"I've seen Michael Jordan and Oscar Robertson," Switzer said. "Well, let me tell you, Johnny Manziel is the first football player I've seen that can control the game like those guys did basketball. It's unbelievable the numbers that he can put up against the competition game after game after game."
"I don't like some of his antics. I'm sure Kevin Sumlin didn't either," Switzer said, referring to Texas A&M's head coach. "That all aside, let me tell you, he is a great, great football player. And I predict he'll be drafted within the first five picks if he's not the first pick overall. I bet he'll be No. 1 on a lot of people's board."
NFL Media senior analyst Gil Brandt would agree with Switzer; Manziel was Brandt's No. 1 draft prospect when his rankings were released last month.
