2015 NFL Mock Draft

Florida State QB Jameis Winston could be the first player selected in the 2015 NFL Draft.

Imaging the marketing potential for Winston cigarettes if it wouldn't break every rule in the book.
(R.J. Reynolds)

If it weren't against NCAA and NFL rules, or the terms of the Tobacco Master Settlement Agreement, or the changing social norms of the day, or the reality of lung cancer, Florida State QB Jameis Winston and R.J. Reynolds could come together in a clever advertising or promotional partnership. "Winston plays good like a quarterback should."

Err, on second thought, maybe that's not such a good idea.

But the reality is that Winston won't need tobacco company money once he makes it to the NFL. He has made an instant impact in college football in 2013 as a redshirt freshman, managing to replace the solid E.J. Manuel and show poise and savvy well beyond his years. Plus at 6'4" 240 he has NFL quality size, and he has as good a chance as anyone at this point of being the #1 overall pick in the 2015 NFL Draft.
