Prospect Primer: QB Johnny Manziel, Texas A&M

Posted Apr 21, 2014

Name: Johnny Manziel

Position: QB

Ht.-Wt.: 6-0, 207

School: Texas A&M

Key stat: Accounted for 46 touchdowns in 2013 (37 passing, nine rushing), just one shy of his 47 TDs during his Heisman Trophy-winning season of 2012 (26 passing, 21 rushing).

Notable: His rushing statistics fell off considerably last season, from 1,410 yards and 21 TDs in 2012 to 759 yards and nine TDs in 2013, perhaps a conscious effort to take fewer injury risks and showcase his dropback passing skills.
