The 2014 NFL Draft is now just three days away and the one burning question that seems to be on everyone’s mind is where former Texas A&M QB Johnny Manziel is going to end up. Manziel is projected to go pretty early in the first round, more than likely somewhere within the top ten. There are plenty of teams that could use Johnny Football that have a really good chance of snatching him up within the first five picks. Houston, with the first overall pick is in desperate need of a QB, but then again, so is Jacksonville, Cleveland, and Oakland, whom in order hold the third, fourth, and fifth picks.
The St. Louis Rams have the potential of having the best first round in the draft holding both the second and thirteenth picks. Last Friday Rams Gm Les Snead traveled to Texas Tech University to meet with Manziel, WR Mike Evans, and OT Jake Matthews, all of whom the Rams have showed interest in. Snead met with Manziel’s offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach in 2012 at A&M and had pretty good things to say about Johnny Football, claiming that he could “adjust to life well as an NFL passer.”
St. Louis still has QB Sam Bradford under contract for another year, but unless the rams can show notable improvement on the offensive side of the ball, it could be time to start looking at other options for the position. Should the Rams Draft Manziel with the second overall pick? Should they wait and see if hes available for the 13th pick? Maybe the Rams should wait until the second or third round to draft a backup for Bradford and get a guy like Jadeveon Clowney or Sammy Watkins in the first round.
