Johnny Manziel heading to meet New England Patriots

More April non-fools as QB Johnny Manziel is heading up to see the New England Patriots.

The now divisive draft prospect from Texas A&M has been touted at many different franchises and many different draft positions.

I've seen mock drafts that have him as the number one pick, and some as a third round pick.

But that won't bother Bill Belichick, who is obviously taking a look with the franchise's future in mind.

Current QB Tom Brady is no doubt reaching a natural end to his career and a few experiments at a potential replacement don't seem to have been fruitful.

We all of course remember Tim Tebow being signed up for a short time.

But the current Patriots QB depth chart obviously doesn't have the talent or the potential talent that Johnny Manziel obviously has.

You couldn't ask for a better tutor for Manziel in Brady and Belichick. You also couldn't ask for a better situation, having to hone his game and serve his dues as a number two QB. 

If drafted to a franchise in the early stages, it's likely that he'll be the starting QB for that franchise, a practice that doesn't seem to have served most people that well in the previous years. Expect for a few exceptions.

If Belichick is impressed, you can be sure to see some aggressive trading before the draft as the Patriots head coach will do what he does around the NFL Draft. That is to force his way back in to a competitive draft position by trading picks and players around like an offshore investments' tax avoidance scheme.

The internet will explode over the outcome of this, so we'll be keeping our eyes open.
