COLLEGE STATION - Johnny Manziel might want to consider also entering the NBA Draft in June, even though he hasn't played competitive basketball since the eighth grade.

Manziel, who is projected by some analysts to be the Number 1 pick in the NFL Draft in May, posted a video on his Instagram account that shows him dunking at the Cox-McFerrin Center on the Texas A&M Campus.

In the video, the former TEXAS A&M quarterback and 2013 Heisman Trophy winner performs four dunks. Answer our poll question and tell us which you think was best.
