Marcus Mariota at peace with whatever outcome NFL draft brings

Marcus Mariota at peace with whatever outcome NFL draft brings

The Bolts may lose veteran quarterback Philip Rivers - the one who's been unwilling to negotiate an extension of contract, to free agency next year.

Ahead of Washington Redskins were several big decisions, in large part to a quarterback depth chart missing a franchise-defining answer. The Redskins are currently having a May3 deadline on whether to exercise the fifth and final option of the year or not. A source believes the Redskins will exercise the option, but that the outcome of the draft could change things, and whether or not the team lands a quarterback, according to the report from The Washington Post.

A source added that the team has not made that official and it’s the rookie general manager Scot McCloughan, has left open the possibility of using the fifth overall selection in the draft on Marcus Mariota, the Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback, if he remains available.

Despite the glaring needs on defense in the secondary and at pass-rusher, drafting Mariota could certainly be the way to go, not unless Gruden and McCloughan were certain that one of the three can become that.

ESPN revealed that Gruden and the rest of the team’s decision makers, excluded owner Dan Snyder, convinced that the answer is not on the Washington roster right now. That's make Mariota a very real possibility for the team at No. 5.

Clayton told ESPN that Mariota’s not going to fall to Jets at six, the Redskins will take him at five and if Marcus Mariota falls to five, it’s not a position where they're desperate enough to trade up to get him, but if he falls to five, the Redskins will take him.
