Drake name drops Johnny Manziel in the new Draft Day It’s no secret that Drake and soon-to-be NFL quarterback, Johnny Manziel are good friends. Last night, Drizzy shook up rap and sports blogs alike with ‘Draft Day,’ a new song where he shouts out OVO Johnny (and NBA prospect Andrew Wiggins) on the hook. If only Manziel had this for his Pro Day (he worked out in front of NFL scouts with rap music blasting from the speakers).

As the 21-year-old baller prepares to impact the NFL this year, VIBE offers a primer on football's next big star. —Terrence Watson Johnny Manziel's legend began at the Cotton Bowl.That Boy Growing Up Quick

And he had to in order to win in big-time college football. There’s no tougher conference when it comes to college pigskin than the SEC, which his college team Texas A&M joined before he became the starting quarterback. His record over the Aggies initial SEC seasons? 20-6. Throw in championship wins in both the Cotton Bowl and the Chick-fil-A Bowl and it’s easy to see why NFL teams like the Minnesota Vikings, New England Patriots and Texas Titans all seem to be viable destinations for Aubrey’s BFF.

Johnny Manziel’s got a host of hardware to prove he’s the man right now. Dating back to his senior year of high school where he won the National High School Coaches Association Senior Athlete of the Year and was named a Parade All-American. To his historic tenure at Texas A&M where he was named SEC Male Athlete of the Year, AP Player of the Year, became the youngest player ever to win a Heisman and even won an ESPY for Male College Athlete of the Year. Johnny Manziel took on Alabama and won. Legend.He's Not Easily Intimidated

Much like the OVO leader, Manziel’s famously taken shots at the throne. Johnny Football’s legend was cemented when he took out then number one ranked Alabama as a freshman. In rap terms, it was like when Kendrick dropped control but imagine if he also shitted on Jigga and Kanye and still won. Yeah, it was that unreal. Most college football experts agree that was the game where he “won” his Heisman. Manziel and the Aggies lost this season in the rematch by one touchdown, but the fact that it was a shootout meant a win for him even in defeat. Most college athletes can't afford to chill court side at NBA games like OVO JohnyJohnny's Been Rich

The NCAA was all over Manziel’s ass because despite being a college student, he was living that jet-set life. In other words, he was far from the typical broke college student. Manziel’s family is caking because his great-grandfather father, Bobby Joe borrowed money from his friend, boxing legend Jack Dempsey, to invest in oil drilling in the 1930’s. No one knows for sure how much the family is worth now, but according to a story written on the family on MySanAntonio.com, when Bobby Joe’s wife Dorothy, Johnny’s great-grandma, passed away in 2005, she was worth nearly $4 million.

In said article, Texas A&M President Bowin Loftin president said of Manziel “Johnny is part of a family that has resources,” Loftin said. “People criticize him for showing up at NBA games and flying in private aircraft occasionally, but it's all being done because his family can afford to do that.” No one parties like Johnny ManzielHe's On His Worst Behavior

Coming from a family that has ends, Johnny’s no fool. He knows his worth and (allegedly) signed some autographs for a nice price before the start of his sophomore season. To avoid a full-on investigation, the Aggies agreed to suspend him for a few games last year. The whole ordeal only made the argument that student-athlete’s should be compensated from the multi-billion dollar industry that they fuel for free. It also bolstered Manziel’s name into a household one. Never one to shy away from the spotlight, he took to tactics like taunting opposing players with his money dance after successful plays on the field.

The dude’s already a legend.
