Johnny "Money" Manziel was easily one of the most entertaining college football players of his generation, with athleticism that made SEC defenders constantly look like kids in their backyards. As the first ever Freshman to win the Heisman trophy, it didn't take long for hype to build Manziel up as the next great NFL quarterback, even amidst constant off-field controversy during his time at Texas A&M. While many doubted his staying power in the league after being selected by the Cleveland Browns in the first round, few people saw the full-blown collapse of Manziel's career coming just two years after he entered the NFL. Watch this video to take a look at the skills and abilities that made him a generational talent at the college level, and why many of those same skills dug his own grave once he entered the pros.
