I wouldn't draft Johnny "It's about me" Manziel, I wouldn't even want him as a free agent!! He is too much drama and his game will not translate to the NFL.

Not if there is another player with a pulse and a better attitude.

Probably thousands of them.

It will be interesting to see where he ends up and if Jerry Jones would take him! JJ loves drama! I think he is banking too much on Russell Wilson's success and we are talking a totally different personality there. Polar opposites those two are.

Manziel made statements and assumptions early on that he would have been much better off to keep his mouth shut. I don't think he is the best choice for QB in this draft. Falling to the 20s would do him a favor, it worked for Aaron. His I'm the greatest attitude took a major hit and he has said, a big dose of reality and humble pie is what he needed. Sometimes he could still use some but with his ability, I look past it. Manziel needs to tone himself down major before he gets to a team or they will do it for him.

Would I? Heck no. Character being the biggest factor. I also think he's a bit over-rated (his O-line and WR's are really good, something that tends to get over looked when talking about him) and his game won't translate to the NFL.

Someone will take a flyer on him, that's a given as he's talented. He has something, I just don't think it'll translate into success in the NFL. I think he'll fall though. He's not going high as the pundits say he will, in my opinion.

He's a gimmick like Tebow.. So no. He will not be drafted before the 20th pick

I was about to make the Tebow comparison, the difference being though, Manziel can actually throw, Tebow can't throw to save his life.

Not #1 overall and not even the first QB taken. Bortles going before him has got to chap Manziel's hide.

Manziel is going to drop, not a bad thing for him really.

He goes to the Browns, probably not his favorite choice, too bad and in the 20s, too, not the high pick he thought he was!
