Mock draft from NFL.com says Ducks QB Mariota will be drafted 18th

EUGENE, OR (KPTV) - Most Oregon Ducks fans likely expect Heisman-winning quarterback Marcus Mariota to be the first pick in the NFL Draft this spring, but a mock draft posted on NFL.com suggests a very different line of thinking from NFL teams. Mariota is predicted to be drafted with the 18th pick, according to the mock draft from NFL Media analyst Bucky Brooks. That would mean he'll go to the Kansas City Chiefs, where Brooks writes "Given Andy Reid's reputation for developing quarterbacks, Kansas City would be the ideal spot for Mariota to grow into a franchise player." And what about Mariota's Rose Bowl opponent, Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston? Brooks predicts he'll be taken with the No. 1 pick by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
