Texas A&M QB Johnny Manziel won't throw at NFL scouting combine
Johnny Manziel will be showing off his arm before May's NFL Draft, he just won't be doing it at the NFL scouting combine or at Texas A&M's March 5 pro day.
Johnny Football won't throw a football at the NFL scouting combine. Erik Burkhardt, the agent for Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel, tweeted on Friday that Manziel won't be throwing until his individual pro day on March 27.
Manziel will also throw during private workouts with individual teams leading up to May's NFL Draft. Besides the combine, Johnny Football also won't be throwing at Texas A&M's pro day, which is scheduled for March 5.
The NFL combine is scheduled for Feb. 19-25 in Indianapolis. Quarterback passing drills -- the ones Manziel won't be participating in -- are scheduled for Sunday, Feb. 23.
The decision not to throw at the combine probably won't have too much affect on Manziel's draft status. Johnny Football is currently the No. 3-rated quarterback and No. 7 prospect overall, according to the ratings over at NFLDraftScout.com.
Where Manziel will end up is anyone's guess at this point. In their latest CBSSports.com mock drafts, Pat Kirwan and Rob Rang have Manziel headed for Jacksonville at No. 3, while Pete Prisco and Dane Brugler have Johnny Football headed for Cleveland with the fourth overall pick.
Manziel might not even drop that far though. On Friday, Johnny Football said if the Texans don't select him with the No. 1 overall pick, "It would be the worst decision they've ever made."
