As if you expected anything different, reports say that Johnny Manziel and Mike Evans will enter the NFL Draft after the Chick-fil-A Bowl. Obviously, Manziel nor Evans have confirmed or will confirm anything until after the bowl game.
NFL.com’s Gil Brandt had the report.
No surprise but Manziel and Evans will be playing final college games tomorrow, multiple sources tell me. #TAMUvsDUKE

Manziel has been prolific over the last two seasons putting up serious numbers in the Texas A&M offense under Kevin Sumlin, while Evans’ game went to another level in 2013. Both are draft-eligible sophomores, and both are projected as first-round picks.
Evans’ game is more obvious how it translates to the NFL. With his 6-5, 225-pound frame, Evans will have general managers and scouts drooling at the NFL Combine, while Manziel’s NFL prospects is sure to become a hot topic leading up to draft day in May.
