Johnny Manziel

Johnny Manziel might be the first pick in next month's NFL draft, or he might be out of a job and selling corn dogs at high school games, depending on the daily mood shifts of draft analysts. One thing we can all agree on, though: he's enjoying life, whether or not it benefits his draft prospects. Behold his jet-ski pass reception skills:

Check how he speeds up, circles under the pass, and makes a one-handed grab. Impressive. Yes, when the NFL allows receivers to use jet-skis, Manziel clearly will be able to shift easily into a new role.

NFL general managers were no doubt absolutely delighted by Manziel's antics. That's exactly the kind of freethinking, devil-may-care, independent spirits they want on their squads. Good on ya, Johnny.
