It would be a complete shock if Johnny Manziel returned to Texas A&M next season rather than entering the 2014 NFL Draft, and he recently made some comments that are the strongest sign yet he plans to move on from College Station.
Manziel was speaking to the media recently where he commented on the issue.
While Manziel said he will seek advice from others before determining whether or not to declare for the draft, he did make it very clear that he believes he is ready to make the jump and play in the NFL.
“In my mind, I think I am,” Manziel said, via the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. “I feel like I’m playing, for the most part, at a really high level of football. I’m putting the ball where I want it to be and I’m throwing it with a lot of velocity.
“You don’t want to go and be unprepared for the National Football League and leave two years on the table. It all comes down to making the best decision for you. Whether you’re ready. Whether teams are quarterback-needy. You look at all your factors.”
Manziel will spend the next few weeks discussing his future with Texas A&M head coach Mike Sumlin, his private passing coach George Whitfield Jr. and others close to him, before he finalizes his decision.
Unless Manziel plans to shock us all, you can expect to see him moving on to the pros in 2014.
