Favre shows off huge arms in short NFL Draft video


Brett Favre is analyzing the NFL Draft.

The former Packers, Jets and Vikings quarterback isn't working for NFL Network, ESPN or any other media platform. He's simply sitting in what seems to be his home in Hattiesburg, Mississippi, talking about the draft.

Favre didn't get into any detail on the Vikings, but he did talk about a player that's often been compared to "His Favreness," Johnny Manziel.

"I personally like Johnny Manziel as the (best) quarterback in the draft," Favre said. "I think Blake Bortles is different, but is a good prospect as well. Depends on your need and your type of scheme that you're playing. But I think Manziel is probably the best playmaker in all the draft."

Favre, sporting some cannons for arms and a tank top promoting the site he posted the video on, thinks the St. Louis Rams will use the No. 2 overall pick on Clemson wide receiver Sammy Watkins.

"I do think that St. Louis, obviously doesn't need a quarterback... I think Sammy Watkins is too good to pass up, really for all the teams – such a playmaker," he said. "So I think St. Louis would lean in that direction."

At the end of the day, this post is as much about Favre's continued effort to resemble a grizzly bear as it is to fill fans in on what he thinks of the draft. His beard, though, has been slightly groomed.

If you recall, Favre is biking and lifting weights a lot. His agent Bus Cook recently joked at a convention that Favre would still be better than most quarterbacks in the NFL today.
