Five Takeaways From FSU's Pro Day

Florida State held its Pro Day today and here are my five takeaways from it.

1. Jameis Winston will be the No. 1 pick in the draft.

At least 8-10 Buccaneers officials were in attendance for the Pro Day including head coach Lovie Smith and GM Jason Licht. They spent a large amount of time speaking with Jimbo Fisher and Smith and Licht spent 10-15 minutes with quarterbacks coach Randy Sanders. Afterward Licht and Smith were both very complimentary of Winston’s performance and the vibe was that Winston solidified being taken No. 1 overall.

2. P.J. Williams really helped himself.

PJ Williams dropped in most of the mock drafts after the combine where he ran a 4.57. Today he ran a 4.45. That big of a jump is incredible and could be attributed to working on his technique and get off. With that time, Williams will shoot right back up the boards and jump into the first round.

3. Eddie Goldman solidified himself as a first round pick.

Goldman showed up at the combine at 336 pounds and performed solidly there. Today he did the same. He moved very well and showed great burst off the ball during the drills. He spent quite a bit of time with the Detroit Lions.

4. Tre Jackson continues to move up the draft boards.

He was very good in drills and moved extremely well in the agility portions. He has visits planned with the Buccaneers, Patriots, and Panthers and has already visited the Cowboys. After he was finished with the drills he spent a lot of time with the San Diego Chargers including doing some snapping for them.

5. Cam Erving helped himself during Winston’s throwing session.

All the focus from the media was on Jameis Winston, but when everyone goes back to look at it they will see Cam Erving snapping over a hundred times. This will be helpful for him considering that he had only five games at center his senior year. He’s been talked about as a low first round pick, but he’s been picking up steam lately and could end up as a mid-first rounder.
