    Johnny Football ..

    I am curious as to how high in the draft Johnny Manziel will be selected. Apparently he is going to declare for the draft at the end of his sophmore season. Is this guy for real? Will his skills translate to success at the NFL level? Thoughts ..

    head case....massive head case...do not want

    i think he'll bust

    you see some of his prayer throws he has? How they magically find the hands of a receiver...practically closes his eyes sometimes and defenders can't win at 3 flags up

    arm strength is eh, he'll probably get injured a bunch from trying to run a whole lot

    I don't really see how he's a head case. Every indication is that he's exceptionally smart, exceptionally motivated to be great and his coaches say he's amazing at analyzing what the defenses are doing. He certainly has the mental and physical tools to be great and has the legs to keep plays alive.

    Wouldn't touch him until the third or fourth round, personally. And even then, I'd have to think long and hard about it. Issues with his height, bulk, accuracy, decision making, and intangibles make it difficult for me to see much to get excited about in terms of next level potential.

    I really like the guy but I do understand the concerns! Is he Russel Wilson or Gary Beban or Pat Haden in between? Not so sure just yet... I think early he will have some success, but will he hold up if he is the starter? I still would love him as a toy for a change of pace garbage time back up for Slingin' Sammy. But would not go for a first round on him for sure. Anyone think he is not better than KC is slighty miscued imho. He would be a upgrade at backup or so I believe.

    Probably about 5 QBs I'd take ahead of him.

    I wouldn't want the Rams taking him. If I were a team with a coaching staff that would fit their offense around his unique set of skills (not the Rams..) then I would be fine spending a first rounder on him. I would still take other QB's ahead of him but that is mostly due to the strength of this upcoming draft than any negatives I see in Johnny Football.
