Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston performed very well at last week’s scouting combine, especially during the throwing sessions and in meetings with teams. The current thinking is that the quarterback-needy Tampa Bay Buccaneers will select Winston with the No. 1 pick in the 2015 NFL Draft. Reports suggest the Bucs believe that Winston’s numerous off-field incidents can be chalked up to immaturity.
Apparently, Tampa Bay’s brass currently feels that Winston isn’t a bad kid, he’s just young and stupid. The Bucs seem willing to stake their future on the 2013 Heisman Trophy winner because they think he will grow up and become a great leader. I’m not sure I agree with that assessment, but it is certainly a possibility.
