E.J. Manuel is shocker here. While it’s expected quarterbacks usually go higher than expected, many didn’t note the Florida St. product as a top-20 pick — to those analysts that did: well done indeed.
Manuel is athletic, has above-average arm strength, and has accuracy to make every throw. Notable analysts that claimed Manuel was the best of the quarterback group include NFL Films’ Greg Cosell, and with some seasoning should make a dangerous quarterback for defenses both in planning and in-game.
