Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel has decided to forgo his final two years of eligibility to enter the NFL draft. According to Gil Brandt on NFL.com, Manziel announced his decision on Wednesday and filed the necessary paperwork. Ever since the Heisman trophy winning quarterback burst onto the college football landscape, it was evident that his days would be numbered in College Station.

Johnny Manziel signed with a marketing agent on Tuesday, and he should be able to capitalize on his fame instantly. Before he steps onto an NFL field, his brand will be as big as any player coming into the league.

Barring any major setback, it looks like Johnny Manziel is a surefire top 10 pick. Still, the process will be long and teams in need of a quarterback will do their due diligence. There’s no doubt that Johnny Manziel’s stock has risen due to decisions of other quarterbacks that decided to stay in college.

Certainly, one NFL organization will be drafting the superstar and his legion of fans. If the Texans are up for the challenge, Johnny Manziel could be staying in Texas for a long time.

Johnny Manziel finished his career at Texas A&M with 63 touchdown passes and 30 rushing touchdowns.
