Manziel won't throw at Combine

LAS VEGAS, NV (The Spread) - One of the more polarizing prospects in this year's NFL draft announced that he will not throw at the scouting combine.

Texas A&M quarterback and current NFL draft prospect Johnny Manizel will not throw at this year's scouting combine according to his agent Erik Burkhardt. He'll instead wait to throw at his March 27th Pro Day and his private workouts.

"Johnny manziel will do all of his throwing at his March 27th Pro Day & private workouts. Teams will have all the time & access they want," said Burkhardt via Twitter.

Along with Louisville's Teddy Bridgewater and Central Florida's Blake Bortles, Manziel is one of the top quarterback prospects in this year's draft. He's expected to be a top 5 selection and seeing as how he'll have an opportunity to throw with receivers that he's familiar with at A&M, it makes sense that he would wait until his Pro Day to perform for scouts.

In a recent interview with reporters from the Houston Chronicle, Manziel said that the Texans passing on him would be the worst decision they've ever made. Houston of course, holds the No. 1 overall pick in May's draft. 

"It would be the worst decision they've ever made," Manziel said, smiling. "I'd be in the same division playing against them twice a year. Sorry, but you just turned that chip on my shoulder from a Frito into a Dorito."

Despite finishing with the worst record in the NFL last season, the Texans are 33/1 to win the 2015 Super Bowl according to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv. Considering the Raiders, Bills and Jaguars are 100/1 Super Bowl long shots despite finishing with slightly better records indicates that oddsmakers believe that Houston has the talent to rebound in 2014.

"They're a team I've watched every year since I was a kid," Manziel said. "I want to be the No. 1 pick. It's something I've dreamed about. With the pieces they already have in place, I could fit in."
