    With Ryan Tannehill coming to our Dolphins, the Texas A&M program got themselves John Manziel... Johnny Football..... and now this kid has become the first freshman in history to win the Heisman. This kid is going to be really great....... he's destroying OKLA right now in the cotton bowl.....

    if Tannehill doesn't work out, we need to draft this kid. I am sick and tired of missing out on sure fire draft picks. We missed out on Luck and look at the Colts now.

    Can't see him being near as good at the next level. Love watching him play at A&M, but I'll pass on him in the draft.

    I wouldn't bet against him, but this is a stupid premise for a thread.

    Has Doug Flutie written all over him - I would have a hard time selecting any smallish running QB -over a QB who will stand in the pocket and can read a Defense

    technically he can enter next year as he is a RS freshmen. Either way, as good as Johnny Football is, he has a lot of his weaknesses hidden in the offense Sumlin and Kingsbury brought to A&M with them. I'm 99% certain that Tannehill would have looked amazing in that offense as well. Again not taking anything away from Johnny Football, but the spread hides weaknesses of a lot of QBs.

    He's a good player, but that offense made Case Keenum look all-world. I take a wait and see approach on Johnny Football.

    Not just Keenum, Sumlin's offense is based off the Mike Leach/Hal Mumme Air Raid. His first OC was Leach assistant Dana Holgorson and his next OC was arguably the best QB to play under Leach Kliff Kingsbury. So the offense has made the following QBs have record setting seasons...

    Kliff Kingsbury (though he's a great coach)
    BJ Symmons
    Sonny Cumbie
    Graham Harrell
    Chase Keenum
    Jason White
    Josh Huepel
    Geno SMith (though he's gonna get a shot at being a pro)

    Can Manziel play WR? He may be good with that at the next level

    It would be unprecedented to draft a HS Sr... this isn't the NBA you know.

    Sounds just like the media people falling in love with a player after 2-3 good games(Christian Ponder at the beginning of this season) Johnny is a fun college player who has talent but like several others said who knows how he looks with the big boys in the NFL. But he is fun to watch right now.

    Unfortunately for this site, it was predictable. Only thing that surprises me is that it took this long for someone to create the thread.

    Kingsbury also is a super bowl champ. Granted he didnt play, but I like that guy. I remember watching him play hs ball when I was 7 years old.

    And yall bet your asses Manziel is an nfl prospect. One more year like this year and I could see him declaring for the 2014 draft.

    I don't know about Manziel... too early to tell.

    I'm still holding out hope for Pat White to have a breakout season as that 44th overall pick stud Ireland loved so much....

    wait a second

    :(

    Well youve got one whole season to study to come to a conclusion of whether you think he's an nfl prospect. Which will probably end up being 50% of all of his college tape.

    Pat white was a Parcells pick so if ireland sees manziel and pat white as similar prospects, you can be sure hes not on our radar.

    You can argue that BP had his hand up Ireland's pie-hole all you want. Ireland wanted Ireland to pick White. Ireland was high on White. Hell, he's probably still high.

    I don't trust QBs who rely so heavily on their ability to run--make plays w/their feet, rather than their arm. Look at what happened to RG III and WASHINGTON.

    Get real, Tannehill is fine and Manziel is a FRESHMAN.

    Do I have to name off the college QB's who won heisman's and tore up college football....only to flop in the NFL?

    I don't get this forum sometimes. Why do we either have the wrong QB or Manziel is a bust? I like both of them, they are very different QB's though. IMO Tannehill would have thrived in this A&M system this year just like Manziel has. Tannehill is the better passer and the better athlete and I am happy to have him. It will be interesting to see how Manziel develops in the next few years.

    I will stick with RT. He has looked good for a rookie. Time will only tell.

    Yea, Heisman trophy winning QBs that are athletic, rarely fail in the NFL.

    Manziel looks to be an Awesome talent, but if you look at how Tannehill played after playing most of his career at WR and then coming in mid-season of his 3rd year, is almost as amazing as a Rookie having a great 1st year.....you know who also had an above average 1st year in College.....Chad Henne.

    Could Manziel be the real deal when he reaches the NFL, sure, but don't expect it to be a definite, history has shown us superstars in college, don't exactly continue on that road in the NFL.
