this much I know - Johnny Football is too small for the NFL and I wouldn't waste a first round pick on the kid. He has the heart but not the size. A few hits and he is on the disabled list for good. I would take him in the third round but that's it.

Russel Wilson will have GMs and coaches overlooking size, at least for a while.

Wally West

RW played in a pro style at Wisconsin and NC state. Plus, he doesn't rely on his improvisation /mobility.

I totally agree with you. Manziel may go in the first round -- he does come with a lot of hype -- but I don't see him as a franchise QB due to two facets. One, as you'd already mentioned, is his size. He's too small. I'm surprised he didn't get hurt while in the SEC. And the second...he's a prima donna; not a team player. Like Favre. Only Favre DID have "NFL QB" size.

And speaking of "prima donnas"....Jadeveon Clowney. I know he's got a ton of talent, but are the coaches going to be prepared to put up with this guy? Might he become a cancer in the locker room? How badly does Houston really need a DE?
