Maurice Jones Drew compares Marcus Mariota to Blaine Gabbert

Maurice Jones-Drew knows about crappy quarterback play, but when he was asked by Bleacher Report, about Marcus Mariota, he compared him to Blaine Gabbert, OUCH…

“Some first-rounders will end up in horrible situations,” Jones-Drew told Bleacher Report. “Some scouts will say that a player fits a system when he clearly doesn’t. Mariota is a good example of that.”

“It wasn’t that Blaine was bad. It was that he was uncomfortable,” Jones-Drew said. “You don’t take Mark Zuckerberg and have him run a construction company. Blaine never adapted to the complicated pro offenses.

“The thing with Mariota is that it will take a long time for him to adjust to the NFL. It will take years. He will have to go to the absolute perfect place. It won’t take (Jameis) Winston as long.”

It sounds like MJD is a Jameis Winston fan….
