The Film Room: Is Marcus Mariota Worth A Top 15 Pick?

New, comments

If it looks like a Duck and scores like a Duck, it must be a shoe in for a high pick in the 2015 NFL Draft, right? Don't be so sure.

With just a couple days to go before the start of the first field drills in the 2015 NFL Combine, I thought I would break down one of the most highly anticipated athletes to come out of this year’s crop of Draft hopefuls – Marcus Mariota. A gifted physical specimen with an unreal combination of speed and agility for his position, most expect Mariota to put on a show at the annual Spandex Olympics this weekend and solidify himself as a top five pick. But does Mariota really deserve that distinction? I dove into the film and watched Mariota seemingly eradicate the ultra-talented Florida State defense to make that judgment for myself.

The results may surprise you.
