Manziel, nicknamed ‘Johnny Football,’ bumped fists with Tebow, a fellow Heisman Trophy recipient, briefly taking the attention away from the championship game, eventually won by Florida State University, who beat Auburn 34-31.
Manziel To Enter NFL Draft?
Other than rubbing elbows with Tim Tebow, Manziel revealed to ESPN that he is still in the process of making a decision on whether to return to Texas A&M for the new season next year or enter into the NFL draft. The Texas A&M quarterback is currently a sophomore, but his young age is certainly not holding him back. Many draft analysts have declared Manziel as a first-round pick, according to ESPN.
That said, some analysts question Manziel’s level of maturity and ability to be responsible to an NFL team. Manziel has a reputation of partying, and has made no mention of wanting to stop. He was caught drinking underage in January, 2013 – he has since turned 21 – and plead guilty to a misdemeanor resulting from a 2012 bar fight in August, 2013.
Manziel insists that no decisions have been made regarding his professional future. He told reporters on Monday that he needed to consult with his family, saying, “I want to make the right decision that's best for me and my family.”
