Johnny Manziel is already a football legend in Texas. 

The Kerrville born quarterback set NCAA and SEC records whilst at Texas A&M and now he's decided to go pro, they don't want to see him go.

One fan, Tony Buzbee, a lawyer from Houston has set up a website and facebook page to convince Houston Texans owner Bob McNair to select Manziel with the first pick in this years NFL draft.

The website states that: "To win in the NFL a team must have a quarterback with strong leadership skills, a winning attitude, and lots of talent...If the Texans use their number one pick on Johnny, we will once again have hopes of Super Bowl glory...Don't blow it Bob--Draft Johnny!"

It would seem that Houston do need help at the quarterback position after poor performances from Matt Schaub and Case Keenum this year. However, the Texans owner has not commented on any of the quarterbacks that they might select.

In 2006, the Texans had the chance to draft Texas QB and National Championship winner Vince Young with the first overall pick but instead opted for defensive end Mario Williams from North Carolina State.

Could history repeat itself? Possibly. McNair has publicly praised defensive end Jadeveon Clowney, comparing him to Williams.

So will the Texans draft Manziel? 

We will have to wait until May 8th to find out.
