Johnny Football is headed to the NFL.
In a move that should surprise no one, Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel has decided to declare for the NFL Draft.
Manziel leaves College Station after just two years with the Aggies. He claimed the Heisman Trophy in 2012 by throwing for 3,706 yards and 26 touchdowns, while rushing for 1,410 yards and 21 scores.
Manziel improved as a passer in 2013, throwing for 4,114 yards and 37 scores. And as expected, his rushing numbers regressed slightly, adding only 759 yards on the ground.
Texas A&M will have a tough time replacing Manziel, but sophomore Kenny Hill and incoming freshman Kyle Allen are two potential stars in College Station.
Manziel is expected to be a first-round draft pick this April.
