Johnny Manziel still undecided on entering 2014 NFL Draft
Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel said Monday that he is still undecided about forgoing his final two years of college eligibility and entering the 2014 NFL Draft.
“I want to make the right decision that’s best for me and my family,” Manziel told ESPN.com’s Brett McMurphy Monday night, while attending the BCS National Championship game between Auburn and Florida State.
Manziel has two years of eligibility remaining, but he is widely expected to be a first-round pick if he declares for the draft — possibly a Top-10 pick.
SI.com’s Peter King spoke with one team in December that believes either Manziel or UCF quarterback Blake Bortles could be the top quarterback taken in the draft. Bortles declared for the draft on Monday.
In his second season as Texas A&M’s starter, Manziel threw for 4,114 yards while completing almost 70 percent of his passes. He had 37 touchdowns and 13 interceptions. Manziel also ran for 759 yards and nine touchdowns.
