The last thing George Whitfield Jr. expected was for Johnny Manziel to throw the ball. The Texas A&M star, after all, was blindfolded. Whitfield, a “quarterback whisperer” or, as he calls himself, a “quarterback engineer,” had never attempted the now-named Zorro drill with one of his protégés. He wanted Manziel to practice some air throws before actually throwing a pass to one of three receivers. But on Manziel's first three-step drop, Paris Cotton, standing some 15 yards away to Manziel's right, clapped his hands three times, and the Heisman Trophy winner drilled the former Central Michigan running back in the hands.
