Johnny Manziel put on a show at his personal pro day as the former Texas A&M Aggies quarterback went through a workout in front of representatives from every NFL team with the exception of the Cleveland Browns and the Chicago Bears.
The teams most interested in Manziel after the workout are the Houston Texans, Jacksonville Jaguars and Minnesota Vikings, according to Albert Breer and Chase Goodbread, respectively.
The Texans and Jaguars will meet privately with Texas A&M QB Johnny Manziel this afternoon.

#Vkings coach Mike Zimmer spent a lot of time talking to Kevin Sumlin while Manziel threw.

These three teams are picking first, third and eighth and all have pressing needs at the position so it’s not a shocker these three organizations would want to investigate Manziel as much as possible before May’s NFL draft.
Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer had previously questioned Manziel’s leadership and maturity so talking with his college coach and meeting with Manziel himself will give the first-year head coach a much better understanding on the 2012 Heisman Trophy winner than hearsay will.
Manziel would be an instant hit in Jacksonville where he will boost sagging ticket sales and of course with his in-state Texans would be in infusion of excitement for the franchise after their 2013 season began with Super Bowl promise and ended with the worst record in the league.
It would appear that the floor for Manziel is going eighth overall while he has at least a one in three chance to go first overall.
