New Johnny Manziel dunk video sees player slam critics

Johnny Manziel yesterday sent the internet crazy with a simple Instagram video of him dunking at Texas A&M's basketball practice court.

But after his critics suggested there might be foul play, specifically claiming the basket was lower than the regulation 10 feet, the 5' 11" Manziel is back today with another video to shut his critics up.

And the latest video sees a slow motion Manziel take off with a two-footed dunk before slamming the ball down one-handed, with the NFL draft prospect clearly happy with his efforts:

"Shout out to @mikeevans13_ for the slow motion. Let me guess..y'all think this rim isn't 10ft either," he wrote alongside the Instagram post.

Fighting talk indeed from the man many people think will be the first overall pick come the NFL Draft this May.

And for someone who has taken criticism recently for his small stature, it is fairly impressive.

But Manziel is scheduled to return to his first love, football, in the coming days as he looks to impress NFL scouts at the Texas A&M pro day on Thursday - hence his presence back in College Station this week.

And with 'Johnny Football' yet to have thrown this offseason maybe he should spend a little more time out on the gridiron and leave the dunking to the pros?
