Johnny Manziel was the first quarterback to win the Heisman Trophy as a freshman, and this season he will become one of the most scrutinized players on the field. 

One of the major issues with the quality of Manziel is his lack of passing accuracy, and questions remain about whether or not he is up to an NFL standard ahead of the Draft

Most analysts insist that Manziel will be a great leader by example for whoever drafts him, and people like NFL Network's Mike Mayock believes he has the traits that could make him a great one day.   

"Manziel looks like combination of Doug Flutie and Fran Tarkenton. I believe in Manziel. Team will have to live with negative plays, though." 

Although there are certainly some great aspects to Manziel's play, he can be troubled by pocket pressure, as Mayock points out. 

"He doesn't like being confined. The more he was in the pocket, the more frustrated he got."
