Default Mariota

Nov 29th playing Oregon State and at half time has thrown for 107 yds 6/10 10.7 and two INTS no TDs. 17-17. Looking pretty rough so far.

Default Re: Mariota

very negative game for his draft stock suggesting it would be in his best interest to return for his Junior season, seek a national championship & earn his degree!

on the flip side there is some outstanding talent on display. Oregon CB, Ifo Ekpre-Olomu is the closest corner to Darrel Revis I've seen in awhile. Disruptive, excellent & physical tackler, playmaker, plus closing speed & position. I think he could crack the top 10.

Oregon State WR Brandon Crooks is amazing slot receiver with all the tools. Strength for size, speed & quickness with a suddenness to separate, a poor mans Tavon Austin. Love that OSU RB Terron Ward, looks like Ray Rice, 5070 205 balance, power, heart. Was wondering if related to Derek Ward but not his brother did play @ Oregon & now safety with Cleveland Browns.

Also should mention local talent, WR Josh Huff could push Posey for 3rd WR on Texan roster & of course DeAnthony Thomas, super elite returner & change of pace RB.

Ok he finally passes for a TD 10/16 159 yds 9.9 and looked pretty good this drive.

It's almost like teams are starting to figure Mariota out, which doesn't bode well for the NFL. The NFL figures you out much more quickly.

Default Mariota Reconsiders Entering the Draft

After stating plans to return, Marcus Mariota requested NFL grade

Quote:
After releasing a statement Dec. 3 of his intentions to return to Oregon, the NFL Advisory Committee has since received Mariota's request for an evaluation, NFLDraftScout.com has confirmed.

...

According to Craig Pintens, Oregon's senior associate athletic director, Mariota requested his grade "the day after the Civil War." When asked today by Portland Sports Radio station 750 The Game if his plans had changed, Mariota said, "To clear any confusion, I'm very blessed and thankful to come back."

Regardless of the actual date Mariota requested his grade from the committee, what has become increasingly clear is that he made his statement without actually learning of his grade. Once he receives the grade -- expected to be a top 15 designation -- Mariota may have a harder time turning down the lure of an NFL paycheck.

...

It isn't difficult to understand why Mariota may want to consider leaving now. The strong-armed, highly athletic passer boasts a more exciting skill-set than any other quarterback potentially available in 2014, including Louisville's Teddy Bridgewater, NFLDraftScout.com's top-rated quarterback at this time.

"Why wouldn't he want to look into [coming out this year]?" one high ranking NFL source said on the condition on anonymity. "[Mariota] could be the first quarterback drafted this year. That may not happen next year."

...

Mariota passed for 3,412 yards and 30 touchdowns against just four interceptions in 2013. He also rushed for 582 yards and nine scores. Mariota didn't play as well down the stretch (four interceptions in last two games) after suffering an injury to his left knee against UCLA but ended the Ducks' regular season in fine form by guiding them to an impressive comeback over rival Oregon State in the Civil War.

Regardless of prior announcements made, underclassmen officially have until Jan. 15 to request early admission into the NFL draft.
I am a big Mariota fan and if he enters it makes the Texans' decision at #1 a tough one.

Yep! From the same website as the OP linked to:

Quote:
12/19/2013 - Mariota confirms he will return to Oregon...Oregon Ducks quarterback Marcus Mariota confirmed he intends to return to the team for at least one more season after it was learned he had requested his grade from the NFL Advisory Committee. Oregon's senior associate athletic director, Craig Pintens, said Mariota requested the grade following the Ducks' victory over Oregon State on Nov. 29. Mariota told 750 The Game radio in Portland, "To clear any confusion, I'm very blessed and thankful to come back."

You mean like Mack reiterating he was staying on as the HC at Texas? His answers will depend on who is asking the question and what he believes they want to hear. He's a politician.

i guess you didn't read that the decision was made for Mack....but yes, he could ultimately change his mind. there are no indications that he will and for his sake, he shouldn't.

He plays tonight in San Antonio against our beloved Texas Longhorns, doubt he approaches performance of Teddy in his bowl game but that is why they play the game. That said, I believe he returns to Oregon for his Junior season.

So am I. I hope he does reconsider. It'd make me feel better with the #1 pick.

He has tools. But he is not nearly as NFL ready as Bridgewater or Mettenberger. I would have him rated as the #3 QB in this draft.

You know who else was NFL ready? Kareem Jackson. I know, makes no difference now, but every time I hear that phrase, I cringe.

As for the topic at hand, if you're going to spend a #1 overall pick on a QB, I want the guy who has the tools to be a superstar (especially upstairs). I don't see that in Bridgewater. I mean, he's a nice QB, but I just don't see superstar in his future. I, like anyone else here, could be wrong, of course. But I'd rather have Mariota.

Bridgewater would be the 4th or 5th best QB in next year's draft.

Default Re: Mariota Reconsiders Entering the Draft

He'll probably stay in school, but Mariota entering the draft would make me heavily lean towards the Clowney->Mettenberger draft plan due to more QBs being available before Zach.
