Johnny Manziel won't go in the first round of the Draft

Published Add your comment

A big name personality in the NFL has not only made the prediction that former Texas A&M Quarterback Johnny Manziel will not go first in this years draft, but that he won't even go in the first round.

NFL Network General Manager Charley Casserly is the man to make the prediction and should it come true, some people may not be as shocked as first expected.

Most people expect Manziel to go in the top 10 but Casserly supposedly spoke with eight executives in January and only one of the eight reportedly saw Manziel as a top 15 talent.

The number one overall pick in Casserly's mock draft was unsurprisingly South Carolina's Defensive-end Jadeveon Clowney.

The issue is dividing everyone in the world of football, bookmakers William Hill have Manziel as 6/5 to go fifth or later in the draft and have put him as odds on to go in the first four.

However, Ladbrokes are placing Manziel odds on to still be un-drafted after the first four selections.

Manziel's future will soon be known but fans have a few more days of speculating the matter before that happens.
