Raiders GM Impressed With Johnny Manziel: “He’s A Playmaker”


Oakland Raiders GM Reggie McKenzie spoke to the media today and talked about a number of different things. He was asked about Texas A&M QB Johnny Manziel and McKenzie believes that he is a playmaker and that is the type of player that you shoot for.

With the 5th pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, the Oakland Raiders select… Johnny Manziel?

With the 5th pick, the Raiders might have the opportunity to select Manziel and add him onto the roster. Manziel is an athlete and is a playmaker, but there are a lot of question marks that surround him. The biggest question is his size and his durability at the next level. For a quarterback that runs around as much as he does, he will be taking a beating at the NFL level. Can he hold up?

If the Oakland Raiders decide to select him, the team better invest on other weapons on offense and an offensive line to help him out. He won’t be able to run away from everyone… or will he?

    I would be really upset if we draft him. He is a future bust.

    I would to and I dont put much stock in RM and QB evaluations. The last paragraphs exactly what they should do for TP who atleast has size and speed with no weapons! instead of having an undersized QB that will be a complete rookie running for his life. This guy is the wrong pic and will set us back atleast 3 years to develop to the NFL. Whatever happened to RM saying that the trenches needed to be addressed yet he has not done it! Im starting to believe RM and DA both are nothing but bull shitters and playing MD for a fool. They have no idea how to evaluate players or run an NFL squad!
