Texas A&M Football: How Will Teams Try to Stop Johnny Manziel?

Ever since Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel burst onto the scene in 2012, opposing defensive coordinators have been racking their brains for ways to contain him. With an entire offseason at their disposal, all of the Southeastern Conference teams have been trying to answer the question, "How do you stop Johnny Manziel?"

Manziel set an SEC record with 5,116 total yards in his first collegiate season. He led the Aggies to an 11-2 record in their inaugural season in the SEC. 

In the process, he broke a multitude of school, conference and NCAA records. Manziel is the only player in collegiate football history to pass for 300 yards and rush for 100 yards in a game on three separate occasions. 

Manziel defined prolific in 2012. The scary thing for opposing defensive coordinators is that he should have a better grasp of the Aggie offense in 2013, with a year of experience under his belt.

If Manziel has another season in 2013 like he had in 2012, the Aggies should compete for a conference and national title. This is a look at how opposing defenses will try to stop Manziel in 2013.
