If Roger Staubach were on the clock with the No. 1 pick in the NFL draft, there’s no doubt in his mind that he’d take quarterback Johnny Manziel over defensive end Jadeveon Clowney.
The Pro Football Hall of Famer, who was taken as a 10th round future pick in the 1964 draft by the Dallas Cowboys, thinks Manziel will have the same impact as a certain Super Bowl-winning quarterback.
“I think Manziel is a Russell Wilson-type player,” Staubach said Wednesday on the NFL Network. “He doesn’t have the height, (but) he has a strong arm and he throws with accuracy.
“… I just think there’s something about this kid – the quickness. Today in the league, the quarterbacks can fly; we weren’t allowed to do that. I think Manziel is going to be a valuable player in the NFL.”
The Houston Texans have the No. 1 pick in the NFL draft, which will be held May 8-10.
