KLEMKO: It’s All About the Interviews

Mariota is seeking to separate himself from Jameis Winston as the top quarterback in this year's draft class. He will interview with the New York Jets at the combine.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Philadelphia Eagles and Tennessee Titans are also said to be interested. 

​Mariota will reportedly throw for scouts at the combine this weekend after recovering from a shoulder injury suffered during the season. 

Mariota won the Heisman Trophy as college football's top player in 2014. He threw for 4,454 yards with 42 touchdowns and four interceptions.
