Hence the "Wilson will make JFF a lot of money" quotes that we have been hearing since the Super Bowl.
And I agree with all of that except the assumption that the only reason he wasn't considered a high first round pick was because of his height. And the assumption that the only reason Manziel is being considered for the first pick overall is because of Wilson's success. If that is what you are assuming.
