Jameis Winston, QB, Florida State

Strengths: 

  • Excellent anticipation with every throw. Throws receiver open.
  • Leadership.
  • Ability to make plays with his legs when the pocket collapses.
  • Throws into tight windows.
  • Throws well on the run; especially to his left.
  • 26-1 as a starting QB.
  • Tough
  • Football IQ off the charts
  • Makes reads and adjustments accordingly.

Weaknesses: 

  • OFF THE FIELD
  • Struggled without a redzone threat.
  • Sometimes throws off back foot fading away

Pro comparison: Ben Roethlisberger mixed with Andrew Luck. I struggled here because I wanted to compare Winston strictly to Andrew Luck but my heart wouldn’t let me do it. Winston compares best to Roethlisberger because of his big body frame accompanied with his off the field issues but compares to Luck with his enormous football knowledge and leadership. Winston will also be a first round pick much like the former and latter mentioned above. Winston is a franchise QB with traits that translate into one day being a HOF’er.

2015 NFL team: Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Tennessee Titans, NY Jets, Houston Texans
