Johnny Manziel shows off insane dunking skills

A big talking point ahead of the 2014 NFL Draft is Johnny Manziel. The precocious young quarterback is an incredibly polarizing figure among all analysts and mock draft makers.

One of the minus points that gets put beside his name time after time in discussion is his lack of height under center. 

Well that may not be as much of a problem as some seem to think.

To go along with the fact that both Russell Wilson and Drew Brees are top quarterbacks in the league despite their diminutive stature, Manziel is athletic and he proved it on his Instagram account.

Manziel took some time off from his intense pro day and draft preparations with a trip to the basketball court, Texas A&M's practice gyms to be precise.

And the 5"11 quarterback showed that size doesn't matter as he produces a crazy highlight reel of spectacular slam dunks.

As you can see in the above video, Manziel isn't just happy with your standard two handed jam.

The 21-year old breaks out a couple LeBron James style off the wall tomahawks, a big air one handed throw down off the backboard to himself and then the piece de resistance, the 360 degree spin.

It's good to see that he has improved from this woeful missed layup that made it on to Sports Centers Not Top 10.

Maybe we should start calling him 'Johnny Basketball.'
