Jim Harbaugh Would Welcome The Challenge of Johnny Manziel


Johnny Manziel is all the talk of the town before the NFL draft. He had his Pro Day and had a little circus around him while he was tossing the rock around and he impressed some scouts while offending others. Mike Mayock thinks he is the best quarterback in the draft after that Pro Day though.

Manziel has been a playmaker during his days in college and is looking to make that impact on the field with the NFL. Some teams are intimidated in taking Manziel and feel that it would be a risk to take him. Some people like Jim Harbaugh would love to take on the challenge:

“I’d welcome the challenges of taking Johnny Manziel,” Harbaugh said, via the San Francisco Chronicle. “[He] sees the field like nobody I’ve ever seen see the field in college football. You’d love to work with that.”

What happens if Johnny Manziel is sitting on the draft board when the San Francisco 49ers select in the first round? Do the 49ers jump in and select him? Manziel has been projected as the first selection in the draft and also has been given a 3rd round grade. Who knows where he is going to get selected.

Harbaugh would love to take on the challenge. He already has a talented quarterback that he has to work with though. Manziel shouldn’t even be someone he should be worried about at this point.
