Quarterback EJ Manuel will be doing a weekly diary here on Birds 24/7 as we count down to the draft. It should be a very cool feature and we’re excited to have him.
As it just so happens, his first entry comes on the heels of Mike Mayock declaring Manuel the second best quarterback in this draft class, moving him past Matt Barkley. That’s where we started the Q&A:
Mike Mayock called into 97.5 The Fanatic Thursday to give his take on Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly.
“He is highly charismatic. He is very much a CEO,” said Mayock. “He understands how to hire people, he understands how to delegate. But when it comes to his offense, he’s the guy. He’s a play-caller, and I’m not so sure I believe in that in the NFL at this point.”
The term “CEO” is interesting, because it was used by Howie Roseman this week when talking about what it takes to do this job.
