WATCH: Johnny Manziel participates in pro day at University of San Diego

Texas A&M legend Johnny Manziel spent Thursday morning working out in front of NFL scouts at the University of San Diego’s pro day.

And from the looks of photos and videos from the scene, plenty of NFL scouts showed up to watch the former Heisman Trophy winner throw the ball around. It’s the first time Manziel has publicly thrown for NFL teams since he led the Browns to a 2-4 record in 2015.

That season, he completed 58 percent of his passes, throwing for 1,500 yards and 7 touchdowns. He also tossed 5 interceptions and rushed the ball 37 times for 230 yards.

Sports Illustrated’s Bruce Feldman, who first reported the session would take place, says the program approached Manziel about being the quarterback for their pro day. By rule, underclassmen are not permitted to participate in pro day. Manziel has been training in San Diego, so the partnership makes sense.

Here are some clips of Manziel’s morning in San Diego that have been circulating on Twitter:

Manziel’s mental health could end up being the deciding factor for NFL teams, assuming he’s physically ready. The A&M legend revealed last month that he was diagnosed with bi-polar disorder, and has been fighting through those issues.

“I felt like the end of the world was near and that I would never make it out,”  Manziel told TMZ in February. “As dark as it gets, eventually times will get better.”

The former Heisman Trophy winner also spent time with Good Morning America, detailing how his struggle with alcohol abuse derailed his first NFL shot.

“I started taking a look at my mental health a little bit,”  Manziel told GMA last month, “and making it a priority.”
