It’s the question everyone will be asking until the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are finally at the podium with the first overall pick in April’s NFL draft.
Recent momentum has swung toward Jameis Winston as the favorite to land the top spot, however, in my 2015 mock draft, I have Marcus Mariota as the first overall pick.
I think he’s the right fit for one major reason… on January 8th the Buccaneers officially hired Dirk Koetter as the team’s new offensive coordinator.
Koetter worked eight seasons with Mariota’s current head coach, Mark Helfrich, as part of the same coaching staff at Boise State and Arizona State.
Koetter’s strong connecting with the current Oregon staff might be a telling sign that the Buccaneers already know the direction they are headed.
