Johnny Manziel certainly put on a show at his Texas A&M pro day yesterday and it got a lot of people raving.
One individual was not as enthused as what he saw however.
Newly crowned Minnesota Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer spoke to the Houston Chronicle about what he saw from Manziel and co at College Station.
“The huddles and the different things and the music. The sideshow stuff,” Zimmer said. “It was a sideshow.”
Zimmer went on to call the whole debacle "choreographed" and that they placed too much emphasis on style instead of substance.
In an effort to be different Manziel wore full shoulder pads and a helmet to go along with a pair of camouflage shorts and pure white shocks to raw attention to his footwork.
“This one was a little different in how it was choreographed. People like that or they don’t like that, I don’t know," he added.
A couple of Zimmer's fellow NFL head coaches disagreed with him. Lovie Smith of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Jacksonville's Gus Bradley praised what they saw, noting the atmosphere and how Johnny Football overcame all the eyes looking at him.
Manziel will be looking to go in the top 10 come draft time in Radio City, New York and has a definite chance of being the first quarterback off the board with his showing yesterday, especially given Teddy Bridgewater's lacklustre showing and considerable doubts about Blake Bortles and whether he could start right away.
