ESPN analyst, Skip Bayless has once again shown his love for Johnny Manziel on twitter as the NFL draft approaches. Bayless has said that the Texas A&M QB would be more valuable than a coach.

Speaking on the back of Todd McShay's recent mock draft which places Manziel fourth overall and Blake Bortles going to the Houston Texans, Bayless tweeted:

"McShay now has Bortles going No.1 to Texans. No surprise O'Brien loves him. But is O'Brien more valuable than Manziel would be? NO."

In recent weeks more draft experts have predicted that Bortles will be the first pick in the draft with Manziel sliding down boards due to his lack of height and unpredictability.

Bayless has maintained throughout the season however that Manziel is a fantastic talent who could transform a franchise. 

New Houston Texans coach, Bill O'Brien was the coach of Penn State when they were defeated by a UCF team led by Blake Bortles. O'Brien also has links to the UCF coaching staff and probably is gathering a large amount of intel on the quarterback.

Bortles is also the prototypical size for a QB at over 6'0" tall, Manziel is only 5'11" but the debate as to who is the best quarterback will rage on way past the May 8th draft.
