Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel officially declared for the NFL today, according to ESPN.
Manziel electrified the country in college football’s toughest conference for two seasons, but the redshirt sophomore is going to compete at football’s toughest level. Manziel posted the two best seasons – in terms of total yards – in SEC history, and he became the first freshman to ever win a Heisman Trophy. He leaves with the SEC’s highest career completion rate with 68.9 percent and career yards per game average with 384.2.
Manziel has been projected as a top-five pick by most draft projections, and Sunday football just added more entertainment value.
