Pros: Manuel has ideal size to play in the NFL. He also has a strong arm with the ability to make just about every throw. Manuel also is fantastic in the play action game. MAnuel works well from both under center and from the shotgun. Very athletic for his size and although he does not have elite speed, does a good job picking up big chunks of yards. Manuel also might be the toughest quarterback to come out of college in a long time, having played through multiple injuries including a broken leg in the 2013 Champs Sports Bowl.

Cons: Manuel's biggest issues lie in his decision making ability. He tends to lock in on receviers and force passes. He also struggles to consistently display good accuracy. Manuel has a tendency to tuck and run too often when under pressure.
