Great athlete playing quarterback, who also has an above average arm and can zip the short and intermediate routes. At times Manziel tries to do too much and will try to make something out of nothing, this causes turnovers at times. Does not have a great feel for the rush but when he sees it he can get out of it with ease. Deadly running the ball, he has above average speed and moves.
