NBC News is reporting Gil Brandt of NFL.com confirmed Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel has filed his paperwork to enter the 2014 NFL Draft.

Just days ago Manziel was talking about being undecided on entering the draft or staying in school.

NBC News said his aptitude for football is clear and he should be able to upgrade the position for a number of teams picking in the top half of the first round.

However, analysts said many programs will hesitate because of his lacking reputation.
