Despite entertaining more offers than Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman, the Tennessee Titans selected Oregon quarterback Marcus Mariota.
The pairing of Mariota and coach Ken Wisenhunt is a match made in heaven. After working wonders on Ben Roethlisberger and Philip Rivers, Wisenhunt will get to groom Mariota into becoming the quarterback to lead the Titans franchise.
While he is more raw than Jameis Winston, Mariota’s “fall” to #2 might be the best case scenario for all involved. The skills may be less NFL-ready, but there is no doubt about the work ethic of Mariota.
