"All of the things that happened out in Los Angeles, the commercials and all that stuff; the position of quarterback in the NFL is such an important position and the reason these guys need to be a totally football-minded guy is the pressure of the position and being the face of an NFL team and doing everything right. That's the thing you want to know about him - will he be into work early every single day? Will be the last to leave? Will he be the guy that is working the hardest to get better?"

NFL | Johnny Manziel shines at pro day

Thu, 27 Mar 2014 11:15:20 -0700

Texas A&M QB Johnny Manziel showed that he has the makings of a starting quarterback in the NFL during his pro day Thursday, March 27. "He showed us he can make all the throws," NFL Network analyst Kurt Warner said. "That deep ball was impeccable. Great touch, good enough velocity and was able to set it out there." Manziel completed 61 of 64 passes. NFL Network analyst Mike Mayock said Manziel's arm strength was at least as strong as Central Florida QB Blake Bortles' and stronger than Louisville QB Teddy Bridgewater's.

Fantasy Tip: Manziel is expected to be a top-five pick in this year's draft, with the Houston Texans, Jacksonville Jaguars, Cleveland Browns and Oakland Raiders as possible landing spots. He'll likely be starting in Week 1 with whichever organization he lands with.
