Johnny Manziel leads Texas A&M Pro Day Part 2; 3 other schools also holding workouts

Peter G. Aiken-USA TODAY Sports

Today is a huge day - and it's not limited to just the football world - because Texas A&M is holding their Pro Day (or, part 2 of their Pro Day). That means, Johnny Manziel will finally be throwing for scouts. But, TAMU is not the only school holding their workout today.

Earlier this month, Texas A&M held their Pro Day workouts for NFL scouts - with one notable exception. Quarterback Johnny Manziel did not participate. Instead, he is holding his own, separate, Pro Day today. It's the big news of the day.

And, it's not just football people who are interested in Manziel's workout. Former President George H.W. Bush is in attendance, as is Texas Governor Rick Perry. Everyone wants to see how the biggest name in this year's NFL Draft performs when he actually throws the ball. At the Combine, Manziel measured shorter than he would have liked, coming in at 5'11" instead of the six-feet he had anticipated, but he did run a fast 4.68 40-yard dash. Now, can he back it up with a good showing at his Pro Day.

Of note, Manziel has said he will conduct his throwing in helmet and pads, where as most Pro Day, and the NFL Combine, happen in shorts and t-shirts. The Pro Day will also give scouts another look at wide reveiver Mike Evans, who is expected to serve as the primary receiver for Manziel today.

The Pro Day, which starts at 11:30am ET, will be televised on NFL Network and online at ESPN 3.

Not to be forgotten, Ball State, Coastal Carolina, and Louisiana Tech are also holding Pro Days today. Ball State will give wide receiver Willie Snead will be looking to answer some questions about his route running and his ability to get separation. Coastal Carolina's Lorenzo Taliaferro is a power running back who wants to prove he is worth a late round investment from a club and LA Tech defensive tackle Justin Ellis should be able to keep his draft stock rising after good East-West Shrine Game and Senior Bowl performances.
