Johnny Manziel

School: Texas A&M
Position: QB
Positive: Two-year starter who, in 2012, became the first freshman to win the Heisman Trophy. Passing totals last year included a completion rate of 69.9%, 4114 yards, 37 TDs, and 13 INTs. Also added 759 yards rushing and 9 more scores. Freshman totals included 3706 yards passing, 26 touchdowns, and 9 interceptions. Also added 21 rushing touchdowns that season. Electrifying college quarterback with questionable next-level skills. Intuitive. Displays a great feel for what's happening on the field and outstanding pocket presence. Senses the rush, easily eludes multiple defenders, and creates yardage. Patient in the pocket, displays outstanding vision, and keeps his eyes down the field looking for an open wipeout. Displays a great sense of knowing where his receivers are, spreads the ball around, and uses all his targets. Gets outside the numbers to give himself a better view of the field or buy time for pass catchers. To his credit, will not force the ball into covered targets, rather reloads to find another pass catcher. Quickly locates the open receiver. Displays a sixth sense and was a natural in college.
Negative: Plays with reckless abandon, which may be to his detriment in the NFL. Holds the ball too long in the pocket. Lacks great arm strength, struggles getting the ball downfield. and cannot zip the outs. Passes tend to float. Takes too many chances and puts his receivers in precarious positions. Gambles and makes questionable decisions trying to improvise at times. Changes his release point.
Analysis: Manziel was a highly decorated quarterback in college, looking like a magician the way he created yardage. He lacks size and the arm strength for the NFL and many of the elements which made him great on the college field could be to his detriment at the next level. Manziel is a risky prospect who comes with no guarantees and in the end he'll be overdrafted.
