I'm guessing Cleveland.
By Mike Florio
With 20 picks gone and Johnny Manziel still available, let’s consider the teams that may take him. At No. 22, could Eagles coach Chip Kelly resist the guy he recruited at Oregon? At No. 23, the Chiefs may need a successor to Alex Smith. The Browns at No. 26 make plenty of sense. At No.…
So... thank God for the Cleveland Browns. They jumped in front of us a few years ago and took the Brady Quinn bullet for us and now in 2014, history just repeated itself. I seriously think the Chiefs would've taken Johnny if the Browns didn't. HOOO LEEEE CRAAAAP!!!
I was really hoping Manziel would get to us. He may be a spoiled rich kid but IMO he has a big upside if he can reach his potential and not get hurt. Those of course are big ifs but sometimes there's a risk worth taking. IMO he was it.
Outside of that it would have opened a lot of doors for us. Cleveland and the Vikes were both wanting to trade up and get him. If we drafted him there is no rule that says we have to keep him. We could have made out with our 2nd rounder and then some. Lets say we get him trade him to Cleveland for 26th and a 2nd rounder. Manziel would have given us so many options and I think that gets lost in the fact that he's a spoil rich kid.
But that's all a moot point now. He will be with the Browns and we will see how that works out. I still think the Browns had the best night of anyone. They got the CB they wanted while picking up a 1st rounder next year. And they got the QB they wanted without giving up that 1st rounder. That's a damn good night Ray Farmer is off to a good start with them. That is of course assuming they were right in their picks. Time will tell.
