For a guy that seems to party a lot, Johnny Manziel sure does a lot of work on his game too. The Boston Herald is reporting that Manziel reached out to Tom Brady for help navigating the Combine:
Whitfield said the two enjoyed a nice text exchange. Brady did offer up some advice for Manziel, who is one of the major stories here at the NFL’s scouting combine. Manziel, more popularly known as Johnny Football, is expected to go in the top five of the draft, perhaps No. 1 overall to the Houston Texans if new head coach Bill O’Brien takes to Manziel’s scrambling and improvisational ways at quarterback.
Whitfield said Brady encouraged Manziel to “ignore the noise” which is a popular phrase in Foxboro with Patriot players blocking out what’s being said and written about them both good and bad. Brady also told Manziel to enjoy the moment and experience the ride of being drafted and entering the next phase of his career.
Brady didn’t quite light the world on fire at his combine but ended up surviving that. Johnny seems pretty eager to learn from other great QBs and Tommy Uggs is a great place to go to for advice.
