He definitely has what it takes to be a top 5-10 NFL QB. Will he though?
He's not anywhere close to being as douchy as his critics will want you to believe.
College measurements/10. Rueben Randle was also supposed to be 6'4" and 215 pounds.
I wouldn't be shocked if Manziel goes about 5'11" and 200 pounds. He's got a very slight frame, Wilson looks like a drug-addled bodybuilder compared to him. Does this matter if you're a pocket QB, not nearly as much, but if you're going to be running around, you'd better have some bulk to help you absorb some big hits out in the open. Dan Reeves was on the radio here in Phoenix and he talked about the difference between Vick who he coached, and guys like Kaepernick, Wilson, Newton and Luck is that all the latter were very well built while Vick had a slight frame, he also couldn't figure out how to f**king slide, even after the Falcons hired a baseball player to teach him. Reeves said that because of the build these guys have, they are able to better absorb hits and will likely not be as injury-prone as some of the "running QB's" before them.
