Jameis Winston shouldn't go number one says ESPN's Ron Jaworski

Jameis Winston seems to be the consensus first overall pick in the upcoming 2015 NFL Draft.

The former Florida State Seminoles star looks destined to be the first name called out on draft night by Roger Goodell, with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers desperate need for a new quarterback and Winston being the most pro ready of any of the current stars.

However, one ESPN analyst has sent out a warning to Tampa Bay, telling them to steer clear of the troubled 21-year old.

Flawed Footage

Ron Jaworski appeared on the Mike and Mike show earlier today, and said that he does not believe that Winston is reliable enough on the field to make him a surefire number one overall pick.

“I’ve studied a lot of him, I think Jameis Winston has a big upside in the NFL, but there are some real flaws to his game,” Jaworski said. “Quite honestly, I would not take him at that No. 1 pick.”

On-Field Problems

“I’m not talking about the off-the-field stuff. I have no comment on that because I’m not privy to that kind of information. But there are certainly mechanical flaws in his game that are troubling to me,” Jaworski said.

At the moment it looks like Winston is gearing up to become a Buccaneer, but if what Jaworski says is true, then their scouting team and coaches will start to find a lot more stuff they don't like on his game tape rather than his rap sheet.
