I don't know how many of you read Deadspin, but they have some pretty good articles including:
Supposedly the internal scouting report by the Patriots for Manziel. And unlike most "smoke-screens" published pre-draft, the fact that this came out later suggests it might be genuine.
"sources say can't yell/scream at him or he shuts down; has walked away from Kingsbury in the past. Has an avg. work ehtic, came to 4 of 32 summer '13 workouts, and quit going to in-season workouts late in '12. Doesn't study the game, said to know about 60% of the offense in '12, never watches film; one source said only time he watched film during '12 was before ALUN."
"Will never take football seriously enough for our coaching staff, he'll hate meetings, will have to drag him to work out, etc. The definition of the word maintenance."
Even though Bridgewater wasn't my favorite quarterback in this draft (really liked Fales), I thought at the time we dodged a bullet when Cleveland ostensibly beat us to 22 and picked Manziel. Also if your most favorable comparison is Russel Wilson, a guy who basically lives in the film room and might be one of the top five "character" guys in the league, then maybe the fact that you don't even bother watching pregame film isn't the most auspicious sign.
