Too many question marks with Johnny:

Yes, he was the most explosive college football player in recent memory. Yes, he took a floundering program in Texas A&M and turned it into a title contender in two years. Yes, he was the first freshman to win a Heisman. If I were a general manager, I don’t care one bit about those reasons. Looking at Manziel, he has too many question marks about his ability to play in the NFL. His height, his accuracy, his throwing motions are valid arguments about not drafting this player. I understand for a team starving for a playmaker and a quarterback like the Houston Texans or Jacksonville Jaguars, but not a team like the Dallas Cowboys. Why draft a guy who needs so much more work? I doubt Johnny will hit the floor running and become a top-tier quarterback.  That is too much for a franchise to risk that is just a few pieces away from being a NFC contender.
