Default Re: Manziel

LSU was by far his worst game of the season in every way possible. He couldn't break free from the pocket to get into the open field and run, he couldn't hit some of his passes, and he was sacked 3 times. 17 rushes for 27 yards is really really bad. Being forced almost exclusively into the pocket passer style in order to move the chains, just did not suit him. I'm sure he will get better, but I'm just concerned about the team's inability to move the ball sometimes. Wasting that great return by Williams that resulted in a missed FG was awful. That FG and the XP missed could have made a huge difference in the way they played the end of the game.

Oh well, easy win against Auburn coming up, hope it instills some confidence so they can at least make @Bama a decent game.

Yeah, but he's done it against everyone except two of the top defenses in Div 1. And he's a freshman QB, not a running back.

This is true, particularly the bolded. Can't wait to see Manziel evolve in the coming years.

Manziel will be the number one pick in whatever draft he enters. I will cite this thread in a few years when it happens. Mark it down.

He is pretty darn special as a college QB .... I know a team out there will use an early pick on him .... #1 overall , strong possibility.

At 6'1" he's going to have that height knock on him all the way up to his eventual entrance into the NFL. A bigger concern could be as he takes off in the next few years out of the pocket will he hold up to the punishing hits SEC defenses can lay down.

Though Russel Wilson seems to be doing pretty good right now. Though Wilson even going to his last year in Wisc was a pretty polished passer.

His evolution as a QB is going to be in his understanding of passing lanes and running lanes in college. Right now the two teams that totally bottled him up stuck to their run lanes and didn't give him that run outlet that right now is an essential part of his game.

Manziel is going to need to make a lot of strides strictly as a passer over the next couple of seasons.

You ran into Manziel at a party? That's pretty cool.

The only football player I've seen is the MLB Jonathan Stewart on my way to Blocker for Calculus lol

Also... damn, girl.

Who is the last 6'0 QB to be picked in the 1st rd (Much less #1 overall) besides Vick?

Aggie homerism overcoming you?

BTW, Manziel is a stud. Doing what he's doing as a freshman in the SEC is unbelievable

Default Re: Manziel

Brandon Weeden shouldn't have been a first round pick. The guy is old. But some needy team always reaches for a QB. That being said...

If Manziel becomes a polished passer by the end of his collegiate career, he's going to be infinitely more deadly than Michael Vick can ever be.

Though your point is very valid - his height could easily knock him down.

Also we'll just have to see which other QBs enter the draft. He could easily be 2nd or 3rd best QB in a given draft and go first round, or he could be in a class loaded with QBs and fall some.

His height could hurt him being drafted high. This kid has some skills and is in a system that fits him well.
