President H.W. Bush to watch Johnny Manziel's A&M pro day

College pro days are usually reserved for NFL scouts and reporters.

But not every college has the media-juggernaut that is Johnny Manziel taking part in their pro day.

And so when drills begin at Texas A&M tomorrow the usual crowd will be joined in College Station by former President, George H.W. Bush, as they cast their eye over the potential no.1 draft pick.

Talk about pressure!

The former President of the United States is a known college football fan and is likely to be as keen as everyone else to see just what Manziel can do in front of the array of scouts who will be present.

The hyped quarterback has been keeping everyone waiting in recent weeks after turning down the chance to throw at the NFL Combine, and Thursday's drills will act as a significant measure for teams seeking to finalize their draft board.

Manziel has the opportunity to capitalise on a poor pro day performance from QB rival Teddy Bridgewater and could put himself in a prime position to be taken first in Radio City come May if he can produce the goods.
