Manziel's pro potential
 
What are your thoughts? Arm strong enough? Running style fit the new age NFL? Maturity issues on and off the field?

How good of a pro can he be?

Maturity issues could be huge. With the spotlight on him against Rice and he flips the double bird to two Rice guys :lol

Outside of that, I think he could be a middle tier nfl quarterback.

I think he has the potential to be a real solid QB. I don't really ever see him being elite though

Bridgewater's the elite QB this draft. Dude's tools, awareness, ability to read defenses, and passing ability is uncanny

He has a few huge knocks on him RIGHT NOW.

Arm Strength (which can be worked on)
Below Average Height & Frame

The attitude may or may not be an issue to teams. I don't know the guy, so can't comment further.

He does have nice anticipation and escapability..... very good accuracy from what I see.

I'm not sure about him. He's a wild card to me....he could be a non-factor NFL player or a top 15 QB and local fan favorite.

One of the toughest types to predict is when you have a slightly undersized mobile QB. I'm not a big fan but if you don't have a good quarterback it isn't smart to disregard him just because you dislike his attitude. His upside is Russell Wilson. At worst Rex Grossman with footspeed (Grossman hasn't had a great career but he has managed to stick in the NFL for a decade). Nice guy or not he has drive and talent. He hasn't shown an off-field issue serious enough to say he shouldn't be drafted; professional get paid for signings all the time.

Althoug, the size comparison is vaild for Wilson he doesn't have the arm strength(not sure about accuracy) as Wilson. Wilson has a very good arm and had alot of composure in the pocket in college which told me he was going to be an NFL QB. Probably even better than Luck at it as well.

It depends on the system for Manziel. He's obviously going to struggle in a Pro style offense but if he plays in one of those spread offenses designed for the new mobile QB's then he'll probably have a career. I have questions about his arm though. Don't think he's that good of a thrower. As for the maturity stuff that's overrated as the NFL has alot of questionable characters in it that makes Manziel look like an angel.

At the QB position?

Bridgewater > Manziel

And Clowney over everyone if you're talking about the whole draft.

Dudes is short and has personality issues that's not a great mix to be a decent NFL player.
