The unpredictable timebomb that is Johnny Football

Most teams that are picked high in this year's draft are in desperate need of a game changing quarterback to run their offense. A lot of quarterbacks are on the table for discussion. Teddy Bridgewater from Louisville, Blake Bortles from UCF, and the most talked about quarterback in recent memory that carries a lot of baggage with his name is Johnny Manziel.

We know the Chiefs have a Quarterback for the future in Alex Smith. A guy that has established himself for the franchise long-term. Now, the Chiefs are most likely too low in the draft boards to have necessarily a slim chance to none in qualifying for him. If he falls that low, that is.

But, this isn't about whether or not which team fits his playing style nor the probabilical chance of the Chiefs ownership snagging him. In fact, this is more geared towards the reality of a doubt what chance does Manziel have to last in the NFL. I for one love his playing style on the football field. He brings game changing ability that hasnt been caught on in years. His gun slinging (if you can call it that) style of play is much attributed and similar to Michael Vick's.

Like Vick, his diminutive stature that is brought proves to be the weight that most experts seek as his achilles heel. Much less his attitude and his natural approach to the game is very well spotty. The leadership and confidence is uprising. None of us can grasp what goes on in Manziel's head, demeanor exempled off the field. Nor can anyone of us place him as a certain type of a player, broken down into basic, cut and dry qualities.

Johnny Football will be his own person no matter how many people tell him. Opinions of him being dragged to the ground by opposing front lines, or how he wont be able to escape the pocket every play to then thread the needle in double coverage almost every attmept. Will be immensely talked about until his first career start. Most of all, the discussion should be talked about. Russell Wilson and Drew Brees coming into their rookie seasons were beat on, scrutinzed by every angle. Somehow sprung their team to win a Super Bowl. So let's not get too carried away of what Manziel can and cannot do just yet.
