Texas A&M’s Heisman Trophy winning quarterback Johnny Manziel is looking to improve his game. He’s scheduled to spend time working out with noted quarterback guru George Whitfield. Whitfield has helped quarterbacks like Cam Newton, Russell Wilson, Colin Kaepernick, and RG3. All of whom are running quarterbacks like Manziel.
“Johnny really wants to hone in on being able to fully operate in the pocket,” Whitfield said. “He wants to run a lot less and make more throws and still be (as effective).”
Manziel didn’t exactly struggle from within the pocket, but he was quick to run out of it if it started to collapse.
Adding a pocket passing game to Manziel’s arsenal will inevitably help him on his way to back-to-back Heisman Trophies.
It will be easy for Manziel to work with Whitfield considering he’s only taking online classes this semester. Manziel told Brent Zwerneman of the San Antonio Express-News that he only had to be on campus once a month and that all of his classes were online because he was struggling with too much attention.
