Johnny Manziel (Texas A&M)
One of biggest questions entering the 2014 NFL Draft was around which team would have the chutzpah to draft the reckless Johnny Manziel. Eventually, the Cleveland Browns (of all teams) decided to take on that risk, which backfired in their face. Manziel made more headlines off the field than on it, for his partying and numerous allegations of substance issues. He never became a full-time starter for Cleveland and he went from “Johnny Football” to “Johnny Clipboard” — and then finally “Johnny Unemployed.”
To date, no team has been ready to try and take on Manziel as a reclamation project. The Browns could have easily taken quarterback Derek Carr, one of the better young quarterbacks in the game right now, instead of Manziel. Other notable stars from that same draft? How about Jarvis Landry, and Devonta Freeman. Manziel hopes to work his way back into the NFL, but if that’s not possible, he’d be open to the CFL or coaching on the college level.
