Watch Johnny Manziel catch footballs on a jet-ski like an NFL receiver

Published Add your comment

Johnny Manziel tested out his receiving skills over the Easter weekend, taking leave from his usual role at signal-caller.

Although, in true Johnny Football style, the former Aggies quarterback had to take things to the next level - hopping on a jet-ski to receive perfectly reel in a pass in the spring sun in this video posted to his Instagram account.

The young QB has been much maligned over recent months in the run up to the 2014 NFL Draft, with analysts and former pros alike questioning his ability to make the transition from college ball.

And if things do end up going pear-shaped for Manziel, at least he can rest easy safe in the knowledge that a lucrative future in the trick shot game lies ahead.

Manziel "ran" a great route, although it has to be said the defensive cover was pretty poor as he was left the freedom of the ocean to zone in on the incoming pass and connect with an exceptional one-handed catch.

It is unlikely jet-ski receiving ability is the first thing on an NFL scout's checklist, but Manziel definitely earns some respect for pulling off the move.
