RTC: The Manziel dilemma

Call it the Johnny Manziel dilemma.

There are many reasons teams are hesitant to draft Manziel: his height (5-foot-11), his three-quarters delivery, his slight frame and durability issues, and questions about whether he can operate from the pocket and his willingness to work on his craft. But there's also a big draw, too: the potential that he will become a huge star and change the fate of a franchise.

Those are the things that Scouts Inc.'s Todd McShay says quarterback-needy teams like the Jacksonville Jaguars must weigh in deciding whether to draft Manziel. Here's part of his breakdown on whether Manziel could be a fit with the Jaguars:

"... There’s no question he has the 'it' factor -- come on, President Bush was at his pro day -- but what made [Russell] Wilson stand out the most was that he prepared like a 10-year starter from the day he arrived. They’ll have to be confident Manziel will put the work in he needs to succeed."
