tucker, his numbers weren't as lofty as last but they're very good. Sure his game will have to adjust to the Pro level, but keep in mind he is for real and in today's game, quarterbacks wear dresses. He doesn't have to worry about the abuse that Phil Simms had to worry about. He will do well in this league.
How many compare to these?

Personally, I think John Manziel can be a good QB in the league. I am not sure he will be a HOF player though because In see him only playing like 5 years. He is going to get banged up hard. He needs to change his style of play, and you saw how that affected RGMe this season.
"Everyone has a plan until they get punched in the mouth."
I think it is the total opposite, I think if you take Manziel over Bridgewater because your buying into the COLLEGE HYPE you will end up making a HUGE MISTAKE
Not saying Manziel is not going to be good in the NFL I just like Bridgewater and Blake Bortles potential better as far as translating to the NFL and it has nothing to do with "SIZE"
Texans should take Clowney! Clowney and Watt together would be AMAZING for the Texans!
Your right about the 6'1 generous height given....he looks more like 5'11 to me. He has pics of himself standing next to Chris Paul who's 6'0 and Paul is clearly taller by a good inch or so. If Manziel was made into a pocket passer, the first thing I think he'll have to change is his trajectory on the ball. Smaller QB's like Brees or Wilson throw over the top high arching throws...Manziel is lot more even and line drive. NFL lineman will be all over those.
I think they will go Clowney. Bill O'Brein already stated he wants a QB that is a hard worker and studies the game. First guy in Last guy out type of guy ...that rules out Manziel unless his PR team turns around his image in the next 3 months. Clowney and Watt will be a sick duo. A sure thing on a rookie pay scale is a no brainer.
Living in Houston I have a strong feeling they might go with a veteran QB like McCown or someone else for a year and wait for some of the better prospects next year. Bortles is a candidate but only if they trade down.
They need to rebuild the right side of their line before they can get a franchise signal caller and get their running game back on track. They also have major secondary issues also and need to address that or their rookie QB will be coming back from behind way too much.
