    Tebow didn't light up anything but the bench as a freshman.

    Irrelevant. Manziel is not a starting NFL prospect no matter how well he does against college defenses. It doesn't translate.

I just don't think he'll be great because he never has been.

    More specific please. Sources ?

    RGIII and Russell Wilson were not in Scouts Inc. top 100 until early November of last year.

    It was said Drew Brees' game would not translate to the NFL either. How did that work out?

    People that know football, both college and pro, know that Manziel isn't a great prospect.

    Ryan Tannehill, Johnny reeks as just a great college quarterback, but who knows it's too early to make this comparison. Right now Ryan is a way better NFL prospect, but who knows Johnny could develop into more of a prostyle player.

    You do realize they went to the same school?!? Or are you trying to say that the SEC is better than the Pros? Either way... Epic fail

    I was just going to post the same thing.
