Thanks to his ability to improvise, his ability to make seemingly impossible throws, and his ability to wow football fans, Johnny Manziel was compared to Brett Favre a lot during his college career. And as we move closer and closer to the 2014 NFL Draft, we're sure that we'll hear a lot more of those comparisons. In fact, even though we're still a few months away from the draft, we're already hearing them now, courtesy of Brett Favre himself.
Favre did an interview with USA Today recently. And during that interview, he admitted that he hadn't seen Manziel play much in college. But from what he had seen, he understood why so many people compared Manziel to him.
"I haven't watched him much, but one game I watched, for like three quarters, was the Ole Miss game," said Favre, who watched Manziel pass for 346 yards, rush for 124 yards, and score two touchdowns. "I almost thought I was watching film of a young Brett Favre."
A "young Brett Favre"? Manzielmania is coming, people. Are you ready?
