Johnny Manziel Gives Hint Regarding Status in 2014 NFL Draft
Just how popular can one college football player get? Texas A&M sensation Johnny Manziel is about to find out. Mere weeks after becoming the first freshman to win the Heisman Trophy and creating a loophole for collegiate athletes to legally make money, Manziel is already pondering what lies beyond Aggieland.
The man who has trademarked the nickname “Johnny Football” apparently told college football analyst Kirk Herbstreit that he might enter the 2014 NFL Draft. After all, he was a redshirt freshman in 2012, which means he’ll be eligible to go pro after his redshirt sophomore season at Texas A&M in 2013.

So just what does the future hold for Mr. Football? Obviously those in Aggieland are hoping it consists of at least BCS National Championship title and three more years of excitement at Kyle Field and throughout the SEC. Those same members of the Texas A&M faithful are also confident Manziel’s crazy style of play will translate into the NFL, but others aren’t so sure.
More than one NFL “experts” have already stated Manziel’s shoot-without-aiming style will not work in the the pros and those who think this way are likely dead on. Manziel can throw and throw well, but he looks to run first and Texas A&M’s offense isn’t going to help him prepare for the NFL, so he might not be a surefire top 10 pick like most people think.
But we want to know what you think. Comment below and let us know where you think Manziel will go in the 2014 NFL Draft if he enters it or hit us up on Twitter with the hashtag #RML.
