Johnny Manziel Is Going Pro… Which Team Is Gonna Get Him?


Johnny ManzielAs we recently told you, there was a realistic chance that Johnny Manziel stayed at Texas A&M after this season.

But, it doesn’t matter. He’s (reportedly) not staying.

Darren Heitner is an agent and someone who would know something like this. Other outlets are running with the news, because there’s no reason to think this isn’t credible.

So, Johnny Football will be in the 2014 NFL Draft. He has essentially declared. The question is: Who’s gonna pick him?

It’s very likely that he goes in the first round. With Zach Mettenberger suffering a serious injury and Marcus Mariota staying at Oregon, it’ll be an upset if Johnny drops out of the first.

So, here are the teams that will strongly consider a quarterback in the first round:

Houston Texans (favored to get the No. 1 pick… but I’m not 100% convinced they will)
St. Louis Rams
Minnesota Vikings
Jacksonville Jaguars
Cleveland Browns
Oakland Raiders
New York Jets
Arizona Cardinals
Baltimore Ravens (hahaha that’s a joke, but only half-joking)

If Teddy Bridgewater comes out, as expected (though he’s reportedly not sure yet, he’s the odds-on favorite to be the top pick. But there’s no guarantee a team doesn’t pick Jadeveon Clowney over him. Or a different quarterback.

Basically, Manziel is a few clear steps behind Clowney and Bridgewater, unless a team falls in love with him. The next group is him, Derek Carr and Blake Bortles, probably. Then, it just comes down to whom teams prefer. It’s all a crapshoot.

If I had to guess, teams will be a bit reluctant to get him (height, ATTITUDE, etc.), so he’ll drop at least to the 10-15 range. But, I’m completely guessing. If that’s the case… maybe it’s the Jets or Cardinals?

I’m gonna go with Jets or Cardinals. I’m completely guessing. Some teams will probably hate him; others will love him. All I know is: Johnny in New York would make everyone’s heads explode, and as a Jets fan and sports blogger, I couldn’t be any more excited for the possibility.

What do you think? Chime in below, or on Twitter.

    Just stop typing.

    Anyone who thinks Manziel wont be the no.1 overall pick is insane. Any QB who can almost single handedly win SEC is hall of fame NFL QB. Clowney’s injuries would have me more concerned than Johnny’s attitude. It should be obvious to everyone by now that Luke Joeckel benefited enormously by playing with Manziel. Enough so that he was second overall pick, and youre telling me Manziel is mid rounder. Idiots like you are reason Rodgers went 24th overall.

    From what I have heard he is a very self centered, sarcastic,narcissistic little guy who really loves himself.

  • mezeus

    Let’s us not forget Tim Tebow. Wasn’t he pretty good in collage ??? DUH (-:

  • Z

    Definitely he going to be pick by the TExans

  • Eric Chastain

    How are people even considering Manziel in the first round? He is Michael Vick minus the speed and arm… What is vick without his speed and arm? Nothing. The AJ McCarron is 10 times the QB this guy is, why is he never mentioned?
