Since Johnny Manziel tweeted that he can't wait to get out of college football, a lot of speculation has begun about what kind of quarterback Manziel will be in the NFL. He's athletic, and he has the measurables, but that doesn't necessarily mean he'll make a smooth transition to the pro game. Mike Freeman of CBS Sports took the time to ask some general managers around the NFL what they thought of Manziel, and predictably, there was no consensus opinion of the young quarterback. "He could end up being a more accurate passer than any of those three," one GM told Freeman of Manziel in comparison to Andrew Luck, Robert Griffin III and Russell Wilson. Despite some very positive reviews, Manziel also had his detractors. One scout told Freeman Manziel will have a difficult staying in the league, and continued by saying Manziel "has Canada written all over him." Another scout said the most Manziel could hope to be was Jeff Garcia. When we do see Manziel enter the NFL draft, there's no doubt his height will be a factor, despite successful quarterbacks lacking a tall stature. At 6'1", Manziel will undoubtedly be knocked down the draft board by some teams, while others may not care so much about his height. Manziel's accuracy will also be hotly debated, making this coming season that much more important. If he can show that he's a consistent, accurate passer, look for Manziel to shoot up the draft board and become a legitimate candidate for quarterback needy teams, and trust me, there will be a lot of them.
