The 2015 Rose Bowl is an NFL scout's dream with two talent-laden teams led by future first round quarterbacks. The talent extends far beyond Mariota and Winston, however, as nearly two dozen Florida State and Oregon prospects are currently projected by NFLDraftScout.com as potential 2015 draft picks.
While most of the conference championships turned into blowouts, Georgia Tech gave Winston and the Seminoles quite a scare. Proving yet again that he has rare on-field poise, Winston guided Florida State to the win. He did, however, get some noteworthy help, including from fellow projected first round pick, cornerback P.J. Williams.
Winston and the Florida State Seminoles beat the rival Florida Gators 24-19 but the projected top five pick threw a career-high four interceptions in the narrow victory. What led to Winston's mistakes? NFLDraftScout.com breaks down the four turnovers.
NFL scouts were the ones given treats on this Halloween Eve as exciting prospects from Florida State (including Winston and cornerback P.J. Williams) and Louisville (Parker and several others) each demonstrated exciting next-level talent.
