Johnny Manziel is preparing for the NFL at present.

A sure fire first round pick, many have the player down to go first overall in May's NFL Draft.

But whilst the media scrutinises his ability and potential, questions remain about who will be picked to fill the void left by Manziel at Texas A&M.

During his time as an Aggie, Manziel won the Heisman Trophy and finished with 7,820 career yards and 63 TD's produced during his three years at College Station.

As he moves on, A&M are left with three options to step up next season.

Matt Joeckel, a senior who has been Manziel's backup. Sophomore Kenny Hill, and true freshman Kyle Allen who has been hyped for big things.

But offensive coordinator Jake Spavital is adamant that all three will have their chance to shine:

"Everybody's going to get a fair shot.

"I think competition brings out the best in everybody. I can tell you that the (quarterback meeting) room is not very comfortable right now, but that's what I want," Spavital told

It had been thought that Joeckel held the advantage having filled in for Manziel early last season and performed mop-up duty late on in games.

While Allen himself has his own fan club amongst Aggies enthusiasts, with some experts feeling he should be thrown in from the off.

But at present it seems the vacant QB jersey is still up for grabs:

"They all want the starting job. Let's see who wants it the most," said Spavital.

What do you think? Who should get the spot?
