Does Johnny Manziel sound like a player with suspect intangibles and leadership skills?

Nolan Nawrocki, who evaluated pro football prospects for Pro Football Weekly, gave a scouting evaluation of what he termed were the 10 most controversial players in the draft. Manziel was the first player written about on the list:

Suspect intangibles — not a leader by example or known to inspire by his words. Carries a sense of entitlement and prima-donna arrogance seeking out the bright lights of Hollywood. Is known to party too much and is drawn to all the trappings of the game. … Has defied the odds and proven to be a great college-system quarterback, but still must prove he is willing to work to be great, adjust his hard-partying, Hollywood lifestyle and be able to inspire his teammates by more than his playmaking ability.

The question I have is do you think Manziel lacks leadership skills?  I personally do not feel that, I would say Manziel is suspect because of his size and weight, but not because of his intangibles or leadership skills.  The guy was a proven leader at Texas A&M and if you remember the Duke game it showed a perfect example of that.  Manziel was a leader and took control of that game when they were getting whooped.  I personally feel like Nawrocki was smoking the wacky tabacki on this article.  What do you think?
