of picks, Mariota hasn’t played in a pro-style offense), Winston would certainly bring the kind of excitement the Titans haven’t had in some time.
That’s not always a good thing, but when you’re bad and boring, the possibility of only being one of those has to be tempting, until you can cross both off the list.
