Barry Switzer thinks Johnny Manziel is an excellent talent, but he doesn't like Manziel's attitude.

The 76-year-old, who won three national championships at Oklahoma and Super Bowl XXX with the Cowboys, was on "The Morning After" show on CBS Sports Radio in St. Louis on Wednesday morning and was critical of the former Texas A&M star.

"I don't like Johnny Manziel's antics. I think he's an arrogant little pr---," Switzer said, according to a tweet from Tim McKernan, one of the show's hosts.

But Switzer went on to say Manziel is "the most dominant college football quarterback I've seen in a long time," and that's he's never seen a college quarterback do what Manziel does. He also said the Rams should draft him if he's available at No. 2, and that Manziel takes over a game like Michael Jordan and Oscar Robertson.

Manziel, who threw 63 touchdowns and 22 interceptions in two seasons with the Aggies, is known for his demonstrative behavior on the field. The 21-year-old led Texas A&M to an 11-2 record and Cotton Bowl win in 2012 and a 9-4 record and Chick-fil-A Bowl victory last year.

Switzer also shared his thoughts on the prospect of drafting an openly gay player.
