Johnny Manziel declared for the 2014 NFL draft earlier this week after two stellar seasons with the Texas A&M Aggies and drew comparisons to soon-to-be-Hall-of-Fame quarterback from Brett Favre, so what does Manziel do to celebrate his big decision?

Manziel celebrated by going out and having an adult beverage while wearing a retro Atlanta Falcons Favre jersey and a Chicago Cubs hat for good measure. In case you’re wondering, Manziel turned 21 on Dec. 6, so he is perfectly legally allowed to consume that beer.

On Wednesday ESPN NFL analyst Trent Dilfer compared the Falcons 1991 second round pick to Manziel:

“Watching his game tape, the only quarterback I can compare him to from an instinct standpoint is Brett Favre. Johnny Manziel has eyes in the back of his head. He flat-out sees stuff that other people don’t see, and that’s why he’s special.” [The Sports Bank]

ESPN’s Kirk Herbstreit has also compared Manziel to a Southern Miss version of Manziel, but the 2012 Heisman winner is projected to be drafted much higher than Favre who went 33rd and Bovada has a prop bet on whether Manziel is drafted inside the top five or not.

    Hi Patrick, I think you meant to put Favre here and just didn’t catch it on your re-read? “Southern Miss version of Manziel”. Nice article. I personally add that Johnny bounces around the pocket like a pinball, just as Brett did.
