Heading into the 2015 NFL draft Justin Simmons Jersey , pretty much everyone agreed that quarterbacks Jameis Winston and Marcus Mariota were the top two players. But not everyone agreed on the order between the top two.
As it turned out, the Buccaneers took Winston first overall, and the Titans took Mariota second. Now the person who was running Tennessee’s scouting says the Titans were ecstatic that the Bucs chose the quarterback Tennessee saw as the lesser of the two.
Picking Mariota was “an easy choice at that time Kawann Short Jersey ,” former Titans director of scouting Blake Beddingfield told Paul Kuharsky of 104.5 The Zone.
Beddingfield said the Titans might have settled for Winston if the Bucs had taken Mariota, but they were definitely convinced on draft day that they were getting the better of the two players.
Of course, Beddingfield may come across as a little self-serving saying that now Walter Payton Jersey , after Winston has been suspended three games for groping an Uber driver. But Beddingfield made similar comments a year ago. And character was one of the primary arguments at the time for preferring Mariota over Winston: Mariota had a squeaky-clean image, while Winston had been accused of rape at Florida State, in addition to other off-field issues.
It’s now easy to see why weighing character as well as on-field performance made Mariota the superior pick.

Attorney Tanya Mitchell Graham says in a statement to news outlets that her client was physically assaulted Tuesday morning by a man who entered the home with no signs of forced entry. The man demanded specific items of jewelry that had been gifted to her from McCoy Ricardo Louis Jersey , who had requested them back on many occasions.
The Associated Press is not identifying the woman, pending further details of the attack.
McCoy and the woman have been in court over his attempts to evict her from the home.
An image of the ex-girlfriend's bloodied and beaten face was shown in a social media post blaming McCoy for the assault. The football player denied the allegations Tuesday.
