Texas A&M’s Heisman Trophy winning quarterback is in his second season at the helm of the Aggies offense. He is however eligible for the 2014 NFL draft if he wanted to enter, it might not be a wise choice for him to do so according to Peter King.
Peter King of Sports Illustrated writes:
One scout at Manziel’s absolutely ridiculous game against Nick Saban’s Alabama defense Saturday told me Sunday: “It’s like [wrestler] Ric Flair once said: ‘You may not like this, but you better learn to love it.’ ‘’
But Manziel, to many teams right now, would be undraftable because they’re scared of his mood swings and off-field questions. But it only takes one team out of 32 to fall for him. And some team will, unless he self-destructs between today and draft day.
King adds that “Browns assistant GM Ray Farmer scouted the game. Hmmmmmm. Johnny Dawg Pound!” The Browns seem to be ready to move past the Brandon Weeden era in Cleveland so the fit makes sense and they look headed for a Top 10 pick.
Manziel played relatively well against Alabama’s defense, he threw for 464 yards and 5 touchdowns, plus he ran for another 98 yards. That gives him nearly a thousand yards passing (984) and 11 touchdowns in
three 2.5 games, just through the air.
