FSU QB Jameis Winston Falls From No. 3 To No. 25 On Mel Kiper's Big Board For 2015 NFL Draft

Jameis Winston's off-the-field actions are starting to affect his ability to perform on it, as the Heisman-winning quarterback is suspended for the first half of Florida State's game against Clemson due to his obscene outburst on the Seminoles' campus Tuesday. 

The redshirt sophomore's apparent immaturity is beginning to negatively impact his potential future in the NFL, too, at least in the mind of one analyst. 

Today, famed NFL Draft analyst Mel Kiper dropped Winston more than 20 spots on his 2015 NFL Draft Big Board for ESPN. 

"At a time when NFL teams are going to be more sensitive than they ever have been about the off-field actions of their players -- and rightfully so -- Winston has reached a point with these issues where my sense is that a number of teams would have pulled him off the board if the draft were held tomorrow," Kiper writes. "It's that simple."

Winston started the year at No. 1 on Kiper's Big Board. 

The Florida State quarterback is projected to go No. 4 by WalterFootball.com, No. 4 by CBS Sports, and is No. 7 on SI.com's NFL Draft Big Board.

Winston has thrown for 626 yards and three touchdowns through two games this season.
