At a media event for Thursday's College Football Awards show, Texas A&M QB Johnny Manziel talked about being ready for the 2014 NFL Draft. Per Gabe Bock @TexAgsRadio on Twitter...

"Manziel: I've gotten better as a complete quarterback. I'm a more accurate passer and have improved in my pocket awareness.

Manziel: Biggest factor [for NFL] is, "Am I ready for the next level?" You don't want to be unprepared for NFL and leave 2 years on table.

Manziel: I'll sit down in the next few weeks and talk to [my mentors and coaches] to see if I'm ready for the NFL. In my mind, I am ready."

I'd love the Saints to get him to learn from Brees for 5 years like Aaron Rodgers and Brett Favre.

Brees is the man, but he can't have more than 3 or 4 years at this level left IMO and lingering injuries become more likely as he gets older.

I think he's as good as he is going to be in the NFL. Which isn't saying much.

if he doesn't make it in the NFL he can always fall back on his good looks to be successful

I'm not quite so sure. I don't think he's ready to come in and lead a team as a rookie. But I do think it would be good for him to come in behind a veteran player and really learn to develop. Manziel is a project. I think he has nice upside. But he real need to mature before he ever meets his potential imo.

I think LSU showed otherwise. Contain his running and you contain him...
