Mike Mayock says Marcus Mariota is a project

Mike Mayock said today that Marcus Mariota is a project for all NFL teams except one.

“It’s not a real good quarterback draft,” Mayock told Philadelphia radio station WPEN-FM, per Philadelphia magazine. “You’ve got two quarterbacks that are head-and-shoulders above everyone else, and even they have their own holes — one on the field (Mariota) and one off the field (Florida State’s Jameis Winston).”

“From a physical trait perspective, he has everything you want,” Mayock said of Mariota. “He’s big, he’s athletic, he’s got great feet and he’s got a live arm. So on the surface, the individual components all work. The problem is he’s a projection coming to the next level because of the pocket awareness, the progressions and the reads.”

Mayock also said that if Eagles officials “think he’s the guy and that they can win a Super Bowl with Marcus Mariota, given people around him and a good defense, then I think they have to try and go get him.”
