Manziel and Clowney to be joined by 28 other hopefuls at NFL Draft

Johnny Manziel, Jadeveon Clowney, Blake Bortles and Teddy Bridgewater will help make history at the NFL Draft in May.

The famous four, touted for great success, are each one of 30 people who will be attending the NFL Draft.

The amount of prospects is a record number for the NFL to have in attendance at New York's Radio City Music Hall.

There will be some upset faces no doubt as not all of the teams will be drafting during the first round and many of them are in similar positions.

Whilst there must be some deals that are already done, maybe the exposure of other options will help the young prospects in later rounds.

Otherwise, we are going to be watching the draft and seeing a lot of grumpy unhappy faces, much like looking at the judges in a Simon Cowell talent show.

The draft has divided many critics who see Jadeveon Clowney as the number one pick, whilst Manziel's name doesn't seem to disappear despite his stock dropping lately.

An interesting omission is that of Michael Sam. The Missouri player who came out back in February has not been expected to be a high draft pick and his pro days seem to reflect that, despite the media attention he garnered.
