NFL Notes: Jameis Winston, Marcus Mariota, Draft, Cardinals, Saints


Jameis Winston

  • The Titans announced that they’re hosting Florida State QB Jameis Winston for a visit on Monday.
  • Albert Breer reports that Winston will work out for the Rams later in the week and has a trip scheduled to meet with the Jets.

Marcus Mariota

  • Albert Breer reports that Oregon QB Marcus Mariota will work out for the Chargers on Wednesday, and the Rams later in the week.


An NFL evaluator tells Jason La Canfora that  Florida State DL Mario Edwards Jr. could end up being a surprise first-round pick this year.

Why aren’t any of you guys writing about Mario Edwards?” the evaluator asked. “I look around the Internet at these mock drafts and I don’t think I’ve seen him in the first round in one of them. He’s not showing up in any of them. I think you’re missing on him. He’s going to surprise some people. I think he goes in the first round. In this [not overly talented] draft, he’s definitely a first-rounder for me.”

According to La Canfora, Edwards could come off the board anywhere from No. 11 –  No. 19 overall.

  • Garafolo adds that Fisher has previously visited with the Dolphins.
