Manziel will be a bust in the NFL says analyst
If you look at the college performance of former A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel, the numbers look fantastic. The athlete threw for 7820 yards with 63 touchdowns and 22 interceptions. Manziel rushed for 2169 yards with 30 touchdowns that route in two seasons as the starting QB for Texas A&M reports the LA Times.
Manziel also won the Heisman Trophy as a freshman and was a finalist for the award again last year. Despite the prowess he showed as a college QB, some analysts think Manziel will be a poor performer in the tougher NFL. ESPN NFL analyst Merril Hoge thinks that drafting Manziel will be a big risk for NFL teams.
"I see bust written all over him," Hoge said. "Especially if he's drafted in the first round."
Manziel is expected to go in the first round and is considered to be one of the top three QBs in the draft this year. Other top QBs are Teddy Bridgewater and Blake Bortles.
"When you look at a guy, he's got to be a good decision maker, he's got to be accurate, has to have a feel for the pocket and an awareness and understanding of how to play in structure," Hoge said. "All that being said, [Manziel's] got none of that."
Manziel certainly wouldn't be the first college hotshot unable able to perform in the NFL. Only time will tell how Manziel stacks up. He will certainly find a team to play with and likely for some big money.
