Manziel hasn't yet declared for the NFL Draft, but it would seem like that's basically a formality at this point. Once he hires an agent, he'll be ineligible for NCAA play, so it's pretty safe to assume that he'll be declaring for the draft shortly.

Manziel is projected by many to be one of the top QBs taken in the draft, likely in the 1st round. Teams potentially interested in him include the Texans, Jaguars, Vikings, and other teams near the top of the draft who are in need of a QB.

Manziel won the Heisman Trophy in his freshman year, and followed it with a fantastic sophomore season in which he finished 5th, behind Jameis Winston, AJ McCarron, Jordan Lynch and Andre Williams.

We'll see how NFL teams look at him when the draft comes.
