If the Buccaneers decide that Jameis Winston's off-field issues are a result of immature decisions that will develop over time, Tampa should draft him No. 1 overall and keep him in the state of Florida.
Jameis Winston may come up with plenty of off-field concerns but in a division boasting the likes of Drew Brees, Matt Ryan and Cam Newton, Tampa Bay doesn't have much choice but to gamble on the best quarterback in the draft.
The Titans at No. 2 would have a chance to draft the quarterback who doesn't go first overall. However, Tennessee might elect to stick with Zach Mettenberger as the 2015 starter and address another need area.
With much of the NFL's scouting community descending this week on Mobile, Alabama and the annual Senior Bowl, one might think the focus would be on upperclassmen. That won't be the case for teams selecting in the top 10, however.
The popular narrative is that the offensively-starved Tampa Bay Buccaneers have an easy choice with Oregon's Marcus Mariota as the top pick of the 2015 draft. Rather than gamble on a quarterback who may not be a great fit in their offense, defensive minded-head coach Lovie Smith may push for the draft's best player, Southern Cal's Leonard Williams.
