Marcus Mariota isn’t “pro ready” enough to be #1 overall

Can former Oregon Ducks quarterback Marcus Mariota pull a Cam Netwon? Win the Heisman and then become the #1 overall NFL draft pick? Mariota certainly has all the measurables, numbers, tools and statistics to accomplish this exceedingly rare feat.
