Johnny Manziel doesn't do understated.

The 2012 Heisman Trophy winner earned the nickname "Johnny Football" by delivering dramatic performances in big moments. The 21-year-old from Tyler, Texas doesn't seem to have any plan to change his style ahead of the 2014 NFL Draft. When dozens of representatives from nearly every NFL team came to College Station to watch him throw, Manziel delivered a larger-than-life performance that put his talent and his showmanship on display.

"I wanted to put on a good show for them," Manziel told Lindsey H. Jones of USA TODAY Sports after the March 27 workout.

Manziel succeeded in putting on a show with an unusual Pro Day. Perhaps more importantly, that show drew rave from reviews. From the unusual gear on Manziel to his star-studded audience, here are more than a dozen of the things that made Manziel's Pro Day one to remember:
