Jameis Winston has all the tools to be a top pick in the 2015 NFL draft.
But does he prefer the window seat or the aisle?
Apparently that was the quest of one desperate NFL team, which reportedly followed the former Florida State quarterback onto a flight during the NFL Scouting Combine. Per Yahoo! Sports’ Charles Robinson:

We get that NFL scouts want to cover all their bases, especially given the questions surrounding Winston’s character. But we’re not sure what exactly can be gained from watching a 21-year-old kid sit there snacking on airline food while wearing his headphones.
Then again, maybe scouts saw the physique Winston revealed at Florida State’s pro day Tuesday and hoped he’d lay off that extra bag of peanuts.

Fortunately, the report that he had been creepily followed by creeps onto an airplane did little to diminish Winston’s confidence. When asked at the pro day why he should be taken by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers with the No. 1 overall pick, Winston responded matter of factly.
“Because I’m the best player in the draft,” he said, via NFL.com.
As of now, it’s hard to disagree. Unless, of course, this NFL team found out Winston likes to sit in the middle seat. That’s just weird.
