BRYAN, Texas -- Former Texas A&M and NFL quarterback Stephen McGee came by KBTX to share his thoughts on Johnny Manziel's decision to turn pro.
McGee feels Manziel has done more than enough at the college level to prove he's ready for the NFL, now he needs to have a good job interview. "I think when you have that much solid film out there I think it's going to be a matter of getting these teams to believe he can be the face of their franchise," McGee said. "Not so much the stuff he does on the field, but convincing him that he's the kind of person they want to represent their brand. He brings a lot to the table."
McGee thinks Manziel has a lot of work ahead of him before the draft in May. "He has to come ready to go in shape for the combine first of all. He is going to have to probably run a 40-yard dash. He is going to want to run well especially because he is going to considered more of the athlete type quarterback that can use his legs. I think that will be the way he can impress at the combine and in his interviews and slowly get his arm into shape and prepare to have a great pro day. That is going to be a huge day for him as far as his on the field body of work to impress these teams in person."
The NFL Draft begins May 8 in New York.
