COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) - Johnny Manziel put on a show at his NFL pro day for an audience that included former President George H.W. Bush.

The 2012 Heisman Trophy winner threw for 75 officials from 30 teams on the Texas A&M campus on Thursday.

He also had some special guests, as the former President and wife Barbara rolled into the facility on golf carts about 10 minutes into the workout.

Manziel threw about 65 passes to six receivers, including A&M teammate Mike Evans, who like Manziel is expected to a first round pick in May's draft. Manziel caused a stir by choosing to wear a helmet and shoulder pads during the workout.

Manziel didn't understand why it was a big deal, saying: "You play the game on shoulder pads on Sundays. Why not come out and do it? ... For me it was a no-brainer."
