NFL scout says Johnny Manziel is the Terrell Owens of quarterbacks

It’s been a pretty active few days for Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel.

After learning of his (hilarious) suspension, Manziel went on to obliterate the Rice defense this weekend. That lead to a handful of people chiming in on his performance, including an NFL scout who said he believes Manziel is the quarterback equivalent to Terrell Owens.

Per NFL insider Mike Freeman:

One scout called Manziel the “Terrell Owens of college quarterbacks.” So, there’s that.

I’m not exactly sure if that’s a compliment or a dig.

I mean, Owens was a disgustingly good player when he was on the field, but a complete problem child as well. So, in essence I understand what the scout was going for but it’s hard to suggest Manziel will be as much of a problem as Owens was in the locker room without ever playing an NFL game.

Owens strikes me more of a guy who feeds off the public eye while Manziel just comes across a bit more arrogant, though, not nearly as hungry for the attention.

Agree with the scouts take? Or think he’s off base?
