Mike Mayock was on hand to witness Florida State’s pro day, where quarterback EJ Manuel — a player rated as the No. 2 QB in the draft by Mayock — was one of the key prospects working out.
After the pro day, Mayock went on NFL Network’s “Path to the Draft” and declared Manuel, “a better prospect than Christian Ponder was two years ago, with more upside.”
Ponder, who also went to Florida State, was the 12th overall selection in the 2011 NFL Draft.
After the workout, Manuel was interviewed by Mayock, who grilled the Seminole about how he’ll handle the pressure in the NFL.
