Quoted in PFT (link)

Jaworski's usual rep is as a guy who talks up nearly every quarterback out there.

Manziel? Not so much.

After his Kaepernick comment does anyone really take anything this guy says seriously?

Could he drop, right now you would say no, but last year everyone thought Geno Smith was a top 10 guy and he went in second round. ESPN would love for that to happen, Johnny Football dropping out of first round in prime time; coverage would make The Golden Calf of Bristol look tiny

Manziel has reached the cult level of The T.ebow and Luck. Players that are so loved by the media and the general populous that any criticism of them is caused for reprisal and ridicule. It took Michael Jordan over a decade and 5 titles to garner that respect and those guys get it while in college. So it's less to do with sport. It's more an athletic egalitarian movement and the rooting for 'our guy' than anything else.

 

People won't be satisfied until Manziel is selected #1 overall then absolutely poo the bed and send a respectable organization into the sh!tter. You know what they will say when Manziel is pooing his pants, 'yea, Andre Johnson can't get open', 'he has no time in the pocket so he's running for his life', and the best one, 'he's coming to a 2-14 team'. The book has already been written on this and we've all already read it.  I'm not sure what the reasoning for it.

 

A 5'11'' dude run 4.68 and people are raving about his athletic process. What a joke! Where I'm from kids are born running a 4.5, easy. Especially at that miniature height. We watch a 6'6 332 pound man(Greg Robinson) run a 4.91 and then turn around raving about a miniature little dude who run a 4.68. Who are they kidding! Jaws didn't fall onto some new discovery here, just a guy with some balls to be honest.

 

I can assure you, in the coming weeks someone will 'talk some sense' into Jaws and he'll 'watch some more tapes' and Manziel will climb his way back into the 1st round again. Skip Bayless is not gonna like this and he has a lot of weight at ESPN. Unfortunately Jaws will be a company man once again. But it was good to hear his true and honest opinion. Having said all this, I do believe the media will realize they can't hold on to the Manziel charade any longer and he'll start getting projected into the later rounds. There are some people in the media that just won't put their reputation at stake to get behind this Manziel going on now. QB purist like Kurner Warner and Cossell, I doubt will sell their soul and would be disappointed if they did.

I would be tempted to take him in the first overall pick... Doubt he makes it out of the top 10

No doubt he'll go in the top ten.

I'm not a fan, but I acknowledge that's reality.

He was never projected as a 1st rounder even after his final college game. Espn and the other networks manufacture his top 5 projection so they can invite him to Radio City, put the camera on him and watch him sweat drop to the 3rd or 4th round. They saw what happened to Geno so they enjoyed and Manziel is a perfect candidate for that. It's a better story thank if Manziel were selected #1. It's sadistic but I kind of like it too. lol

No way is he falling past Minnesota. If you think otherwise you're kidding yourself, regardless if you think he is worthy of that or not.

He's been projected as a top pick ever since he won the Heisman Trophy.

 

Do you even know what goes on in the real world?  (the evidence says you have no clue)

who can argue the guy is not a playmaker?  only two years of college ball played, with the right coaching he can certainly make a positive impact.  jaws is not a real scout, or we wouldnt be hearing anything from him if he were.  i dont see how the texans can afford to pass on a QB unless they think one of those top 5 will slip to the second round
