Marcus Mariota has always been a very accurate quarterback, but the former Duck quarterback now has his receivers and tight end in a better mood. Delanie Walker was impressed by the rookie.
“You could tell he was training this offseason, really in the playbook,” said tight end Delanie Walker, per ESPN.com’s Paul Kuharsky. “He called the huddle with poise, said the plays like he knew them, ran the offense very well. That’s exciting to see when you’ve got a young quarterback coming in and ready to go.”
Harry Douglas is another receiver that was very impressed by his skills. Douglas gushed over the No. 2 overall pick’s “unbelievable accuracy,” while Titans receivers coach Shawn Jefferson recently called Mariota “deadly accurate”, per NFL.com
It sounds like Mariota could be a steal for the Titans, but until a defense is running at him, I cannot comment.
