One NFL general manager who spoke to CBS Sports’ Mike Freeman thinks A&M's Johnny Manziel will end up being better than RGIII, Andrew Luck and Russell Wilson, all of whom starred as rookies in 2012.

"One general manager said Manziel, the first freshman to win the Heisman, will be better than the current crop of young athletic quarterbacks. He will rival or be better than Robert Griffin III or Andrew Luck or Russell Wilson. This, to me, sounds patently insane. But this general manager was not alone.

Another said almost the same thing. “He could end up being a more accurate passer than any of those three,” said the GM."

He could end up being better than RGIII or Wilson, but I think that Luck is going to end up in the Hall of Fame if he avoids serious injury.

Would love to see what GM's were saying about Tim Tebow after he won a National Championship and Heisman Trophy...

And this is why no one takes the The Cleveland Browns or Oakland Raiders serious!

could also just be building him for other teams to draft him. hype him up, even if you truly don't believe in him. or maybe they do genuinely feel this way.

Thought he created a lot of plays on the run as opposed to being in the pocket with his great scramble ability, but his arm did not seem very impressive to me like luck, rgIII, or Wilson.

Apparently this idiot GM didn't watch his throws. Manziel can only create plays with his feet and throw accurately under 6 yards. He does not have the NFL throws; the deep out, etc and will be a bust. Book it. Did this happen to be the Raiders GM?
