Personally I don't think that Jameis is ready for the pros. He's been in the spotlight for negative things lately, he just needs to work on building his character to have a stronger image. Also, he needs to finish college and get a good education.

Jameis Winston is ready for the Pros.

My opponent wants to say Jameis Winston should not enter the NFL draft for personal character reasons. As the NFL does not have any real qualms about allowing people with troubled pasts join their organization I do not think it is up for him to remove himself from the draft. If a team wants to take him then he has the right to let them try and pick him up. If he's picked then great for him but character shouldn't hold him back. Why?

His talent is incredible.

In 27 games played he went 26-1.
Threw for 7,964 yards (nearly 4,000 a year).
Threw 65 Touchdowns.
Had a rating of 163.3
Won the Heisman.
Won two ACC Championship games.
Won a National Championship.

Simply put, there is nothing left for Jameis to do in college. He's won and achieved everything a player can even dream of attaining and he did it in two years. Now its time to go pro.

Jameis doesn't need an education to play NFL football and his past antics have shown that he doesn't value education much anyways. He may have to develop more as a person but why not do that as part of a professional team? There is nothing left for him to do in college, time to move on.

Character flaws do not outweigh the stunning body of work Jameis has put in. His talent is beyond ready for the NFL. Now its up to the NFL to decide if his character flaws are a downside or not.
