Well I do not think that Mariotta is going to go first in the draft this year even though I think that he is a better player than Winston. If you look at who has the first pick in the 2015 draft it is the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Winston played at Florida State University, and it makes sense since Tampa Bay has had a rough time bringing in the crowds so why not go with a familiar face in Florida. It makes sense for them to take Winston. However you have to take Winston's off field actions into account. Whether or not it happened his off field problems make it hard for some teams to want him. But we saw the Mariotta and Winston match up during the Championship. It was a great first half where the teams were back and forth. Once the second half started everything went wrong. The defense was tired but Winston's play dropped noticeably. While Mariotta recovered from his interceptions Winstons was unable to correct his mistakes.
