Johnny Manziel’s agent announces his client won’t throw at the combine Source15 Feb, 01:39 AM
No surprise here as all the top rated quarterbacks usually chose not to throw at the combine in part because they prefer to throw in private workouts for teams using receivers they are familiar with. Maziel's agent tweeted Friday evening that Manziel, "will do all of his throwing at his March 27th Pro Day & private workouts. Teams will have all the time & access they want."

ESPN analyst Mel Kiper Jr. is fluent in the language of the NFL Draft.
He's been speaking it since the 1970s.
Kiper shared another lesson on all-things draft with an hour-long conference call on Thursday.
Perhaps the most notable takeaway from the call was Kiper's opinion on Texas A&M's popular quarterback Johnny Manziel.
The 2012 Heisman Trophy-winning player known as "Johnny Football," appears to be the top quarterback in this year's draft class.
"When you talk to people in the league, he’s kind of the consensus No. 1 quarterback," said Kiper, who sees several teams being interested in taking the play-making quarterback in the top 10.
"He is in the mix for Houston, Jacksonville, Cleveland, Oakland, Minnesota – all those teams need quarterbacks," Kiper said. Source6 Feb, 04:06 PM
Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel has picked agents to represent his interests in the NFL once he declares his intention to enter the draft, which is widely anticipated.
Manziel told ESPN's Brett McMurphy on Monday that he remains undecided whether to return to school next season or declare for the NFL draft. Manziel said he wants to meet with his family before making a decision on his future. Source7 Jan, 08:02 PM
If Johnny Football does indeed make himself eligible for this year's NFL Draft, early expectations are that he would be the first quarterback off the board, possibly landing with the Cleveland Browns who have the fourth overall pick in the draft, or the Vikings at eight.
