Johnny Manziel wants to be drafted by his hometown Houston Texans. He’s making that fact known. Using this draft preparation to ensure teams he is “100 percent, can’t miss,” Manziel believes letting him fall to Jacksonville in their division would be the “worst decision they’ve ever made.”
“It would be the worst decision they’ve ever made,” he says, smiling. “I’d be in the same division playing against them twice a year. Sorry, but you just turned that chip on my shoulder from a Frito into a Dorito.”
Keeping the “Texas kid” in Texas would certainly be the popular choice, especially with the media. Though initial popularity doesn’t save O’Brien’s job if Manziel can’t run his system. Teddy Bridgewater is another option. So is Blake Bortles, though there seems to be a disparity between media and NFL draft evaluations.
Then there’s Clowney. Do you draft the QB with a “very good” ceiling over the pass rusher with a “once in a generation” one? There’s not that much differential between Manziel/Bridgewater/Bortles and whoever is there at the top of the second round.
