Jets check out Jameis Winston's impressive pro day

General manager Mike Maccagnan, coach Todd Bowles and offensive coordinator Chan Gailey led the New York Jets' contingent Tuesday at the Florida State pro day, where they scouted a player that won't be available when they pick -- quarterback Jameis Winston.

Winston, the presumptive No. 1 overall pick, received generally positive reviews for his throwing performance at the workout. He made 102 scripted passes, about 30 more than a typical quarterback pro day. Many of the passes were thrown on the run, as Winston wanted to show critics it's not a weakness in his game. At one point, he appeared winded and missed some throws, but he rallied in a red zone drill at the end of the workout.

Based on their pro days, Winston left no doubt he has a stronger arm than Marcus Mariota, the No. 2 quarterback prospect. For the most part, Winston threw tight spirals with excellent velocity. But, as we all know, quarterbacking isn't a just a gun show.

Barring a change of heart, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are expected to take Winston with the first pick. Team officials have said they're not concerned about his off-the-field issues. Asked why the Bucs should take him, he told reporters, "Because I'm the best player in the draft."

No one said he's bashful.

There's a good chance both quarterbacks will be off the board for the Jets, who own the No. 6 pick. Some experts see Mariota going as high as No. 2 to the Tennessee Titans -- or a team willing to move up in a trade. Could the Jets move up? It probably will be a cost-prohibitive move to go from six to two.

Nevertheless, they will continue to investigate. Maccagnan indicated last week he'd like to have a private workout with Winston. They already had one with Mariota.
