I can see the similarity to an extent. However, Wilson has a much stronger arm, puts amazing touch on the ball, makes quicker and better decisions, has a ridiculous football IQ, and has unheard of intangibles and leadership qualities for such a young player.
Now a lot of that can be fixed with experience for Manziel. But some of it (arm, mental acumen for the position, intangibles) are just things that some guys have and most guys don't.
Athletically, Manziel reminds me a bit of Wilson. But when I watch the two play the QB position, I don't see the similarity.
