Based on Mancz’s track record and background, Lance Zierlein of NFL.com stated that “one would have to believe that he will find a way to flourish in the league.” He was slated to be taken in the sixth or seventh round by Zierlein. Mancz was envisioned by SI.com’s Chris Burke as a mid- to late fifth-round choice.
After going undrafted in the 2015 Draft, Mancz signed with the Houston Texans on May 8, 2015. He participated in the season’s first three games in 2015 before sitting out the next five.
