Except he isn't as athletic as Kaepernick, but he does have good athletic ability.
On the other hand, Manuel started 31 games and won 25 of them with the Seminoles. He put it together this year. Had a bad showing or two, but he really improved. I thought he was Top 50 worthy and would go to Buffalo or someone at the top of round two. It was surprising to see him go that high. Then again, he is smart, a good leader and has experience in a pro-style offense that has prepared him well for the NFL. I think he will do fine.
