2014 NFL Draft Rumors: Merril Hoge thinks Johnny Manziel will be bust


We’re just weeks away from the 2014 NFL Draft and ESPN analyst Merril Hoge has let his feelings on Johnny Manziel be known.

They aren’t good.

Via Adam Schefter, who posted the Hoge quote, the NCAA analyst believes Johnny Manziel has bust ‘written all over him’, especially if he’s drafted in the first round.

ESPN analyst Merril Hoge on Johnny Manziel: “I see bust written all over him — especially if he’s drafted in the 1st round.”

Of course, Hoge is pretty hit and miss when it comes to his predictions as he was a firm believer Brian Brohm was a better NFL prospect than Aaron Rodgers as Niners Nation was quick to point out.

It’s hard to tell of Hoge pulls out some of these ‘predictions’ as more of a way to gain attention or if he truly believes them.

He did go on record as calling Tim Tebow out before the NFL Draft (in terms of his NFL capabilities) so he has a history of not whiffing, but by no certainty is his track record sparkling clean.
