Judging by Barry Switzer’s recent comments regarding NFL Draft prospect Johnny Manziel, you’d think the former NFL head coach wasn’t a fan of the former Texas A&M signal caller.

But that probably wouldn’t be true.

Switzer isn’t exactly covering his home in wall decals of Manziel, but he does admit that the quarterback is impressive and does things on the field that seem almost impossible.

Suggesting that he’s the most dominant college football quarterback he’s seen in a long time, Switzer suggested that if available to the Rams at the second pick, they need to take him and replace Sam Bradford – even if Switzer thinks he’s an ‘arrogant little prick‘.

Barry Switzer on @TMASTL: “I don’t like Johnny Manziel’s antics. I think he’s an arrogant little prick.”

Still, arrogant or not, Switzer suggests his personality isn’t something that should scare teams away.

Barry Switzer: If Manziel is there for the Rams at #2, you draft him.

The Rams are said to be open to trading their selection and could pass on a quarterback if they keep it, thus the suggestion from Switzer on drafting Manziel.
