Could the Buccaneers make waves and draft Marcus Mariota?

Ron Jaworski does not have the best sources, but he obviously has some and who knows they might know something.  According to Jaws, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are leaning toward drafting Marcus Mariota over Jameis Winston.

“The latest I’m hearing now from my sources around the league, who are pretty wired in, is that he’s going to go No. 1 now to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers,” Jaworski said.

Although most draft experts have had Winston rated higher than Mariota, Jaworski said things are changing.

“Mariota’s stock, remember it was quiet for a while?” Jaworski said. “And there’s a reason for that. There’s a lull every year until about 30 days before the draft. Now the coaches get involved. Prior to that, it’s the scouts, it’s the roadies that are filling out the paper work. Now the coaches get involved. Now team owners get involved. Now general managers get involved. So you’re starting to see, in my opinion, Winston’s stock starting to slide a little bit and Mariota’s stock starting to go up a little bit.”
