Johnny Manziel performed for scouts on Thursday in a pro day separate from the one held by Texas A&M on March 5, and following his well-attended throwing session, the Jaguars met with the former Heisman Trophy winning quarterback, according to Albert Breer of NFL.com.

In a unique pro day setting that featured rap music, George and Barbara Bush and Manziel wearing a helmet and shoulder pads for his throwing session, the former Aggies quarterback impressed. With eight head coaches and eight general managers in attendance, including Gus Bradley and Dave Caldwell, Manziel completed 61-of-64 passes, including a bevy of deep balls.

In addition to Bradley and Caldwell, the Jaguars also had Tony Khan and offensive coordinator Jedd Fisch in attendance on Tuesday. That's the same contingent that attended the pro days of Louisville quarterback Teddy Bridgewater and Central Florida quarterback Blake Bortles, although college scouting director Kyle O'Brien was also at UCF.

The latest mock draft from SB Nation's Matthew Fairburn has Manziel slated to be picked with the ninth selection by the Cleveland Browns following a trade.

In two seasons at Texas A&M, Manziel accumulated 7,820 yards passing with 63 touchdowns and 22 interceptions. He also tallied 2,169 yards rushing and 30 touchdowns on the ground.
