Johnny Manziel got to work out in front of 32 NFL teams at Texas A&M‘s Pro Day. Here are five NFL teams that would be a good fit for the former Aggie.

Johnny Manziel took the field at Texas A&M football’s Pro Day this week to throw to Aggie players looking to enter the 2018 NFL Draft.

While he was mostly there for that, it was also an opportunity to throw in front of all 32 NFL teams who were there scouting electric wide receiver Christian Kirk. Kirk is expected to be a first or second round pick, so NFL teams were there doing their homework.

Those in attendance reportedly were impressed with Johnny Football. According to’s Andy Fenelon, multiple NFL scouts gave rave reviews of Manziel’s workout.

"“I thought he looked better throwing the ball today than he did four years ago,” said a veteran NFC scout who was at Manziel’s pro day in 2014 and his Tuesday workout. “Better velocity, pretty good accuracy.” “The ball came out quickly,” noted another scout who was also there four years ago and again on Tuesday. “And he looked relaxed.”"

The Pro Day brought former Aggie stars Mike Evans and Myles Garrett — along with television and news crews — out to see the spectacle that Johnny Football always seems to create.

But at the end of the day, it was a small step towards a much bigger goal for the 2012 Heisman Trophy winner. He wants to get invited to an NFL training camp this year.

That got me thinking. Which NFL teams would be the best fit for him? Let’s take a look.
