Florida State's Jameis Winston showed Saturday there's nothing wrong with his throwing shoulder.
On Saturday in Indianapolis, he threw with zip and accuracy — posting the most impressive performance in a six-quarterback group that also included Heisman Trophy winner Marcus Mariota. Winston, the 2013 Heisman winner, and Mariota are presumed to be vying to go No. 1 in the April draft.
"I think he throws an extremely catchable ball. Has all the arm strength you want, but he makes it easy for the receiver based on the route," NFL Network draft analyst Mike Mayock said. "He understands that, he gets it."
The workouts came one day after ESPN reported doctors were rechecking Winston's throwing shoulder for weakness, and the best news of all may have been that Winston said his right arm felt great.
He didn't even ice the arm following the workout.
"I actually feel good," Winston told NFL Network following the workout. "The thing is they actually [put a] shot in my shoulder and made it sore a little bit. I was like, 'You all tried to do that. I've done had this shoulder my whole life and you're going to make it sore.' "
Mariota threw well, too, but wasn't quite as accurate as Winston. The Oregon quarterback had the fastest 40-yard dash time among all 15 quarterbacks, 4.52 seconds.

Goosen, at 46, sits atop leaderboard
Retief Goosen made only two pars on the back nine at Riviera and survived a day of wild shots and bad breaks for a 2-under 69 to take a two-shot lead into the final round of the Northern Trust Open.
The 46-year-old Goosen wasn't sure how his nerves would hold up because he had not been a 36-hole leader in more than four years, and he is approaching the six-year anniversary of his last victory.
Goosen was at 8-under 205, two shots clear of Graham DeLaet of Canada, who had a 70.
