Give him a couple more years of work, more repetitions within David Klingler's spread offense and he'll become a system QB. There's potential for Manziel to generate some gaudy numbers in the future, in which case, he may move up to the first round. There's also a chance be goes undrafted like Chase Daniels who also put up some gaudy numbers out of Missouri.
I'm curious how A&M's spread offense will work next year now that the SEC has gotten a look at it.
I think A&M will continue to produce on offense and improve as Manziel gets more experience. Before the fall of Petrino, Arkansas was tearing up the SEC with Tyler Wilson and their spread offense. It's a somewhat similar system, but their QB didn't run the ball anywhere near as much as Manziel. I think A&M has a good chance to continue to compete in the SEC for the next two years and potentially win the conference. As a fan, I sure am expecting them to compete for it next year. As long as Johnny improves his passing game, A&M will continue to move on up.
