Manziel Shines on Pro Day
With the 2014 NFL Draft weeks away, all eyes are on Heisman winner, Johnny Manziel on his pro day.
For those of you who know me at all, you know that I am a die hard, maroon bleeding, Aggie fan. (Class of 2010, Whaddup?!) As you can imagine, I am super invested in this year's NFL draft, where multiple Aggie football players are expected to be drafted very early on. With all the hype and media attention surrounding Heisman trophy winner, Johnny Manziel, everyone is buzzing, wondering where the talented (and sometimes controversial) quarterback will end up. Today, Manziel got to show officials from NFL teams a preview of his skill, during pro day in College Station.
75 officials from 30 NFL teams and other special guests, including former president, George H. W. Bush and his wife Barbara, showed up to watch the star quarterback show his stuff. Manziel completed 61 of 64 passes to receivers, including Mike Evans, who is also expected to be a first round pick. Reportedly, everyone was impressed with the performance put on by the Aggie quarterback.
Unlike most participants on pro day, Manziel wore pads and helmet. When questioned, he Johnny said he didn't see the big deal, saying it was a no-brainer. He stated, "You play the game in shoulder pads on Sundays. Why not come out and do it?" He also said he is ready to learn and will be an "extremely coachable player".
Manziel, who is already somewhat of a celebrity, received praise for his performance from other pro-athletes, like Lebron James and Michael Vick.
Who knows where Manziel will end up when draft day rolls around. I just have one thing to say to the Houston Texans, who hold the number one draft pick: If you draft another quarterback besides Manziel I.Will.Never.Forgive.You.
Who do you think will draft Manziel? Tweet me, @DaniOnUS105!
