Jameis Winston hoping mechanics tweak helps him improve off Heisman season

Jameis Winston vs Florida AP

As Florida State’s logo may or may not be undergoing a few tweaks, so is the throwing motion of the school’s Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback.

Jameis Winston isn’t a full participant in Florida State’s spring practice as he plays baseball for the ‘Noles. But he’s still getting some work in, specifically with his throwing mechanics. From’s Jared Shanker:

Winston is alternating between throwing from the quarterback’s pocket and the pitcher’s mound this spring, limiting his time to focus on mechanics. Two weeks ago, Winston laid out his spring goals; to hold the football higher and generate more power with his hips during his delivery. Fisher and quarterbacks coach Randy Sanders proposed the tweaks to Winston following the national championship game.

Coach Jimbo Fisher said, for all the good things Winston did last year, he still missed some throws and the goal of this mechanics tweak is to help him make those throws this fall. It’s easy to forget Winston was just a redshirt freshman last year, and it’s gotta be a positive sign for Florida State fans that Winston and his coaches are getting out in front of a necessary tweak now rather than waiting for the fall.

    I understand he was also working on his speed and tackling skills. Ladies you better watch out now!

    Not an FSU fan, but it’s scary to imagine this guy getting better from his freshman year. Two-sport athlete, Heisman trophy winner, national championship with comeback win against Auburn. What else could you ask of him? The only thing he needs to work on is his tainted public image for last years legal issues. Otherwise, the sky is the limit for this young man.

    You mean he’s got to learn how to actually throw the ball correctly now that he doesn’t have Kelvin Benjamin bailing him out on 10-15 50/50 balls a game?

    Dude threw so many jump balls and made so many overthrows last year it was comical the praise he was receiving.

    I bet the drunk coeds are the only things he tweaks

    @youmad What a pathetic and sad troll, look at his completion percentage and rating last year. Watch film, then comment.

    His most accurate play was sexual assault. I cant believe the level of support he receives from the FSU fan base. I cant believe the fact that FSU being a “football town” kept him out of prison, and you’ll still praise your savior!
