With Peyton Manning playing in his third Super Bowl this coming weekend, Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel's Bob McGinn took a look back on what he was told about Peyton Manning before the 1998 Draft. While a lot of people were high on him, not everyone was gung-ho on the former Tennessee QB...
quote:

“Florida intimidated him,” an AFC personnel director said. “You really like him because of the personality and all the intangibles but, boy, you’ve got be a little mobile in this league. He has been so well-coached, too … He’s a self-made player, let’s put it that way. I don’t know how much better he’s going to get.”

“He grew up in a football family,” an NFC scout said. “He’s got football genes. He studied the hell out of the tape … If we’re playing with Erik Kramer, you’d have to think that he could start in the league. This kid’s intelligence, work habits, leadership probably are going to take him a long, long way. But I don’t know how much more Manning will improve in pro ball.”
