Daniel Jeremiah: Johnny Manziel's escapability 'best I've seen'

ATLANTA -- NFL Media analyst and former NFL scout Daniel Jeremiah took a closer look at Texas A&M star Johnny Manziel's game film this week and came away with some stark impressions.

Manziel's dizzying two-year college career is expected to end after Tuesday's Chick-fil-A Bowl against Duke. A third-year sophomore, Manziel, along with star wide receiver Mike Evans, will not return to the Aggies next season and opt for the NFL draft, according to NFL Media senior analyst Gil Brandt.

With scouts projecting Manziel at various points in the first round, the Chick-fil-A Bowl will no doubt be among the most heavily scouted bowls this season. Credentialed NFL clubs for the game include the Cleveland Browns, who reportedly are very interested in Manziel; Pittsburgh Steelers; Tennessee Titans; and St. Louis Rams.

NFL Media analyst Bucky Brooks, also a former NFL scout, will be looking for pocket presence and arm talent in Manziel's skill set.

"They want to see how he finishes. This is not really the biggest game because of Duke, but how does he finish and bounce back from his last two games," Brooks said.
