Ron Jaworski: "I wouldn't take Manziel in the first three rounds"

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

 

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

No, liar. Both Kiper and McShay had him in the 2nd round. They both were on First Take that year to explain themselves to Bayless. Bayless was the first hype machine(Yes, I do watch that show). He even wrote a long ass article about how Manziel is as fast as Vick and crap . The whole college season was centered around Bridgewater vs Mariota. Manziel was completely off the radar as far as being a top pick. The minute Mariota decided to stay in school they tried to find his replacement and Manziel was their best guy.

 

This was in september of 2013, before the college football season got on the way:

Do we still need this stupid filter? I don't think Tim's being discussed ad nauseum like he was a few years ago when we had to do this.

The only thing I'd "eat crow" on is that you may actually be even dumber than I thought you were.

 

Here's your statement...

 

He was never projected as a 1st rounder even after his final college game.

 

And as proof you post a video of Mel Kiper saying he's a second rounder.  I'm guessing you didn't actually watch the video or listen to what Kiper said, because at 55 seconds into the clip Kiper says he had Manziel in his top 25 on May 8th, but dropped him because of off field incidents that happened over the summer. 

 

May 8th would be well before Manziel's final college game.  Add in that Skip Bayless is arguing in the same clip that he is a first round pick, which contradicts your statement.  Stephen A Smith argues it too.  Kiper is the only one saying he's a second rounder here.  That same Mel Kiper you're citing said, as of February 6th, even before the Combine, that Manziel is the concensus best quarterback in the draft (link)

 

Here are a couple of other links that contradict you.

 

MMQB (September 17, 2013) This is the draft board on Peter King's Monday Morning QB from five months back. Manziel is in the top ten.

 

Shutdown Corner (January 1, 2014) This is an article written right after Manziel's final game.  In it Eric Edholm says Manziel could land in the top ten.

 

NFL.com (September 18, 2013) Charles Goodbread discusses Manziel with four NFL scouts.  Three say he's a first rounder.  One says he's a top ten pick.

 

And to top it all off, the second video you posted where McShay supposedly defends having Manziel in the second round never mentions Manziel, at all.  It does talk about Jameis Winston, whom Kiper declares would be consider far and away the best QB on the board if he were draft eligible.

 

Kiper says he'd be superior "just like Andrew Luck was" :lol:

 

You haven't got a clue, kid.

Teams picking in the bottom of the draft don't normally have needs for QBs. So him being a pick after 25 is nonsense and just people being nice.

That's my point Skip and Bayless were the first ones hyping Manziel.

 

I'm not saying you can't find articles that put Manziel in the 1st round on the web. But throughout the season no one was talking about Manziel as a top pick. When I mentioned his last college game I forgot about his bowl game so I didn't include it. I meant his 12 game season that ended in december. Majority of the talk throughout the college season was centered around Bridgewater and Mariota. That's what the second video is about. Will you find fanatical articles on the web that talk about Manziel in the 1st round? absolutely. Tank for Teddy was rampant. In fact there was a video viral about a Jag fan who made a song about losing out on the Bridgwater sweepstake.

 

In fact, I was listening to a TV broadcast late in december and one of the announcer mentioned how other NFL players were laughing at the prospect of Manziel in their division. Manziel will NOT get drafted in the 1st round. You hear it here first.

Fact still remain Manziel wasn't a 1st round projection late in the season. Especially when he was losing those games against LSU and Missouri. In fact there was an uproar on ESPN radio(98.7) where they ridiculed Kiper's mock. Don't get it twisted cause you found an article on the web. Manziel will NOT be selected in the 1st round.
