I have seen Manziel play quite a few games the last two years. He is a fantastic athlete, but not a great passer. Most of his big plays are from scrambling and broken plays. He has also had the ability to rely on Evans quite a bit at WR. I just dont see him being a good NFL QB. He is on the smaller size, has huge maturity issues, is just average when sitting in the pocket. I would say he is more like a Michael Vick than anyone else.
He's no Brees coming out of College. IF he gets picked lower down, and IF he sits AND learns the position, and IF he learns some humility he might make it. But most likely he's the next train wreck QB out of college.
Bet SD wishes they had kept Brees?

My prediction. Manziel will falter in the NFL. He is a glory boy and has a mouth to go with his immaturity. The NFL is a true team sport and it will take him at least as long to come to that conclusion as it has RGIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII.
I don't Manziel will ever be an elite QB in the NFL. Maybe a Flacco or Ryan type, good but not great.
TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -- If Alabama is to regain its mantle as the top team in college football next season, it will have to do so without a pair of its most talented underclassmen as safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix and left tackle Cyrus Kouandjio are set to enter the 2014 NFL draft, according to a source.
Wilfork may be getting up there, but watch out for him next year. I saw an article yesterday where when he got hurt he apologized to Kraft for letting the team down. That's a pretty amazing mindset when you think about it. He's going to be on a tear next season.
But ... yeah ... they need to find the next Wilfork, Seymour, etc. ... these new guys are doing well, but that's more a reflection of BB's coaching and raw natural athleticism.
Ok, I'll be the one defector. I like Manziel, lol.
Maybe he is the next Tebow or maybe he is the next Flutie, either way he is fun to watch. Now all that running around in the backfield and throwing up prayers to Mike Evans is not gonna fly in the NFL though
Jernigan led Florida State with 11 tackles for loss in 2013, his first year as a full-time starter, and he was regarded as a strong run stuffer up the middle. Jernigan is widely projected as a first-round selection in this year's NFL draft and is rated as the No. 7 overall player by ESPN's Scouts, Inc.
"I feel I am the most versatile defensive lineman in the draft," Jernigan told ESPN's Joe Schad. "Some team will get an athletic, hard-working lineman who attacks, plays smart and doesn't come off the field."
