It was senior night in College Station on Saturday as the Texas A&M Aggies outlasted the Mississippi State Bulldogs 51-41. Johnny Manziel had an up and down game going 30 of 39 for 446 yards with 5 TDs but he also threw three interceptions.
At the end of the game, it felt like this was the farewell to College Station for Manziel. Manziel is a red-shirt sophomore and with three years of college in the books, he is eligible for the NFL draft. This off-season, Manziel tweeted about how he "can't wait to leave college station…whenever it may be".
After winning the Heisman trophy as a red-shirt freshman, there isn't a lot that Manziel has left to prove or accomplish on a personal level. Is he the type of player that will come back because of a shot at an SEC or National Championship?
He's definitely not a typical NFL prospect, but with mobile QBs becoming more and more enticing to NFL teams, it only takes one team to fall in love with him. I believe we've seen the last of Johnny Football in College Station.
That doesn't mean we've seen the last of Johnny in college as he still has huge games coming up against LSU and Missouri. After those games, and possibly a BCS game if A&M can win both, we can start to discuss if he's worthy of a first round draft pick in the 2014 NFL Draft.
