The NFL scouting combine starts on Tuesday and every fan will be looking to see who their teams main targets will do.

This year all eyes will be on the positional competition at quarterback between Oregon's Marcus Mariota and Florida State's Jameis Winston.

The two men make for two of the most exciting quarterbacks to come through the draft in recent years.

With the number one pick belonging to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers - a team much in need of a quarterback, it seems impossible that the first pick in 2015 won't be a quarterback.

Mariota vs Winston has been the biggest match in college football for the last year and fans finally got to see the two go head to head in Rose Bowl.


Mariota won that day but will he win the race to become the number one overall draft pick in 2015.

Well America has spoken on the issue and one clear name stands out amongst the other and could be the biggest insight into who is likely to move first come May.

ESPN asked the question 'Which QB would you rather have?' and the NFL fans have put one name as the essential.

Winning with a massive 71% of the 533,000+ votes, Marcus Mariota is clearly the more desired quarterback.

He may only have 71% of the votes, but every state in America is decided that Mariota should be the stand out candidate.

A big draft year

We are in for a big year at the 2015 NFL draft and from every angle we could look at it, there are several points of interest.

The Buccaneers who have the first pick are in desperate need of a quarterback - particularly since they have recently released Josh McCown.

As much as the Buccaneers need a quarterback, rumours are rife that the Cleveland Browns are set to make a play for the number one pick.

With Brian Hoyer set to hit free agency this year, that would leave Cleveland with last years big name rookie sensation Johnny Manziel.

Manziel may not have impressed in his short playing time last year, but he undoubtedly shows potential and the question is, even if the Browns trade up, will they opt for another rookie quarterback?
