Love him or hate him, Jameis Winston is the new face of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The Bucs selected the former Florida State quarterback with the No. 1 overall pick in the 2015 NFL draft. Though he has had his problems off the field, Winston is considered a once-in-a-generation player on it. While at Florida State, he won the Heisman Trophy and led the Seminoles to the national championship following the 2013 season. He took Florida State to the College Football Playoff semifinals after the 2014 season, but the Seminoles' shot at back-to-back national titles ended with a loss to Marcus Mariota and Oregon in the Rose Bowl.
