2015 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:

Marcus Mariota, QB, Oregon

Many analysts felt that if Mariota had declared for the 2014 draft, he would have been wearing a Houston Texans uniform today. Those same analysts see the uncanny playmaking ability in the Oregon passer that the 49ers have enjoyed with Colin Kaepernick at the helm. Much like the San Francisco quarterback, Mariota needs to be accounted for at all times, as he not only has a rifle arm but is dangerous when he spots a crease and explodes through it as a ball-carrier. He also uses very good touch and anticipation to move the ball. His athleticism matches the "new wave" of quarterbacks in the NFL, as he is effective operating in play action and is a dangerous threat to strike from anywhere on the field, whether as a passer or a ball-carrier.
