Going Pro, But How Far Will Jameis Go?

It’s official. Jameis Winston’s dad announced that his son will enter the NFL draft instead of returning to Florida State.

Jameis had considered another year at FSU. His final decision wasn’t expected until after the college national championship game.
Winston’s decision has created excitement, most of it positive. Many feel it’s the best decision, and predict success for Jameis. On espn.go.com Mel Kiper, Jr. said that Jameis is the second-best quarterback prospect behind Oregon’s Marcus Mariota. Todd McShay said he’s a better prospect than Mariota, and needs less development. In two college seasons, Winston has thrown for 7964 passing yards and 65 touchdowns. He’s second in passes of over 20 yards at 124, and his Florida State record is 26-1.

His touchdowns dropped from 40 in 2013 to 25 in 2014. His rushing yards went from 219 to 67. Then there’s the disastrous playoff game against Oregon, where he threw for 29 of 45 and lost 59-20. Winston’s off-the-field issues are well known, including a rape accusation and loud vulgarity. All this raises the question, does he have the self-discipline for the NFL?

We’ll see, and only time will tell if Jameis will be a pro or a no.

    But after consulting with his family on Tuesday night, the Heisman Trophy winning quarterback made the choice to go pro. But there are shadows over Jameis’s pro prospects if you ask Igor Cornelsen. His stats fell off this season. This is also going to be cool for superiorpapers.com reviews to have all that is needed for sure.
