Florida State's quarterback, Jameis Winston had a year to remember in 2013. The red-shirt sophomore won the national championship and the Heisman Trophy. However, after his latest off-the-field troubles, one NFL scout believes Winston may not be the sure fire first rounder in 2015.

As reported by Bleacher Report, one scout from the league said:“When I heard about this, I was stunned. He was the top overall pick next year. Was. Not any more...This latest thing shows a continuation of bad judgment. I don’t trust him, and I can tell you very few teams in the NFL will trust him.”

Yesterday at around 10PM, Winston was given a citation for shoplifting over $30 worth of seafood from a supermarket in Florida. This news will certainly trouble NFL scouts as they attempt to give the star QB a draft grade before next season.

This citation comes on top of the serious rape allegations that troubled the passer for the tail end of last season. Winston was eventually cleared of the allegations, but rumors have persisted over whether the investigation was conducted in a thorough manner.

Winston has been handed a suspension by the Florida State baseball team, which he is also a member of. It remains to be seen whether the football program will also look to discipline it's young star.
