Cowboys love Manziel but he needs new PR

NFL Draft prospect Johnny Manziel may be rubbing certain teams up the wrong way, but it doesn't seem like the Dallas Cowboys are one of those. 

The machine that is the 'Johnny Football' propaganda has taken force over the weekend, with the NFL Combine in town and taking centre stage. 

However, Manziel may need to get some more PR help as he continues to make statements that sound arrogant rather than hungry, but the Cowboys are a team that hasn't been put off by all the overhype.

Cowboys VP Stephen Jones recently said, "I think the guy is an amazing competitor,” Jones said. “He’s one of those guys over the years that when you turn on the TV and you saw A&M’s playing, you wanted to sit down and watch this guy.

"The guy’s got to be one of the greatest college football players I’ve ever watched, in terms of how he can change a football game."

However, the scenes of Manziel holding a Dallas uniform up at the NFL Draft day is slightly insane, with fellow Texas team Houston the likely destination for Manziel. 

That was until his performance over the last few days. 

Confidence is one thing but arrogance is another, and telling Houston that not picking him will be the biggest mistake they ever make is a borderline arrogant remark. 

Tom E. Curran of explains, "If Manziel really wants to be the No. 1 overall pick, you know what he needs? Someone who’ll tell him that the more you dare/challenge/finger-wag at a guy like O’Brien — which in my view is what Manziel’s sales pitch has done — the more likely O’Brien will ask where the (bleep) you get off challenging him when you haven’t peed a drop in the NFL.”

Seems Johnny might have some thinking to do.
