Marcus Mariota: ‘Very happy, very blessed to be here – Paul Kuharsky ESPN Titans Reporter
"The Heisman Trophy winner then will turn around Friday night and head for Eugene, Oregon, where he promised a friend he’d attend the Ducks’ spring game.“We’ve got a nice little to-go package for him,” coach Ken Whisenhunt said. “That’s the beauty of the iPads.”"

"And the intrigue surrounding the two Heisman Trophy winners — Winston in 2013, Mariota in 2014 — isn’t likely to fade away any time soon. Time will tell if one or both will open the 2015 season as their respective teams’ starters, but they could face off on the field the very first week of the season, as the Titans are set to visit the Buccaneers in Week 1, on Sunday, Sept. 13."
Mayock: Dorial Green-Beckham looks like ‘a young Randy Moss’ – Mike Huguenin College Football 24/7
"Green-Beckham missed all of the 2014 season after transferring to Oklahoma from Missouri after he was dismissed from the team for repeated off-field issues. His on-field talent, though, appears special, with NFL Media analyst Mike Mayock saying “he looks like a young Randy Moss” during NFL Network’s draft coverage.“He’s a freakish height-weight-speed guy,” Mayock said of the 6-foot-5, 237-pound Green-Beckham, who runs the 40 in 4.49. “The catch radius is off the chart. Route-running? He doesn’t really even need them. The guy tilts the field without knowing how to run a route. …“You either wake up in the morning with that kind of talent or you don’t.”"
Utah lineman Jeremiah Poutasi has chance to start – Jim Wyatt The Tennessean
"Having a chance to block for Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback Marcus Mariota, the team’s first-round pick a day earlier, well, that seemed to thrill him just as much.“I am excited to play for that guy,” Poutasi said of Mariota. “I have seen him play in person, and it is an honor to be on his team. He is a valuable guy, and my job is to not let him get hurt, and not even get touched.”"
