Is Winston the next two-star athlete?

Florida State Seminoles Jameis Winston 2014 Heisman Trophy odds

TALLAHASSEE, FL (The Spread)Florida State redshirt sophomore quarterback and 2013 Heisman Trophy winner Jameis Winston is receiving a lot of attention these days, although not for football (or any other off-field story).

Winston is the closer and is also a part-time outfielder for the Florida State baseball team, although according to ESPN’s Christopher Crawford, the Heisman winner will not be the next two-sport star. Baseball America named Winston a third-team preseason All-American on Monday and scouts don’t view him as a first-round MLB prospect.

“He’s not a first-round guy to me,” an NL executive said. “There’s just too much volatility in a prospect like that. There’s no denying he’s got the athleticism to play professionally, but I’m not using a first pick on someone with that much volatility, especially when you consider the position he plays for such a high-profile college football team. I might take him in the top 100, but the first-round talk seems a bit silly to me.”

Winston threw for 4,057 yards with 40 touchdowns and only 10 interceptions while leading Florida State to a national championship victory over Auburn. On top of winning the Heisman, he also emerged as a potential No. 1 overall prospect for the 2015 NFL Draft, which is the first year that he would be eligible.

According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, Winston is also the current favorite to win the 2014 Heisman Trophy at 2/1 odds. Oregon quarterback Marcus Mariota has the next-best odds at 9/2 while Ohio State signal-caller Braxton Miller is 5/1 and Baylor’s Bryce Petty is 17/2 to win the award.
