Who in the good fuging world say that Manziel is even CLOSE to being as athletic as Mike Vick????????????????
1. Vick ran a 4.33, reports even say as low as a 4.25 clocked, Johnny is running over a 4.5
2. Vick had a RPG attached to his shoulder
Manziel will be lucky to be as quarter as good as Vick was among grown men
Vick was the poster child for 'phenomenal athlete / crappy quarterback'. He could throw the ball a mile but football is about throwing the ball to a spot, and in that area, he was found wanting.
That, plus awful field vision. The only receiver he could ever consistently in Atlanta see was Alge Crumpler. Throw in that after Monte Kiffin found if you rushed him from the left he was basically useless, a lot of people followed suit. Likewise, once the Panthers started spying him with Thomas Davis, he couldn't beat us running anymore and his passing skills just didn't cut it. That was always the deal with Vick. Keep him from running and he had no shot at beating you passing.
On the flipside, Bridgewater is a great passer. The worry about him is his size. How many sub-200 pound quarterbacks do you see in the NFL? Hoping he bulks up and can take the hits because he should be a great QB if he can take the pounding.
Manziel? The next Ryan Leaf. Greg Cosell broke down just how inconsistent he was in a recent story. Someone will likely take a shot at him, and that someone will be wasting a high pick.
