There was a quote from an anonymous scout regarding Florida State’s Jameis Winston that ruffled a few feathers today. Some of the feathers ruffled came from ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith and Skip Bayless.
Both Smith and Bayless discussed the quote from said scout on First Take Monday afternoon which was quoted by the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
“Someone will take him in the first round, but how could you even let that guy in the building?” another scout said. “The second law of thermodynamics basically is the more ways something can happen, the more likely it is to happen. That’s true of players. The more ways they can (expletive) up, the more chances they (expletive) up. This guy’s got a lot of stuff that would lean him more likely to be a bust than a good player.”
Now that sounds similar to Twitter rants from former NFL scout Greg Gabriel who now writes for the National Football Post. In his breakdown on NFP, which can be read here, he ends it by saying he wouldn’t draft Winston at all.
You can watch both Smith and Bayless discuss the quote in the video below as well as make a case for drafting Winston first overall, calling it a “no-brainer”..
