    Titans Not Worried About Marcus Mariota's Development

    Tuesday, January 16, 12:46 PM

    Tennessee Titans general manager Jon Robinson remains confident that quarterback Marcus Mariota is the right guy for the gig, and Robinson isn't too worried that the team will have yet another head coach guiding the offense in 2018. "Marcus is a pretty resilient guy. He's a very mentally tough guy," Robinson said of Mariota. "He takes a lot from the standpoint of ownership in things. I have zero concern in Marcus being able to adapt and learn, and do what's best to get the offense going." Mariota will be playing for his third NFL coach after being drafted in 2015. It was a disappointing year for the Hawaiin in 2017, as he threw for just 3,232 yards with 13 touchdowns and 15 interceptions after throwing for 3,426 yards and 26 touchdowns in 2016. Injuries slowed Mariota down again, but he has plenty of pieces around him in the offense to be successful. The right coaching staff may be able to get more out of him, but fantasy owners probably won't want any part of Mariota, definitely not as a QB1.

    Marcus Mariota Biography

    High School Career Highlights

    Mariota was born and raised in Honolulu, Hawaii. He was a two-sport star in football and track at Saint Louis High School in Honolulu. There, Oregon's coaching staff discovered his talent as a dual-threat QB. Mariota was named the 2010 Hawaii Gatorade Player of the Year and helped his team win the state title during his senior season. This propelled him to the next level playing for the Oregon Ducks.

    College Career Highlights

    Mariota won the coveted Heisman Trophy after the 2014 season. But, Oregon lost to Ohio State in the first-ever College Playoffs Championship Game to cap his college career.

    Leading up to the 2014 season, Mariota was an instant breakout star. He redshirted in 2011, then exploded on the scene in 2012. The Ducks went 12-1 in his first year and he scored 37 total TDs passing and rushing.

    Then, Mariota led the Ducks to an 11-2 record in 2013. Mariota increased his passing total by nearly 1,000 yards and totaled 40 TDs.

    This led to Mariota's Heisman campaign in 2014 when he passed for 4,454 yards, rushed for 770 yards, and totaled 57 TDs. He was also the NCAA leader in QBR and passer rating. Mariota decided to leave college for the NFL Draft after his junior season.

    NFL Draft

    The Tennessee Titans drafted Marcus Mariota #2 in the 2015 NFL Draft, following Florida St. QB Jameis Winston. Mariota was tabbed the franchise QB for the Titans.

    Leading up to the Draft, Mariota wowed scouts at the NFL Combine with his combination of speed and throwing ability. Mariota was a top-performer among QBs in every Combine drill. His 40 time was 4.52 seconds and his vertical jump was 36.0 inches. The 40 time led all QBs in his Draft class.

    2015 Rookie NFL Season

    After being picked #2 in the NFL Draft, Mariota signed a lucrative four-year contract worth $24.21 million. The Titans' contract included guaranteed salary and an average annual salary of $6.05 million.

    But, Mariota struggled in his rookie season. He threw 19 TDs, but he was also intercepted 10 times. He added two rushing TDs. Then, he injured his knee and missed the final few games of the season. He was determined to bounce back in 2016, though.

    2016 NFL Season

    Mariota had a stellar second NFL season, but it was also cut short due to injury. He suffered a gruesome leg injury in the Titans' next-to-last game against the Jaguars, ending their hopes of competing for the AFC South. Prior to the injury, Mariota threw 26 TDs and one fewer INT than during his rookie season. He also rushed for two TDs.

    Personal Life

    Mariota is a devout Christian. He does not have an official Twitter account. But, there is a Twitter feed @MariotaNews that covers his career. His popular #8 Titans jersey can be found in the NFL Team Shop.
