There are a lot of dumb GMs but I don't think any of them would be dumb enough to take a 6'0" 195 lb QB with only 1 year of starting experience #1 overall. That would mean he'd have to start immediately for a bad team and that would not end well at all.
exponentially safer pick than Jamarcus Russell was.
Manziel was also about 8x better than anyone else who played college football this year and probably for the next 2-3 years.
Heck I was rooting like crazy for OU last night, Manziel is just ridiculous good and it ain't like Texas A&M has a great team around him, its okay but nothing special. He impresses me more with his arm than RGIII did in college and we know he's every bit as dangerous as a runner. I would hate to be sitting at #1 with a crummy draft class like 2013 is, esp if your team desperately needed a QB, and NOT take Manziel but rather someone like Geno Smith or Landry Jones.
That'd be like taking Sam Bowie over Michael Jordan, or Leaf over Peyton Manning. He may not have good size or experience, but you can't pass on elite talent like that, esp at the QB position.
