Found June 17, 2013 on NFL Draft Zone:
PLAYERS: Johnny Manziel

Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel is not one to hold back his emotions. He’s a very engaging person, both on and off the field, but his actions away from the gridiron can sometimes get him in trouble. After tweeting then deleting, he wishes he was no longer in school, he needs to switch his attitude quickly, per a couple NFL scouts I talked to this morning, here is what they said: “Johnny Manziel is a great football player; college football player that is. He is the bad boy of football so to speak, but his character concerns will be considered by teams. He needs to cool down, he is starting to act as if he is bigger than the game. In the real world stuff is not handed to you, he has had everything handed to him since before the Heisman. Teams will look at that too.” – NFC West scout “Ole Johnny is at it again, I don’t know why. He might be the most hyped 7th rounder ever in the NFL if he comes out. (I asked him why he said seventh round and he replied) Johnny is a good football player, but he is small, he thinks run most of the time, and his line has been amazing since he started. I could throw behind that line.” – NFC East Scout I asked one of the scouts who they would compare Johnny Manziel too and one said A skinnier Tim Tebow, but I would rather have Tebow than Manziel. The other scout said Randall Cunningham but Randall was more athletic and a better passer. He then said to me, “well I guess that was a bad comparison then, wasn’t it, haha.” I have watched every Manziel game and I feel he should not be drafted before the fourth round. So as of right now, if Manziel came out he should not be a top 100 player drafted. There were quarterbacks who were way better (pro ready) than Manziel and they fell to the fourth round ala Matt Barkley. Expect Johnny to stay in the lime light and continue to watch his stock drop.
