The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are heading to Eugene, Oregon for a private workout with Marcus Mariota. And the team's so excited about it, that they're posting pictures of the airplane and travel arrangements, featuring Jason Licht, Lovie Smith and a bunch of scouts.

According to Albert Breer, director of scouting Jon Robinson, offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter and quarterbacks coach Mike Bajakian are also on the plane. That's a pretty sizable contingent to go scout a player most people are convinced the Bucs aren't taking anyway -- something I'm inclined to agree with.

But due diligence is a thing, and no one knows what will happen between now and the draft to change things up. So while Jameis Winston is still the likely pick, they have to make sure they know everything there is to know abuot Marcus Mariota, too.
