We have no idea how good Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel when he enters the NFL.  But one NFL general manager believes he can be better than Robert Griffin III, Russell Wilson and Andrew Luck, according to Mike Freeman of CBS Sports. One general manager said Manziel, the first freshman to win the Heisman, will be better than the current crop of young athletic quarterbacks. He will rival or be better than Robert Griffin III or Andrew Luck or Russell Wilson. This, to me, sounds patently insane. But this general manager was not alone.   Another said almost the same thing. “He could end up being a more accurate passer than any of those three,” said the GM. An NFL scout believes Manziel will be an NFL bust and will have to play in the CFL. Yet an NFL scout said he thinks Manziel might have a difficult time staying on an NFL roster. He contends that Manziel isn’t as accurate a passer or as good an athete as any of the young star passers like RG3 or Wilson. That scout believes Manziel “has Canada written all over him.” While people have their opinions on Manziel, I will say that he won’t last in the NFL if people are getting the best of him in small College Station, Texas.     Need NFL Tickets?
