I've seen Manuel projected in the 3rd or 4th round. I like him but I think I'd pass. We have bigger needs. I'd look for a QB a little later in the draft.
Throwing motion needs some work. Not a quick release, and the ball comes off at a low point which is getting passes tipped at the college level. Because the ball takes a while to come out of his hands, DB's get the jump on his passes.
That being said, he's huge, has good mobility, and is a guy a team can rally around.
