Johnny Manziel wants to play for a high-profile team in the NFL and wouldn't entirely be thrilled with being drafted by the Jacksonville Jaguars as they don't exactly fit the bill.

According to reports from Don Banks of Sports Illustrated, Manziel isn't wild about the idea of joining the Jaguars due simply to the fact of the location of the franchise, Jacksonville is one of the smallest markets in the NFL.

Banks has explained that it is not a matter that Johnny Football has anything against the Jaguars team, it is just his wish to play for a higher-profile franchise in the league.

Not only has Jacksonville been an unfavoured destination discussed, but Manziel's family has also been quoted as saying being selected by the Houston Texans would be a bad move for the career of the quarterback.

His family believe that staying in his home town state of Houston would stunt the progression of Manziel and make it harder for the former Aggies' quarterback to make the transition from college football to the pros.

Obviously Manziel's opinion and his family's are not going to make the slightest difference to the NFL franchises such as Jacksonville and Houston, it will not change the minds of general managers who are willing to take a risk on the controversial quarterback.

With the draft beginning tomorrow, speculation remains at a peak of the future destination of Johnny Football.
