Johnny Manziel put on a show Thursday morning during his personal pro day. Manziel immediately received praise for going through his scripted throwing routine in shells -- a helmet and shoulder pads -- and there were plenty of teams from around the league that showed up to see the workout first hand.

In fact, only two teams were not present at Texas A&M's indoor facility -- the Chicago Bears and the Cleveland Browns -- according to Albert Breer of the NFL Network.

The Bears' absence is not a huge surprise considering their confidence in current quarterback Jay Cutler, but it is notable that the quarterback-needy Browns decided to skip out on the pro day.

However, don't let the Browns' absence lead you to believe they have no interest in the Texas A&M star. Cleveland is expected to put Manziel through a workout and hold a private meeting with him at some point before the draft.
