Just about everyone thinks that Johnny Manziel is going to be one of the first quarterbacks taken in the 2014 NFL Draft. But not so fast, says former NFL quarterback Warren Moon. In an interview that he did on Wednesday, Moon revealed that Manziel might have what it takes to be a star in the NFL. But due to his size and his speed, he also might be a bust.
"You're talking about taking a guy number one overall in the draft and he's 5'11," Moon said. "He didn't really run that fast at the combine, only about a 4.6 which was closer to a 4.7, so you are talking about a small guy that's not very fast in an NFL that's big, strong, and fast. He likes to run around and make plays and he was able to do that in college. I just don't know how well that's going to transition into the National Football League."
Moon did say a few nice things about Manziel. But he also said that he fears Manziel could be another Tim Tebow.
"As a college quarterback, he was one of the greatest to ever play," he said, "but so was Tim Tebow. He had a tough time making that transition because he was that same style of quarterback."
Moon obviously isn't alone in his thinking. There are lots of other NFL analysts who have said the same thing. But Moon knows a thing or two about being a great NFL quarterback. So it's interesting to hear his take on Manziel Mania.
