Johnny Manziel has thrived during the draft evaluation period. His pro day went off without a hitch and made an impression on some of his most vocal detractors (see: Ron Jaworski) with his improved throwing mechanics, he ran the fastest QB 40 at the combine and apparently, Johnny Fu**in Football also aced the Wonderlic test.
I've been told Johnny Football had the highest wonderlic test of all the top QB's in this years draft— John Middlekauff (@JohnMiddlekauff) April 10, 2014

It's looking more likely that Manziel will be drafted in the top five picks. He's done everything that could be asked of him and while the game tape matters, his preparation and surprising professionalism has been outstanding enough that teams will overlook his flaws for a chance to Manziel to fulfill his potential as their starting quarterback.
