ORLANDO, Fla. -- Most evaluations of Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel focus on his arm and legs.

But the aspect of Manziel’s game that stands out to 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh is his eyes.

Harbaugh was asked at the NFL owners meetings about the challenges facing the NFL team that selects Manziel in the draft.

“Oh, I’d welcome the challenges of taking Johnny Manziel,” Harbaugh said. “His skill-set . . . (he) sees the field like nobody I’ve ever seen see the field in college football. You’d love to work with that.”
