Yea, its a bummer. He would have been a great backup for Mariota.
But in all seriousness I think they both ended up in the right spots. I think Manziel would have driven Chip Kelly crazy with his improvisition. Mariota is more likely to stick to the script and execute the play while Manziel will just make up a play on his own.
Both are excellent QB's. I still think Mariota will be better at the next level, although its pointless to talk about since neither of us will change the other's mind. It will be interesting to see how Manziel does next year without his two all american tackles.
Interestingly, Texas A&M has turned into one of the biggest recruiting rivals for the Ducks. They seem to go after a lot of the same players. They stole Manziel from us, then we stole Bralon Addison from them the following year who's going to be a pretty good playmaker for the Ducks next year.
