In the history of the NFL Draft, never has there been a player who scouts so truly loved from the perspective of being a sophisticated, NFL-ready quarterback, and simultaneously hated from the perspective of his laundry-list of off-the-field transgressions. Winston’s exuberance and energy as the starting quarterback of the Seminoles simultaneously drew his teammates towards him like a magnet, and made everyone else think of him as an immature, me-first player. That was only exacerbated by the long list of troubles he found himself involved with: allegedly shooting BB guns on campus, screaming a vulgar statement while standing on top of a table in the student union, stealing crab legs from a local grocery store, and most infamously, the sexual assault allegations brought forward by a fellow student. Whether it was for his play on the field, or his mistakes off the field, Winston was always in the spotlight one way or another.
