Marcus Mariota was the center of attention at the 2015 NFL scouting combine at Lucas Oil Stadium. And the Heisman winner didn’t leave without a memento from NFL staff photographer Ben Liebenberg, who released a photo of Mariota on Instagram yesterday.
The photo depicts the Oregon Ducks’ highly decorated quarterback and native Hawaiian in a stunning, royal blue jacket, firmly holding a football displaying the NFL logo.

Liebenberg photos appear regularly in ESPN the Magazine, The New York Post, and Sports Illustrated.

Mariota’s photo session was part of the former Oregon quarterback’s ceremonious reception at the annual NFL scouting combine.

Mariota also participated in a press conference, answering a barrage of questions concerning his transition from college to the NFL and his current training with Cleveland Brown quarterbacks coach Kevin O’Connell.
