It means he is making smart decisions or getting smart advising in his preparation for the draft.

Now we get 30 pages of discussion on why 5'11 3/4" is so much worse than a TRUE 6'er.

Eh, no significant difference in his measureables from what he was reported to be in college.

That to me suggests his work with Whitfield has been more chalkboard than anything.

& if that's the case, it falls in line with what Cosell and a few others have said about him.

Default Re: Manziel

Really no big suprise here. We knew that he is about 6 foot tall. He ain`t much shorter or taller than advertised. So his stock shouldn`t be falling.

I still believe he is the guy with the highest ceiling and the lowest floor. If we take him it`s a gamble. But if he turns out the pro his talent suggests he might be a top5 QB in the leage in a couple of years.

In short: if we take him I`d be really excited - and really scared at the same time. I still prefer Bridgewater but I wouldn`t be mad if we go the other direction.

Lol at all the people who kept saying "I have met Johnny numerous times, NO WAY IN HELL is he 6ft tall" Because if he was wearing shoes when you met him he was easily 6'

No, so basically he's less than 6 ft. As I recall he virtually guaranteed he would be 6 feet tall, so basically then this is the first turd in Manziel's pile of BS.
And now watch his 40 time when he runs - he'll be lucky to break 4.70.

Size is an issue. However M anziel has pluses all over the place. Dominated the SEC. Lived up to expectations. Plus play making ability. Demonstrated leadership skills. Fiery competitor.

His size, though a factor, does not negate all that.

No one expected his measurables to be very impressive. Game tape is how you would judge a Johnny Football.

These kids aren't out there wasting their time. This is about a level playing field. No Mike Evans. No spread offenses. No Greg Robinsons. Mano e mano
