  • Could Jimbo Fisher's opinion on JaMarcus Russell be hurting Jameis Winston's draft stock?

    When JaMarcus Russell was at LSU, Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher was his offensive coordinator. While it's been more than seven years since Russell was taken No. 1 overall in the 2007 NFL draft, is there a chance Fisher's opinion of Russell could hurt the evaluation of Florida State QB Jameis Winston when he enters the NFL draft?

    When NFL scouts were evaluating Russell before the draft, Fisher spoke well of Russell. Given the questions that have arisen about Winston's maturity level off the field, that good opinion of Russell could raise some skepticism in the NFL about Winston.

    From SI.com:

    “He told the entire NFL that JaMarcus Russell was a great kid,” the person said. “He was a f------ turd then.”

    Russell, of course, went on to be one of the NFL’s biggest draft busts after the Oakland Raiders took him with the first pick in 2007. The team released him after three disappointing seasons that featured dreadful play, a bad attitude and poor work ethic.
