Johnny Manziel believes that he can be the number one pick in the  draft this May and now he has received a ringing endorsement from a current NFL player.

Richie Incognito, the subject of the Wells Report into bullying with the Miami Dolphins was interviewed by TMZ Sport whilst enjoying a night out on the town last Saturday.

"I think he is (the number one pick)... He's a hell of a football player." Said Incognito, proudly wearing a cap adorned with the message 'swag' throughout the interview.

"I think what he brings to the game is an interesting dynamic- he can really move with his feet and extend the play. That's something in the NFL, that we're looking forward to. Young kids coming and being able to contribute early."

Incoginto is a free agent this season and it is not thought to be likely that he will sign a contract with an NFL team considering his lengthy suspension from the Dolphins.

In the Wells report, Incognito was found to have harassed Jonathan Martin and another member of the Dolphins playing staff.

Manziel recently told the Houston Chronicle that if the Houston Texans passed on him at number one that it would be "the worst decision they ever made."

The draft destination of the former Texas A&M quarterback could be partially decided this weekend, when he takes part in the NFL scouting combine in Indianapolis.
