NFL GM believes Johnny Manziel can be better than RG3, Luck and Wilson

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.

    YOU KNOW WHAT: That NFL scout who said re: Johnny Football “he believes Manziel “has Canada written all over him.”” I wish these “scouts” who make bold predictions such as this one: WHEN THEY’RE WRONG; the lose their job.
    I’ve seen Johnny play and he is FANTASTIC !! Out of this world. Yes, he’s that good. I believe that if Johnny were Black, the scout would NOT have said those idiotic almost slanderous things about him. But since Johnny is white,, I guess he’s ‘fair game’.
    Let me relate to you a story about CRITICS:
    It was Fred Astaire’s FIRST screen test. Afterward the CRITIC said:
    “Well, he can’t act……….and he can’t sing…………………..he can dance……………….a little.”
    So there you go. DEAD WRONG.
    Go Johnny Go.
    He just needs to remember that as a pro, everything he says or does will be looked at via the media’s fine comb and blown up all out of proportion.
    I THINK we’re looking at a prodigy. He’s better than Matt Barclay (USC), he’s better than Cam Newton (Panthers), time will tell if he’s better than Colin Kaeprenick (49ers).
    One other thing: Durability. After he gets leveled by NFL speed linebackers, does he get back up or is he ‘down for the count’?
    Let’s give the guy a chance before the critics all send him to Canada.
