Johnny Manziel’s Pro Day answered questions about what critics said he couldn’t do. So much so that Ron Jaworski appeared on Sportscenter and backtracked on his statement that Johnny Football was nothing more than a fourth-round draft pick:
“Clearly Johnny Manziel’s stock will go up after this pro day workout; he moves up on my board.”
Everyone knew that Manziel could throw on the run, but he showed that he can get under center and do his work from the pocket – something we did not see often at Texas A&M.
Manziel showed good footwork on his five and seven-step drops as well as the proper mechanics to prove that he can be patient in the backfield while excelling at every type of throw that he tries (only two pro day incompletions).
Scouts were impressed by the accuracy, touch and velocity on Manziel’s deep ball. And his show of power wasn’t too shabby either.
Manziel looked like the ultimate competitor out there ("I was trying to go 65-for-65") and did something that quarterbacks usually do not do during their Pro Days by throwing on the helmet and the pads.
The presence of LeBron James' associates, NFL coaches and general managers and music blaring from Drake were trumped only by the appearance of former President George H.W. Bush and wife Barbara – proving that Manziel is a surefire must see.
Plus owners know that all of the Johnny Football madness would definitely put behinds in the seats.
