Titans selected Oregon QB Marcus Mariota with the No. 2 overall pick in the 2015 draft.
Mariota (6'4/222) was the 2014 Heisman winner, finishing his three-year career as a 66.8-percent passer with a 105:14 TD-to-INT ratio. He added 29 rushing TDs and is an elite athlete for the position, running 4.52 at the Combine with a 36-inch vertical and 10-foot-1 broad jump. Mariota took just five snaps from center in 2014 and was infrequently required to make throws into tight windows or with anticipation in Oregon's spread. He does have adequate arm strength and above-average accuracy. A poised, intelligent (33 Wonderlic), high-character prospect, Mariota's career seems more likely to go the way of Russell Wilson or Cam Newton's than failed or plateauing dual-threat QBs Colin Kaepernick, RG3, and Jake Locker. If he doesn't cleanly beat out Zach Mettenberger for the Week 1 starting job, it'll be a major disappointment for the franchise. Apr 30 - 8:24 PM
