Ian Rapoport reports that the Jets are also among the list of teams to meet with Florida State QB Jameis Winston at the Combine.
- Tom Pelissero mentions that while Winston said he hadn’t met with Buccaneers yet, but a team source has said that he’s on their slate of players to interview.
- According to Pelissero, quarterback interviews will wrap up tonight.
Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that Florida State QB Jameis Winston has already with the Buccaneers, Browns, Saints and Rams for 15-minute sessions at the Combine.
The Titans said on Thursday that they planned to meet with Winston in the coming days as well.
A number of teams will meet with players just to speak to them, but it is interesting to hear who they’ve visited with.
The Browns and Rams are both considering all of their available options in the draft and free agency, and some reports have said that they could consider trading up for a quarterback this year.
Some expect the Buccaneers to eventually draft Winston No. 1 overall, based on the fact that he’s considered to be the most pro-ready quarterback in this year’s draft class, and offers plenty of physical ability.
Winston confirmed during his press conference on Friday that he will throw at this year’s Combine, even though reports surfaced earlier in the day that he was dealing with some shoulder “weakness” in his throwing arm.
Since then, Winston, his agent, and quarterbacks coach have all downplayed any issues pertaining to his shoulder.
The former Heisman Trophy winner said that he’s not looking at the Combine as a competition between him and Oregon QB Marcus Mariota.
“My job is to win games and, hopefully, win Super Bowls,” Winston said. “This is not a competition between me and (Marcus) Mariota. One thing about me, I plan on winning the Super Bowl next year so it’s going to be Jameis versus Peyton Manning, and Jameis versus Tom Brady.”
Winston finished the 2014 regular season throwing for 3,559 yards while completing 65.4 percent of his passes to go along with 24 touchdowns and 17 interceptions over the course of 12 games. He also added three rushing touchdowns.
