Could Johnny Manziel fall to the fourth round?

ESPN analyst Ron Jaworski says he wouldn't touch Johnny Manziel in the first three rounds of the NFL draft.

Manziel, the Heisman winning quarterback from Texas A&M University, is expected to go high in the first round of the NFL draft in May.

Jaworski was asked about the Eagles' draft plans on 97.5 The Fanatic in Philadelphia - Manziel reportedly met with Eagles staff earlier this week.

But Jaworski says he doesn't think that would be a good move for the organisation - because he doesn't rate Manziel as a quarterback.

"I'm a big believer in Nick Foles, but who knows," Jaworski said. "Manziel may fall. I'm not crazy about him, to be honest with you.

"I've only looked at five games. I wouldn't take him in the first three rounds. That's my opinion.

"It's incomplete right now. But he has not done a whole lot to me."

Many mock drafts have Manziel going to the Cleveland Browns with the fourth selection of the NFL draft, but Jaworski clearly doesn't see Manziel the same way other talent evaluators do.

He's got history when it comes to outlandish opinions on certain NFL quarterbacks, so it is no surprise to hear Jaworski - a fan of traditional quarterback play - question Manziel's ability to flourish at the highest level.

Manziel is a divisive prospect. He is undersized for the position, but possesses incredible playmaking ability and decent arm strength.
