“We’ll see, I’m not too sure,” he said, via NFL.com. “The opportunity to leave obviously is there, but at the same time, college is fun and I’m not sure what I’m going to do yet.”

The good news for Mariota is that he’s already earned his degree.

“I’m done,” he added. “I have two or three credits left in the fall, but that will be left for like yoga and golf class.”

jameiswinston.jpgFlorida State quarterback Jameis Winston spoke to reporters at the Manning Passing Academy and hinted that he just might wait until he gets his degree before he heads to the NFL.

“I’m not really worried about that,” Winston said regarding his dad’s comments this offseason. “I’m just focusing on the season right now, because this year is going to be one to remember.”

Winston stressed how important it is to him to get a degree.

“It’s very important to me. I was always raised as a student first and an athlete second,” Winston said. “I think that’s the main purpose in college. Some athletes lose that perspective. It’s about being a student-athlete, and not just getting that easy money and going to the league. Even if kids leave early, I would want them to come back and get that degree.”

Winston needs to stay in school as long as possible so he can work on his sloppy mechanics.  He won’t be able to run around in the NFL and make plays the way he does at FSU.

According to Rand Getlin of Yahoo! Sports, Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston has taken out a large disability and “loss of value”  insurance policy policy.

Florida State University quarterback and Heisman Trophy winner Jameis Winston has purchased a large disability and “loss of value” policy that provides him with $8 million to $10 million in insurance coverage, a source close to the situation told Yahoo Sports.

According to the source, Winston is the first returning Heisman Trophy winner since former Oklahoma quarterback Sam Bradford to purchase preseason loss of value coverage, though other returning winners have purchased “total permanent disability” coverage during that time frame. Winston’s policy is based on a projection that he will be selected in the top 10 of the 2015 NFL draft and would theoretically pay out if he fell out of the first round due to injury or illness.

Getlin also reported that experts claim college athletes who take out insurance policies like this typically go pro the following year.  This is very interesting since Winston’s father thinks his son will finish school before he heads to the NFL.

Jameis Winston’s father told AL.com that his son is going to stick around and play another two years at Florida State and get his degree before he heads to the NFL.

“We want Jameis to succeed with one more year in baseball and two more years in football,” said Antonor Winston.  “We’ve never strayed from our plan that he is going to be in college until he gets that degree.”

I can’t wait to see what Winston’s dad thinks when NFL agents are telling his son he’ll be the top pick in next years NFL Draft.  Not that it’s a sure thing,  but there will be plenty of pressure for him to turn pro.

“From last season alone, I should’ve been in the first three rounds. SEC Defensive Player of the Year, All-American,” Sam said, per CBS St. Louis.

The frustration mounted for Sam as the hours and rounds passed by, but he felt he would be picked.

“I knew I was going to get picked somewhere. Every team that passed me, I was thinking how I’m going to sack their quarterback,” Sam said.

Before Sam came out and admitted he’s gay,  he was projected as a late-round pick that might not even get drafted.  He’s lucky the Rams took him.

The Seattle Seahawks were discouraged when the Patriots took Florida defensive tackle with the 29th overall pick, which is why they ended up trading out of the first round all together.

According to NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport, it was Florida defensive tackle Dominique Easley, who was taken by thePatriots with the 29th pick.

Seahawks defensive coordinator Dan Quinn coached Easley at Florida and still carried a torch for the disruptive interior pass rusher.

When Easley came off the board, Seattle’s war room reportedly exhibited an “air of deflation.”

The Seahawks ended up taking former Colorado wide receiver Paul Richardson with their first pick of the draft, which came in the second round.

The Houston Texans and new head coach Bill O’Brien finally took a quarterback in this year’s draft.

Houston took Pitt quarterback Tom Savage in the fourth round.

Savage (6-foot-4 1/4, 228) was originally a four-star recruit to Rutgers, but lost his starting job to someone named Chas Dodd and transferred to Arizona. ‘Cats coach Rich Rodriguez’s spread-option offense didn’t suit Savage, so he transferred yet again, finally landing on his feet at Pitt. He started one season for the Panthers, compiling a 21:9 TD-to-INT ratio and 61.2% completion rate. His career record was 17-11. Savage was a college underachiever, but possesses NFL-caliber arm strength and size, and pro evaluators are more concerned with traits than college stats. He’s a 24-year-old project. Savage was awarded with plenty of buzz and ultimately landed in the fourth-round. He has a ways to go, but Bill O’Brien might be a believer.

The New York Giants used their fourth round pick on Boston College running back Andre Williams.

This is a great pick for the Giants who need help at running back even though they have David Wilson and Rashad Jennings.

Jennings is a good solid back but is approaching 30 years of age and Wilson’s future is still uncertain.

Vikings rookie quarterback Teddy Bridgewater told reporters on Friday he’ll definitely be wearing his gloves when he plays in the NFL.

As silly as it is,  you can probably blame some of Bridgewater’s draft day slide on his poor pro day, in which he chose not to wear gloves while throwing the ball.

jerry jonesCowboys owner Jerry Jones told reporters today that while Johnny Manziel was the highest rated player on their board when they were picking in the first round,  they can’t afford to invest in him after giving so much money to Tony Romo.

“The one sure thing was that if he were a Cowboy this morning, it was going to absolutely be not only everything and what he is in the NFL and what have you, but there was no question it was going to be Romo and him in some form or fashion in every conversation,” Jones said. “There was no way it couldn’t have been that.

“Of course, as far as their ability to practice, come to meetings, be team players and what have you, I really know Romo too well, and look at his situation, and that would have worked. That was something to think about but not necessarily to worry about.

“At the end of the day, where we are is that there’s no way we’re not going to be without Romo for the next four, five, six, whatever you want to say years.”

Jones admitted that Manziel is too much of a celebrity.

“It was too significant for him to be an insurance policy,” Jones said Friday night. “There’s just too much dynamic here for him, for the franchise, for everybody. That’s just too much for insurance, and it’s not the usual development guy behind an accomplished quarterback. He’s a celebrity. He’s Elvis Presley.”

Jones is absolutely right and this explains why they chose to pass on Manziel.
