Johnny Manziel's Pro Day draws all-time Twitter snark
Crowdsourcing at its finest, Johnny Manziel's Pro Day drew some hilarious comments from the public sphere.
In case you hadn’t heard, Johnny Manziel held his Pro Day on Thursday, which predictably drew some high-quality Twitter snark.
For some context to Thursday’s circus, Manziel threw with a former president in attendance, while Drake was bumping from the speakers, while wearing a helmet, pads and camo pants, while being harassed by a man chasing him with a broom. The last part supposedly simulated what Manziel might face on Sundays.

Offer up these props to the general Twittersphere, and the masses won’t disappoint. A sampling:
It’s clear from the coverage that Johnny Manziel’s Pro Day is the most important event in the history of humankind.— Awful Announcing (@awfulannouncing) March 27, 2014
Can't disagree here.

Not sure who he was referring to, but we'll take it. Onward!

Possibly the best comment of the entire ordeal. Mark Ennis couldn't possibly have been referring to the time the Aggies defense allowed 48 points and 661 yards to Duke in the Chick-fil-A bowl this past season. Nope, not a chance.

I'd like to see President Bush chase Johnny in his golf cart.

Golf claps all around, but if Manziel really wanted to sock it to the NFL, he would ...

Like snark on Twitter, some things don't ever change.
Cleverly, Nike was quick to capitalize on all the Manziel buzz.
And finally, this last one needs a bit of context. ESPN NFL expert Ron Jaworski made headlines when he said that he wouldn't draft Manziel in the first three rounds. After JFF's stellar showing on Thursday, Jaws reversed course and said he'd move Manziel up on his draft board, prompting SI's media critic to re-evaluate Jaws.
