Johnny Manziel is the 'most polarizing player' that is available in the NFL Draft, according to NFL Films producer Greg Cosell.
Manziel is known as 'Johnny Football', and the name is even a trademark for the former Texas A&M quarterback, but how good is he really?
Yes, he won the Heisman Trophy as a freshman with the Aggies, and he is the most promising dual-threat QB available in May, but passing accuracy failures are plaguing him to the extent that he's been compared with the infamous Tim Tebow.
Talking to NFL Network, analyst Cosell gave his view of how Manziel can be so polarizing that he can be classed as top five material and not even draft worry at the same time.
"I've studied him maybe the hardest, because he's maybe the most polarizing player. As you evaluate and transition him, there is a wide variation in his play," Cosell told NFL Network.
"He played two games this year, LSU and Missouri,(and) if those were the first two games you put on and watched, you'd say he was almost undraftable," Cosell said. "He was so bad in those two games, that you'd struggle to figure out, can I even draft this guy?"
However, Cosell says there is plenty of positive aspects to Manziel's play, but whether or not that makes him worthy of the overall first pick in the Draft that he's predicted remains to be seen.
"At times, he's shown very strong flashes of structured pocket play that clearly projects to the NFL. So I think it will come down to how you balance these issues. He's much more of a see-it, throw-it quarterback than an anticipation thrower. He's not really a timing and anticipation thrower on film."
