During a post combine interview, Elway gave an interesting description of Manziel saying, “I think he’s a great little player.”
Oops! After the media got their laugh, Elway backtracked his statement.
“I don’t say ‘little,’ I shouldn’t say that,” Elway said.
Once Elway got that cleared up, he talked about Texas A&M, the Broncos and spoke highly of Manziel’s skills.
“He’s a guy that he’s fun to watch on film,” Elway said. “He’s a great competitor, and I think that’s what his strength is, the fact he’s a great, great competitor. At that position, you have to have that. That’s what makes him tick. Obviously he has tremendous talent, he can move around and still make all the throws. But I think his No. 1 quality is his competitive nature.”
Elway also gave props to another shorty, Russell Wilson.
“He’s got everything except he’s not 6-3, but he’s got everything else,” Elway said.
