There is no doubt that Marcus Mariota is one of the most talented quarterbacks in the NFL already, but whether he is a great fit for the Tennessee Titans remains to be seen.

The Titans offense is more of a pro-style offense that would suit a quarterback who likes to remain in the pocket and a QB who is most effective when in the pocket, or that's at least what Tennessee's offense was like until this week.

Draft experts claimed Mariota was a terrible fit for the Titans pre-draft, but it now looks as though Tennessee are doing all they can to get the best out of the dual-threat quarterback.

Huge change

The latest reports detail how the Titans plan to adapt to accommodate Mariota, with Tennessee about to operate with a much changed offensive playbook.

Speaking to NFL Network on the show Path To The Draft on Monday, Titans general manager Ruston Webster revealed that head coach Ken Whisenhunt and his staff have already begun the process of tailoring their offense to fit Mariota's strengths.

"Our coaches have been working on a plan for quite some time now for Marcus," Webster told NFL Network. "Really to adapting our offense to his skill set -- he has a special skill set.

Majorly talented

Furthermore, Webster praised Mariota's football intelligence and he insists that there is not much the former Oregon Ducks quarterback can't do.

"There's really not much he can't do from physical standpoint and he's very bright. That combination is going to allow him to do his own adapting to the NFL game but our coaches have worked very hard on coming up with a system within our system for Marcus. I think it will work."
