Manziel wows at pro day

Johnny Manziel may have taken a risk by wearing pads and a helmet during his pro day, but ESPN's Ron Jaworski and Jeff Saturday came away impressed. Despite high-profile guests like former President George H.W. Bush in attendance, Manziel didn't seem intimidated -- Jaworski thought his balance and ball control were exceptional, and thought he looked at least as good (if not better) than Blake Bortles and Teddy Bridgewater. It's all the more impressive considering that Manziel's unique talent -- his ability to improvise and make something out of nothing -- isn't really applicable during a pro day's scripted drills. It's just another piece of the puzzle for NFL teams looking to find the next franchise quarterback.
