With private workouts and visits to various NFL club facilities filling the March and April calendars of Jameis Winston and Marcus Mariota, the 2015 NFL Draft's top two quarterbacks couldn't be busier trying to sell their merits as top-end first-round draft picks. Here is a look at some of the teams believed to have the highest interest in each, and how they've shown it:
**Why the [Jets](/teams/newyorkjets/profile?team=NYJ) could pass:** If it's going to be a year or two before Mariota is ready to take over a pro-style offense, Bowles might prefer someone who can impact the team more immediately with a high first-round pick.
**When Mariota visited:** A large contingent of [Jets](/teams/newyorkjets/profile?team=NYJ) decision-makers went to Eugene, Ore., for [a private workout of Mariota](http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap3000000481995/article/jets-chargers-redskins-to-work-out-marcus-mariota) the last weekend in March. </content:power-ranking>
**Why the [Rams](/teams/st.louisrams/profile?team=STL) could pass:** St. Louis has plenty of other needs, and if confidence in Foles is high enough, Mariota won't appeal as much as a high-impact offensive lineman. If the consolation prize of the second-chosen receiver between [Amari Cooper](http://www.nfl.com/draft/2015/profiles/amari-cooper?id=2552487) or [Kevin White](http://www.nfl.com/draft/2015/profiles/kevin-white?id=2552422) is still available at No. 10, that could be a no-brainer.
**When Mariota visited:** St. Louis will go to UO next week to [watch Mariota work out](https://twitter.com/AlbertBreer/status/586896836134330369). </content:power-ranking>
**Why the [Titans](/teams/tennesseetitans/profile?team=TEN) could pass:** The Whisenhunt regime might need a quicker turnaround than most second-year coaches face, and Mariota's learning curve might be too steep to contribute much in 2015. NFL Media's Daniel Jeremiah [doesn't see it](http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap3000000483153/article/jeremiah-marcus-mariota-not-best-fit-for-titans-at-no-2), and neither does former [Super Bowl](http://www.nfl.com/superbowl) champion quarterback Phil Simms, for [some of the same reasoning](http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap3000000483956/article/phil-simms-titans-should-pass-on-marcus-mariota-at-no-2).
**When Mariota visited:** [Tennessee brought Mariota in](http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap3000000484119/article/oregon-qb-marcus-mariota-set-to-visit-tennessee-titans) for a pre-draft visit last week. </content:power-ranking>
**Why the [Buccaneers](/teams/tampabaybuccaneers/profile?team=TB) could pass:** If it's a quarterback Tampa Bay wants, Winston simply makes more sense. He should be ready to play sooner that Mariota, and the No. 1 pick is a little too rich for a guy who might need a year or two to develop.
**When Mariota visited:** Tampa Bay made a media opportunity out of its visits from both Winston [and Mariota](http://www.nfl.com/videos/tampa-bay-buccaneers/0ap3000000479682/Inside-Mariota-s-visit-with-the-Buccaneers), and sent a number of representatives to UO last week [for a private workout](http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap3000000483793/article/marcus-mariota-will-work-out-for-tampa-bay-on-tuesday). </content:power-ranking>
**Why the [Eagles](/teams/philadelphiaeagles/profile?team=PHI) could pass:** There might not be one good reason. If he were to fall to the No. 20 pick, [Eagles](/teams/philadelphiaeagles/profile?team=PHI) fans would be penciling his name into the slot before the card even reached the podium.
**When Mariota visited:** There are no reports of a visit or workout for Mariota and the [Eagles](/teams/philadelphiaeagles/profile?team=PHI), but that doesn't mean it hasn't happened. With Kelly's knowledge of his former player, he'd get less out of it than any team in the league, anyway. </content:power-ranking>
**Why the [Chargers](/teams/sandiegochargers/profile?team=SD) could pass:** The chances that Mariota could slide to San Diego's pick at No. 17 are slim to begin with, but even if he did, who could fault the team for addressing more glaring needs than [Philip Rivers](/player/philiprivers/2506121/profile) insurance?
**When Mariota visited:** The [Chargers](/teams/sandiegochargers/profile?team=SD) held [a private workout with Mariota](http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap3000000485208/article/san-diego-chargers-to-work-out-marcus-mariota-on-tuesday) on April 14. </content:power-ranking>
