Johnny “Football” Manziel basically beat the national champion Alabama Crimson Tide by himself last year, so what will he be able to do with one of the top wide receivers in the 2013 class next year?
Manziel runs around in the backfield extending plays and more often than not, he would finish plays with his legs, because he has such unique ability to cut left and right with speed and agility. He also made some nice throws, including probably the throw of the year against Alabama.
Manziel now has a true downfield threat in Ricky Seals-Jones, the number one rated wide receiver in the 2013 class according to Scout.
Jones played both ways in high school although he got hurt pretty early in his senior year. He is 6-foot-5 and 220 pounds, which gives him the height to make plays while in the air, but also having the frame to shed tackles. That is the unique thing about Jones; he can either go deep or be an excellent possession receiver. His slant route is a thing of beauty, and his fade route to the end zone will be an excellent red zone weapon for Manziel.
The Texas A&M Aggies now have a lethal passing attack, and as Manziel makes his run at a second straight Heisman trophy, he will have a lethal downfield threat that may give him even more room to run in the backfield. If that is even possible after last year, then Alabama better be on their guard.
