With just six days left until the NFL Draft gets underway, there really has been no clear cut indication as to where Heisman Award winner Johnny Manziel will end up, other than the common knowledge that he shouldn't drop out of the top 10.

The team that have the second overall choice in the draft, the St. Louis Rams, could be the team that ends up pulling the trigger on the Texas A&M star who is expected to be the most famous draft pick ever, and Chris Mortensen recently pointed out on ESPN that their interest in Johnny Football is indeed legitimate.

“I believe their interest is serious,” Mortensen said earlier today. “There are people who believe they could take him at No. 2.”

As time has gone on, there have been more and more questions surrounding the quarterback position in St. Louis, and potentially moving on from Sam Bradford, who is set to earn $14 million dollars next year - the last of his contract.

Whilst installing Manziel as the starter would save the team a lot of money as well as create a new type of buzz around the organization.

Also, Jeff Fisher is not stranger to working with a dynamic quarterback. He drafted Vince Young out of Texas and performed some good work with Young in control as play-caller.

So if there is anyone out there who is definitely sure that Manziel won't drop past two then think again, it's a real possibility on May 8th.
