NFL draft quarterback, Johnny Manziel has confirmed who he will be bringing to the draft as his guest, and it may not be who you think.

Despite Busted Coverage campaigning for a number of models to attend the draft with the quarterback, Manziel has instead opted to invited six-year-old fan and friend Charlie Dina to New York.

Charlie was diagnosed with cancer in 2012 and Manziel has been a strong campaigner for his charity 'Charlie's Angels'.

The youngster was a regular attendee at Manziel's games at College Station and now will be present at the biggest moment of the quarterback's career so far when his name is called at Radio City Music Hall later tonight.

Manziel himself confirmed the invite today by tweeting: "MY hero" along with the link to article

The interview from that article is above. Manziel's admiration for his fan shows a very different side to the party-animal which some have portrayed the quarterback as being.
