Wilson on the other hand is a great athlete but I think he's more intellect and classic QB skill then athlete. Even if he lost his legs I still think he'd find a way to be successful.
Also the hype factor, and the leadership style for Manziel is much more Griffin then Wilson, imo. Although I can see some of both Wilson and Griffin in his game.
Agreed on hype factor, but disagree on athleticism. Manziel would probably be sacked a lot more and have fewer rushing yards if he was an average runner, but he is a tremendous decision maker and improvisor that really helps make up for some of his problems (not the greatest arm). Mobility obviously helps him, but it hardly defines him like it does for RG3 who is so special athletically. I guarantee you that Manziel will not outperform Wilson at his future NFL combine. Wilson is a more natural athlete with a much better arm. So if he's less than Wilson, I can't agree with any comparisons to RG3 athletically, since RG3 is significantly more athletic than Wilson is.
Disagree 110% on the leadership comment. Manziel is seriously the best leader I have ever seen. Greater than Tebow. Better even than Wilson. WAAAAAAY better than RG3, who is the quiet lead by example type.
I think that's part of what makes Manziel so beloved- it's his "heroic" traits. A guy like him by all rights should not be this good. He's six foot nothing and looks like he'd be lying if he said he was 200 pounds. He has an average at best arm and really his only good tool is his speed, which is probably no better than Mariota's, maybe less. What he's done at A&M is really just out of pure determination and smarts. The speed helps, but it goes way beyond that.
