Winston improved his accuracy and efficiency last season, posting career highs in completion percentage and YPA. But his downfield passing is still holding him back from taking that next step, specifically deep throws beyond 30 yards. On attempts of 21-30 yards, Winston ranked 13th in completion percentage with four touchdowns and one interception. On attempts of more than 30 yards, Winston completed just three of 21 passes (14.3 percent), ranking 26th in the league among 29 qualified passers. DeSean Jackson was supposed to help with the downfield game, but he came away with career lows in yards per catch and yards per target. Coach Dirk Koetter seemed to blame Winston this offseason when he said he made a tape of plays where Jackson was open but didn't get the ball. Winston was hampered by a shoulder injury for an uncertain number of weeks before missing three games midseason. When he returned, he posted an 8.7 YPA in the last five games, completing 67.2 percent of his passes and averaging 317 yards per game. Perhaps the shoulder was a bigger deal than he let on. In any event, Winston has plenty of weapons to target, including WR Mike Evans. This year he might even get a running game after the Bucs drafted Ronald Jones II in the second round. But Winston is suspended for the first three games of the season, so he won't get to work within this new reality until Week 4.

  2. Jameis Winston 2017 Preseason Outlook
    Winston turned in another serviceable season, improving marginally from his rookie year. He increased his passing touchdowns by six while giving back five rushing touchdowns. But while 4,000 yards and nearly 30 touchdowns are, of course, noteworthy, Winston needs to improve his accuracy and decision making to reach his potential. His YPA and completion percentage are mediocre at best, and he's thrown 33 picks in two years. He also fumbled 10 times last year, losing six. Specifically, his downfield passing needs work after he posted 9.6 YPA (24th) with six interceptions, third most in the league, on passes more than 20 yards last season. That aspect of his game should at least improve this year with the addition of burner DeSean Jackson, who gives the strong-armed Winston a deep threat he hasn't had. Jackson's speed should also attract more safety help, opening the field for No. 1 receiver Mike Evans and the tight end combo of Cameron Brate and rookie O.J. Howard. Coach Dirk Koetter said this offseason he wants to take advantage of Winston's skills throwing on the run and introduce more designed rollouts for the quarterback. Perhaps that will get him in space to add rushing yards as well. In any event, it's time for Winston to prove he's a franchise quarterback.
  3. Jameis Winston 2016 Preseason Outlook
    The first overall pick in the 2015 draft, Winston put together a fairly impressive rookie season, starting all 16 games for the Buccaneers while joining Andrew Luck and Cam Newton as the only rookies in NFL history to throw for more than 4,000 yards. He also proved to be surprisingly valuable on the ground, with his six rushing TDs second only to Newton's 10 among all quarterbacks, though he only ranked 11th in rushing yards (210). Winston's excellent instincts are his primary asset, as he was sacked just 27 times (tied for 19th in the league) and showed an uncanny knack for keeping plays alive, often using his size to stay upright while waiting for a route to develop. He also possesses a big arm capable of stretching the field, and while the hitch in his delivery does slow his release time, similar QBs such as Ben Roethlisberger and Philip Rivers have worked around mechanical quirks. Winston's decision making could also use some work, but his best chance for improvement in 2016 could come simply through better health in his supporting cast. Mike Evans, Vincent Jackson and Austin Seferian-Jenkins all missed time with injuries, and if they can stay on the field more consistently Winston's efficiency shouId rise.
  4. Jameis Winston 2015 Preseason Outlook
    The first overall pick in this year's draft, Winston will start from Day 1. He has excellent physical tools — above-average arm strength, a soft touch, elite anticipation. At 6-4, 231, he is strong in the pocket and has already played in a pro-style offense at Florida State, which, the Bucs hope, will hasten his transition to the NFL. Character, of course, is his biggest red flag, and only time will tell on that account. For being the worst team in football last year, the Buccaneers have some impressive offensive weapons, which should help Winston's development. Wide receivers Vincent Jackson and Mike Evans, both 6-5, each surpassed 1,000 yards receiving last year and give Winston big targets downfield and in the red zone. Tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins, another 6-5 target, is expected to have a bigger role this year after being limited by injuries as a rookie. The Buccaneers used their two second-round picks on linemen Donovan Smith and Ali Marpet to revamp an offensive line that allowed 52 sacks last year, third most in the league. Winston should also benefit from the up-tempo offense run by new offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter, whose teams in Atlanta averaged 631 pass attempts (2nd) and also threw the fourth-most red-zone passes (240) over the last three seasons.
