Kliff Kingsbury joined Clay Travis on Outkick the Podcast in December and hit on many topics, including Texas A&M QB Johnny Manziel.

Kingsbury, Manziel’s former OC, had some high praise for Johnny’s NFL outlook.

"€œI’€™d just say I’€™ve never seen anything like him on the field, and I just think he’s just now starting to figure it out as far as preparation, things of that nature in his game, and I would take him with a first pick if I had it,"€ Kingsbury said.

"I think he’s that talented of a player. Nobody’s ever done what he’s done in that league, being the SEC with that type of talent when he runs around and he’s just the best player out there each and every week. And so, I would take him with a first pick and I think he’€™s going to grow up and he’€™s going to mature, and he’€™s a smart kid, and it’d be fun to watch."
