If you're one who stereotypes because your small you will get injured often, the truth is 6'5" QBs get hurt about as often as 6'0" QBs. Unless your name is Bret Farve you're likely to miss games as an NFL QB due to injuries. Manziel is 2" taller than Wilson. Manziel as a freshman in the SEC threw for over 3000 yds and ran for over 1000 yds. Kaepernick was only able to accomplish this his Senior yr at Nevada in the WAC. Manziel also has a quicker release, quicker feet and sees the field better than Kaepernick or Wilson did in college. As a freshman and Soph Kaepernick was only able to complete 54% of his passes, Wilson 58%, Manziel over 70%.
Yet, manziel is the one who's had his shoulder dinged up this year...
And lol at 7 pounds being the difference of frailty....Most NFL scouts dont seem to be bothered by TB's "frailty".
that 5" of height difference though
