With the NFL Draft only a few days away, Oregon quarterback Marcus Mariota awaits his fate. Today we rank his potential landing spots.
Imagine what it must be like to sit in that green room at the NFL Draft.
Hope, anticipation, and a mass amount of currency are all topics swirling inside your head.
Then, interestingly enough, you hear Roger Goodell’s voice calling out names that aren’t yours — and the draft day slide begins.
We remember Brady Quinn, Geno Smith, and of course, Aaron Rodgers — all guys who waited in the green room longer than anybody originally thought. Some of these situations worked out, some didn’t, and some are still a work in progress.
A few are predicting this very same fate for Oregon quarterback Marcus Mariota in just a few short days. Of course he won’t last to Day 2, and of course he won’t be in that now infamous green room (as he’ll be at home with family and friends), but you get the idea.

Although most believe he’ll be picked in the Top 10, if not Top 5, we have seen the trials and tribulations some quarterbacks have had to face in Round 1 of the NFL Draft. Because it’s such a critical position in today’s game, the unpredictability surrounding quarterbacks and the draft leads to an equation that is oftentimes maddening.
Despite the daily regurgitation of mock drafts, we all honestly have no clue where Mariota will end up. Considering some of the teams in the Top 10 who already feel confident with their current quarterback situation, even a best guess is a wild one.
There are certain teams in the quarterback market. There are also certain teams, for Mariota, who provide a better situation for success.
