Johnny Manziel may have measured in at only 5-foot-11 3/4 at the NFL scouting combine, but he also registered an impressive 31.5 inch vertical jump – fifth best among quarterbacks.
Manziel does not need to use that vertical too often on the football field, but apparently he puts it to good use on the basketball court.
He posted a video to his Instagram page Monday that showcases his awesome leaping ability. He throws down several impressive dunks including a 360 and a one-handed throwdown off the backboard, though some fans who commented on the video wondered if the rim was lowered to 9.5 feet instead the usual 10 feet.
Manziel is obviously a special athlete, but with the NFL draft less than two months away, he may want to cool it with the dunks. That’d be an awful way to hurt a knee.
