Is your team looking to sell tickets? Then Johnny Manziel is the guy to draft. He has been the most electrifying college football player for two years and his antics off the field have just added to the hype of this kid. Yes Johnny is still a kid but no one doubts his passion for the game and a desire to succeed on the next level. He was not blessed with prototypical quarterback height, nor does he have a cannon of an arm. What he does have is the uncanny ability to make plays when they are none to be had. Will he have to adjust his game to the NFL? Of course. Will he be successful in doing so? Absolutely. Given that he is put in the right situation.
Plenty of teams need a quarterback, especially one that can sell tickets. I can truly see Manziel going to the Browns, depending on who the team hires as its head coach of course. But the Browns are a team that isn't that far from being really competitive. With Josh Gordon and Jordan Cameron as stellar playmakers already and a defense that showed signs of being really good, Johnny Football would not be asked to carry the team. Finally, the city of Cleveland would have something to root for since the fictitious Indians team in “Major League.”
The style of offense is changing, quarterbacks are changing. Manziel would join Robert Griffin III, Colin Kaepernick, Russell Wilson, and Cam Newton as the ideal scrambling, playmaking quarterback of this era. Perhaps he may even make a Browns' jersey look awesome. Although, he would look great in those awesome Vikings' uniforms. I am the same age as Johnny Football and I can only envy the life he is going to have in the NFL. For now I will have to settle with just covering sports.
