The assumption is that the most athletic people are the ones who reach the highest levels of their respective games. In the NBA, Kobe Bryant, Lebron James and Michael Jordan immediately come to mind. In the NFL, we think of Michael Vick and Calvin Johnson. In the MLB, names like Derek Jeter and Robinson Cano come into conversation.

DEAR GOMES — I loved watching Johnny Manziel dance around and make ridiculous throws at Texas A&M and am wondering how his game will translate to the NFL. Is he going to be the next big thing?­ — Aggie Lover
