Manziel is considered a unique talent. He's also made his pro day a unique experience. Manziel threw while wearing shoulder pads and a helmet. No other top quarterback has done so in recent memory.

At the start of the workout, Manziel displayed his footwork from under the center with quick drops and short to intermediate passes.

The workout then moved to designed roll-outs. Manziel displayed his arm strength particularly when rolling to his right and left. Manziel completed multiple deep passes at this point in the pro day.

Manziel is known for making the spectacular play. It's the mundane throws NFL scouts want to see him make on a consistent basis. And that's where the first question mark arose.

Manziel remained flawless through the first half of the workout.

Manziel did show improved footwork, tremendous accuracy, the ability to throw on the run and above-average arm strength. But he didn't remain perfect.

Two of the potential teams with the most interest in Manziel are the Houston Texans, who own the No. 1 pick, and the Minnesota Vikings, who own the No. 8 pick. Their representatives were planted next to Manziel's head coach at Texas A&M, Kevin Sumlin.

The deep completions continued for Manziel. However, those passes didn't display pinpoint accuracy.

Due to an impressive workout, a new comparison for Manziel is now being mentioned.

Overall, Manziel proved he can make most throws and improved footwork. It was a very good workout — arguably the best among the top quarterback prospects — but there are some lingering questions about throws on deep out routes, weight transfer and throwing motion.

As everyone watched Manziel excel on the field, Nike made sure to take advantage of the exposure.

And basketball superstar LeBron James made sure to show support.

Now that the workout is over and we just mentioned James, here is "Johnny Football" throwing down a dunk:
