    Heading into the 2015 NFL draft [url=http://www.thedolphinsfootballauthentic.com/albert-wilson-jersey-authentic]Youth Albert Wilson Jersey[/url] , pretty much everyone agreed that quarterbacks Jameis Winston and Marcus Mariota were the top two players. But not everyone agreed on the order between the top two.

    As it turned out, the Buccaneers took Winston first overall, and the Titans took Mariota second. Now the person who was running Tennessee’s scouting says the Titans were ecstatic that the Bucs chose the quarterback Tennessee saw as the lesser of the two.

    Picking Mariota was “an easy choice at that time,” former Titans director of scouting Blake Beddingfield told Paul Kuharsky of 104.5 The Zone.

    Beddingfield said the Titans might have settled for Winston if the Bucs had taken Mariota, but they were definitely convinced on draft day that they were getting the better of the two players.

    Of course [url=http://www.newyorkjetsteamonline.com/sam-darnold-jersey]Authentic Sam Darnold Jersey[/url] , Beddingfield may come across as a little self-serving saying that now, after Winston has been suspended three games for groping an Uber driver. But Beddingfield made similar comments a year ago. And character was one of the primary arguments at the time for preferring Mariota over Winston: Mariota had a squeaky-clean image, while Winston had been accused of rape at Florida State, in addition to other off-field issues.

    It’s now easy to see why weighing character as well as on-field performance made Mariota the superior pick.
    Chiefs safety Eric Berry is doubtful for Sunday's game against the Chargers in Los Angeles after missing most of training camp and all four preseason games with a heel injury.

    Chiefs trainer Rick Burkholder and coach Andy Reid said this week that Berry was "literally day to day," but he did not take part in any practices. That makes it unlikely that Berry [url=http://www.officialhockeyrangersshop.com/authentic-adidas-kevin-shattenkirk-jersey]Kevin Shattenkirk Jersey[/url] , who missed most of last season with a ruptured Achilles tendon, will play in the Chiefs' regular-season opener.

    His absence is a big one for Kansas City, which also is missing safety Daniel Sorensen to a broken bone in his leg. Ron Parker is expected to start at one safety spot a week after resigning with the team, and Eric Murray and rookie Armani Watts will handle the other position.

    Berry was the only play to show up on the Chiefs' injury report.
