PASADENA, Calif. -- Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel told ESPN on Monday afternoon he is still undecided whether to return next season or declare for the NFL draft.

Manziel said he wants to meet with his family in the coming days before making a decision on his future.

Manziel was attending Monday's VIZIO BCS National Championship between Florida State and Auburn.

"I want to make the right decision that's best for me and my family," Manziel said.

Manziel has two years of eligibility remaining at A&M, but most draft analysts consider him to be a potential first-round pick if he decides to turn professional.

In his mock draft, ESPN's Todd McShay rated Manziel as the fourth overall pick, but the third quarterback after Teddy Bridgewater and Blake Bortles.

Manziel is rated as the No. 14 player on Mel Kiper Jr.'s Big Board, and Scouts Inc. ranks him as the 22nd-best player.
