Johnny Manziel: Ron Jaworski says he wouldn’t take QB in first three rounds

On Tuesday ESPN analyst Ron Jaworski took a bold stand on the topic of Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel’s draft status. The former NFL quarterback claimed he wouldn’t take Johnny Football in the first three rounds.

Jaworski had the following to say to Mike Missanelli on 97.5 The Fanatic in Philadelphia about Manziel after he met with the Eagles at the combine:

I’m a big believer in Nick Foles, but who knows? Manziel may fall. I’m not crazy about him, to be honest with you. I’ve only looked at five games. I wouldn’t take him in the first three rounds. That’s my opinion. It’s incomplete right now. But he has not done a whole lot to me.

Johnny ManzielJaworski is known for his really strong takes on quarterbacks and frankly, he’s usually right. It’s obviously a big-time stretch to call Manziel a day-three pick, but Jaws is a guy who does his homework and he wouldn’t just toss something like that around without looking into Manziel’s play and personality.

Manziel is currently projected as a top five pick and could be the first guy selected overall in the 2014 NFL Draft. He measured in at just under six-feet tall and weighed in at 207 pounds at the combine, while also clocking times of 4.56 and 4.63 in the 40-yard dash. So it was a bit of a mixed bag from the 2012 Heisman Trophy winner. His size was a disappointment – though no one expected him to come in much taller – and his speed was about what was expected.

Manziel will next be on display in late March at Texas A&M’s Pro Day.

About Ryan Phillips


  1. Usually does his homework but in this case admitted he didn’t and that his thoughts are incomplete. Hasn’t done enough? So making history by winning the Heisman as a freshman, and than staying in the race even after losing a couple games last season isn’t much? Child please.

  2. These critics of Johnny Football i think are just really more jealous of the truck loads of money he will be making more than what Johnny will end up doing in football. The games I watched show a kid that can make plays and has the fearless ability to do whatever it takes to get that first down or touchdown.Thats a leader to me of a team game thats flat out brutal. Johnny is willing to put his life on the line for his team to succeed.I’ll take that under 6ft dude over a 6ft 5 dude thats not willing to put himself in harms way for a first down.
