Ron Jaworski’s Harsh Take on Manziel

Did you hear what former Philadelphia Eagles quarterback and current ESPN NFL analyst Ron Jaworski said about Johnny Manziel?

“Manziel may fall,” Jaworski said during a radio interview on 97.5 the Fanatic in Philadelphia. “I’m not crazy about him, to be honest with you. I’ve only looked at five games. I wouldn’t take him in the first three rounds. That’s my opinion. It’s incomplete right now. But he has not done a whole lot to me.”

Manziel has always been a polarizing draft evaluation. He’s not a traditional quarterback by any stretch of the imagination. At 5-11, he’s smaller than ideal. And he didn’t play in a pro-style offense at Texas A&M.

Draft grades on Manziel will vary greatly as a result.
The reality of the situation is Jaworski, like any other analyst, has preferences. He tends to prefer traditional quarterbacks that pick defenses apart from the pocket. Players such as Peyton Manning and Tom Brady are still the pinnacle of the sport. Andrew Luck is the next great thing.

However, Jaworski should at least acknowledge the NFL is changing. The play of Drew Brees, Russell Wilson and Cam Newton have changed the way the league views quarterback play.
A team doesn’t need a pure pocket passer to be successful in today’s NFL.
There will be teams that feel similarly to Jaworski, but the old draft adage is, “It only takes one team.”

    1. Yeah, well at least Ron’s take is based on knowledge, as opposed the this writer who carelessly uses incorrect examples. Drew Brees style likened to Wilson tor Newton? Yer kiddin’ right? Brees is a pure pocket passer. Yes, he can scramble, but Manning, Rogers, Cutler, and Brady can be elusive as well. It is NOT their main plan like with Wilson, Kaepernick, or Newton.
