It’s September, which can only mean one thing: College football is back! Here’s a few things we learned this opening weekend:
The Cleveland Browns selected Johnny Manziel last night with the 22nd overall pick in the draft. As I said here I think that Manziel will be a huge draft bust, now I am really sticking with my gut. The Ravens will get to play the great “College” quarterback twice a year. Going to the Browns has to be a worst case scenario for Manziel who still needs to learn how to be a potcket passer and will play in the hard nose AFC North.
The AFC North is a tough division, it is where the big boys play and I do not think Manziel is big enough to play six games a season against the Ravens, Pittsburgh Steelers and Cincinnati Bengals. The quarterbacks in the AFC North have to be big to withstand the hits that come in the division. Manziel is only 210 pounds, Joe Flacco and Ben Roethlisberger are both about 240 pounds and still have come away with injuries.
It is no secret that Johnny Manziel is entering the NFL draft after only his Sophomore season. Historically, I have been very good at predicting quarterback busts, I predicted that Brady Quinn, Mark Sanchez, JaMarcus Russel and Matt Leinart would be busts. Manziel is the next quarterback that that I predict will be a bust.
This is nothing against Manziel, he is a fantastic college quarterback and a fantastic football player. Manziel is mobile but I do not think this speed will translate as well in the NFL and he needs better ball protection. Manziel also does not have the strongest arm. In bad weather I highly doubt that Manziel will be effective against NFL defenses.
