A number of NFL scouts have recently gone on record to declare Johnny Manziel a possible fourth round pick in the draft, triggering doubts about whether many coaches in the league would like to work with him. There is one elite NFL coach however, who remains keen on the Texas A&M man.

Jim Harbaugh, head coach of the San Francisco 49ers has said that he would relish the opportunity to work with Johnny Manziel:

“I’d welcome the challenges of taking Johnny Manziel,” Harbaugh said, via the San Francisco Chronicle. “[He] sees the field like nobody I’ve ever seen see the field in college football. You’d love to work with that.”

Harbaugh's comments have to be taken with a pinch of salt, he already has a very good quarterback on his team in Colin Kaepernick and the team have made the playoffs for three straight years under Harbaugh.

Manziel is expected to be a top-10 pick and the 49ers will pick toward the end of the first round and so the chances of Johnny Football dressing in red and gold next season are probably pretty slim.

However, Harbaugh's comments as one of the top coaches in the NFL might just convince other teams to give Manziel a chance in 2014.
