Drew Brees calls Johnny Manziel "a heckuva player," believes he'll be a starting QB in NFL.

Johnny Manziel doing Johnny Manziel things.

Texas A&M starting quarterback has a big name in his corner when it comes to supporting his chances to be an NFL starting QB. New Orleans Saints starting QB Drew Brees said the reigning Heisman Trophy winner is " is a heckuva player" during an interview with FOX

“He’s got all the playmaking ability to be a great player. [There are] guys like [Manziel] in this league. Russell Wilson and his ability to run the football and extend plays outside the pocket and throw the ball down the field. Intermediate [routes], I mean he can do it all.”

Brees and Manziel share the characteristic of being considered "undersized" as quarterbacks. That didn't stop Brees from leading the Saints to a Super Bowl XLIV victory (against a Peyton Manning-led Indianapolis Colts, no less). It would be hard to bet against Manziel chances in the NFL given what he's accomplished on the field in college football.
