The volume of NFL Draft chatter is deafening as we sit just days away from the first selections inside Radio City Music Hall. Over the weekend, new Texas defensive coordinator Vance Bedford raised some eyebrows with some Johnny Manziel analysis on Twitter.
Manziel is a top 10 pick by the scouts. I wish him the best. He played backyard ball for 3 years. Now he will have to learn how to be a Qb— Vance Bedford (@CoachBedfordUT) May 5, 2014
Fans reacted instantly, as one might expect given the current state of Texas-Texas A&M relations, and Bedford quickly began to clarify his stance.
No one took a@shot at manziel. Get a life people. Spread qbs have struggled in the NFL. The eagles run the spread in the NFL— Vance Bedford (@CoachBedfordUT) May 5, 2014
It is funny. I wish manziel the best. Spread qbs struggle in pro style offense. Peyton and Brady are in the gun reading defenses— Vance Bedford (@CoachBedfordUT) May 5, 2014
