NFL Draft Analyst: “Johnny Football Is Like A Good Deodorant”

manziel-no-sweat-deodorantHeisman-winning Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel has been described in a lot of ways.  Thrilling.  Exciting.  Doug Flutie-esque.  A guy who plays “backyard football.”  You name it, it’s probably been said.

Especially now.

During the NFL combine, former Manziel receiver Ryan Swope lined up to do his timed run.  NFL Network’s Rich Eisen mentioned that he was once a target for Johnny Football.  Draft analyst Mike Mayock responded by praising Swope’s performance in A&M’s win over Alabama… and by saying this:

 

“I’ll tell ya another thing — Johnny Football is like good deodorant ’cause he makes stinky things smell good.”

 

Mayock explained that when Manziel’s line failed to protect him, he could run around and turn it into a positive.  Good thing he explained it.  Because the timing might have suggested Swope was one of the stinky things Manziel made smell good.

Swope had two catches in the Bama game that should go down in A&M lore. I don't recall A&M being a school that historically produces great receivers, but that guy can catch a ball under pressure, and since Aggies are always looking for something to put down in school lore, those fit the bill IMHO.

Maybe Mayock doesn't follow college football, but that "stinky" o-line had two potential first round draft picks on it - and possibly the #1 overall pick.  I don't mean to take away from what Manziel did - he was phenomenal, but that A&M o-line was far from "stinky."  Swope and Michael are NFL caliber players as well... this was/is a very talented A&M team.  It's going to be very tough for my MSU Dawgs to go into college station and come out with a win next fall.

 Exactly what I was thinking when I read this article.  Guess he doesn't realize Joeckel is from A&M and that he just might be the overall #1 pick.  And, Matthews is gonna be a high 1st round pick next year.  I think he just wanted to make a cute little statement.

If you listen to the comment, Mayock wasn't insulting A&M's line.  He was saying that Manziel was able to make bad plays smell better when protection did break down.  And as good as A&M's line was there were blown blocking assignments on occasion.  No line is perfect.

 

I tried to make that clear by writing "when Manziel's line failed to protect him."

 

Thanks for reading,

John
