Manziel NFL draft 2014? You knew it was happening!
According to an ESPN report on Jan. 8, Johnny Manziel the flamboyant Texas A&M signal caller will enter the 2014 NFL draft, forgoing his final two seasons of eligibility with the Aggies.
ESPN reported earlier today:
"The 2012 Heisman Trophy winner filed the official paperwork to declaring himself eligible for the draft on Wednesday. Manziel's decision was reported earlier Wednesday by NFL Network."
This kid may come off a bit arrogant, but barring any significant injuries, Manziel is going to be a star in the NFL.
Manziel's freshman season was incredible.
He was the first freshman in college football history to win the Heisman Trophy, and he set the SEC single-season total offense record by accounting for 5,116 yards. So how do you follow up a season like that? How about by setting Texas A&M's single-season record for passing yards with 4,114, finishing 11 yards shy of becoming college football's first sophomore to account for 10,000 career yards.
Add to that this kids determination and moxy and some NFL team is going to get a good quarterback.
In sports, just like in everything, nothing is a sure thing. While he may not be the next Tom Brady or Peyton Manning, he does bring a lot to the table and should be a success on Sunday's.
