One NFL scout believes Johnny Manziel is more talented than Drew Brees, according to Bob McGinn of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel.
“He’s more talented than the guy at New Orleans (Drew Brees),” one scout said, per McGinn. “His arm’s not as strong as (Michael) Vick’s but he’s farther along in the passing game. He’s not very far along, but farther than Vick was. He’s better than (Doug) Flutie, faster and better than (Russell) Wilson. He reminds me a little bit of (Joe) Montana. Fluid, and even though off-balance he can get the ball out. Has big hands (9 7/8 inches) for a little guy. To me, the only thing holding him back is the off-the-field and if he’s committed to coming in on Mondays and Tuesdays.”
Manziel could be more talented than Brees, but talent only takes you so far in the NFL.
