Video: Johnny Manziel’s performance in second Spring League game

V

Quarterback Johnny Manziel finished up his two-game stint in The Spring League on Thursday evening, his South team falling 34-17 to the West squad. Manziel’s numbers: 10 of 16 passing for 188 yards as well as 27 yards rushing and two touchdowns on the ground.

Here’s most of the passing plays involving Manziel, though we missed one or two due to the wonkiness of The Spring League live stream (at least it functioned, unlike the start of Manziel’s first game.)

It’s pretty tough to get a read on just how well Manziel played (or didn’t) given the level of competition (guys who paid money to play in hopes of getting a pro shot elsewhere) and the lack of preparation time. But at the very least, you can see some of the athleticism that won him a Heisman trophy and had some CFL people talking about his upside. It’s not hard to see him flourishing on the bigger field.
