In college football, quarterbacks are usually the Heisman trophy winners. Johnny Manziel and Jameis Winston are both incredible players, but they will both have their differences in the NFL. Both have the potential to be great quarterbacks at the next level and both are extremely different. Here are five reasons why Manziel is better than Winston.

While his game is extremely unorthodox, Manziel gets the job done. He doesn't have ideal size or technique, but he does an excellent job making plays all over the football field. The thing that stands out most with Manziel is how he can make something out of nothing. Tony Romo has done an excellent job in the NFL doing just that.
To go with his orthodox play, Manziel can simply make plays. His athletic ability combined with his escapability makes him one of the most dangerous quarterbacks entering the draft. Despite being undersized, Manziel makes up for his weaknesses with his elusiveness.
If you have never heard Winston talk, you are missing out. After winning the BCS National Championship game and the game's MVP, Winston made absolutely no sense in his post-game speech. Manziel, on the other hand, is one of the brightest quarterbacks in recent years entering the draft. Manziel got a 32 on the Wonderlic.
There is truly something special about Manziel. He took college football by storm heading into the 2012 season. Manziel kept his elite play going in 2013, despite all of the media attention surrounding him. Manziel will bring some baggage with him, but he has already been at the center of media for more than a year now.
Manziel has a history of headaches, and there is no doubt about that. He had the whole autograph-signing scandal and he has been seen at parties intoxicated with numerous celebrities. But, Manziel never stole crab legs like Winston. When asked what happened, Winston responded, "I just forgot to pay." One question remains for me: Really, Jameis?
