NFL general managers are reportedly fearful of taking a risk by drafting Marcus Mariota or Jameis Winston in the first round.

The 2015 NFL Draft will feature two blue-chip quarterback prospects in Oregon quarterback Marcus Mariota and Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston.
They have each won a Heisman Trophy in the past two seasons, and they are expected to possibly be taken with the first two picks by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Tennessee Titans.
Both of these teams are in need of a quarterback, as their lack of one led to each of them finishing 2-14.
However, reports are coming out, stating that general managers are afraid to commit to either of them as their franchise signal callers.
“Everyone is fearful. When they draft one, what if they made a mistake? It’s not going to work out too well,” one anonymous NFC coach said to NFL.com.
NFL Network relayed the news of these fears on Twitter.
