Former GM says Jameis Winston is still a first round pick

jameisJameis Winston is 21-0 as a starter at Florida State University, and while he is great on the field, his off the field issues are his problem. Well Phil Savage the former Cleveland Browns general manager still believes that Jameis Winston is still a first round talent.

“With Winston, you have to take the off-field considerations and deal with them,” Savage said, according to the Washington Post. “You can’t ignore them. But in terms of just watching him on film and watching his skill set, you can see it translating to the NFL very easily. The program at Florida State has really responded to him. You can see that. I don’t know if you’d take him with the first pick. But [No.] 3 or 5 or 7 or 11, I think he will [be taken in that range]. These NFL teams are so desperate for someone at that position.”

If Jameis can win the National Championship again, he might be the first quarterback taken.
