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.
This for Manziel. There's def a lot of excitement for the guy, but my concerns for next year seeing the spread offense and having time to look at how LSU and Florida bottled him up is going to play a big part in game planning. Kingsbury and Sumlin are going to have to get him better at throwing the ball. My bigger concern isn't necessarily just size for passing reasons but if he continues at this current rate if his body will hold up to two to three more years of SEC defenses.
If he keeps it up he's likely going to be a high second round pick and if he's in a weak class he could climb up into the 1st. There's still going to be the system knock on him until he gets to the pros and can prove other wise.
Te'o easy top 10 pick. I'd give up picks to move up to have him team up with Cushing as our ILBs. That'd be just sick.
Klein is going to be a project 4th rounder likely, he's got the athleticism you want in a QB, but he's a very unpolished passer at this stage. Would not surprise me to see him land in a place like SF or DC where he could get groomed for picks later.
