Loved Manziel as college QB, as electric & exciting as they come. Don’t see him transitioning to NFL successfully. Saying I hate him is dumb

I derived some estimated sack data — have Carr at 1.7%, Bridgewater 6.0%, Bortles 5.5%, Murray 3.6%, Manziel 4.0%, Mettenberger 6.8%. — Football Perspective (@fbgchase) March 9, 2014
I think my top-5 QB rankings have been pretty much set in stone for awhile: 1) Bridgewater 2) Bortles 3) Carr 4) Manziel 5) Garoppolo — Dane Brugler (@dpbrugler) March 4, 2014
There are five legitimate candidates to go No. 1 to the Texans. They are rushers Clowney & Mack, QBs Bortles & Bridgewater & OT Robinson.

A handful of evaluators have greater confidence re: Buffalo LB Khalil Mack than Jadeveon Clowney. Mack’s skills, consistency & versatility

Who are you more afraid to play against; Clowney or Bridgewater? Because chances are whatever guy we pass on ends up a Jaguar. #Texans

I feel like Watkins and Manziel are the biggest wildcards inside the top 6 picks. Bortles will fall out of top 7 if he doesn’t go 1st
