Well, it's hardly Manziel's fault Lord Bills is pulling for him.

Unless Manziel is Lord Bills

Those heights aren't official yet are they?

I'll stick with my expectations of Manziel at 190-195 and Bridgewater around 205.

Btw, Bovada has Manziel line at 4.49, Watkins 4.32, Clowney 4.5, Eisen 6.05.

Possibly, but I'm betting Manziel's 3-cone (which I tend to think is more akin to scrambling) will be smokin'

No way we draft a QB who isn't at least 6'3" with the #1 overall pick.

Somewhere deep in the 3rd round.... understandable.

Even a 2nd rounder. Late first. But 1.1

No way.

So you wouldn't draft Russell Wilson, Drew Brees, or Aaron Rodgers first overall?

No, JaMarcus Russell is more worthy of the #1 pick.

Then again, they all whiff on somebody, especially before the combine.

@OptimumScout tweet from 2/9/11 - "Not sold on Watt because he has a lowish ceiling"

I see Manziel as the biggest risk in the top 15...with potentially as great a reward. He definitely will need to stay in the pocket more often to avoid RG3-level injuries.

It was 3rd down with 1 yard to go for a first. I call a simple trap play. All you gotta do is hand off the ball...

But, nooooo, you decide to pull it out, scramble backwards 33 yards for 45 seconds, throw up a 34 yard Hail Mary with two guys draped over you that Evans has to go into orbit to catch for net... one... yard... first... down.

You're killing me, Johnny, you're killing me!
