Grading the NFL’s Top Draft Picks – Winston vs. Mariota – It’s not often that two marquee, collegiate quarterbacks get drafted one and two consecutively in the NFL Draft. However, that’s just what football fans and collectors witnessed this past spring. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers selected Florida State’s Jameis Winston, number one overall, leaving Oregon’s Marcus Mariota for the Tennessee Titans at number two.

With the 2015 NFL regular season, now complete and neither team making the post season, now is the time to take a look at how the two fared, both on the field statistically and off the field with the performance of their rookie cards.
