Manziel runs No. 2 time by a QB at NFL Combine
FEB 23, 2014 10:59a ET
Johnny Manziel may have come up short in the height department, but he delivered in the 40-yard dash Sunday during testing at the NFL Combine in Indianapolis.
The Texas A&M quarterback, who triggered mild concern Friday among draft observers when he was measured at a fraction under 6-feet tall, ran his two heats in the dash in 4.63 and 4.56 seconds.
It puts him on firm footing in comparisons with other top quarterback draft prospects.
Connor Shaw of South Carolina was the fastest of all the QBs with marks of 4.58 amd 4.55 seconds.
And rather than straight-line running, the ability to change direction without sacrificing speed was Manziel's trademark in two seasons at A&M.
