The real reason Johnny Manziel slid so far

Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel experienced a big slide last night, sitting in the green room at Radio City Music Hall for over two and a half hours.

But why were teams, teams that were in desperate need of a quarterback at that, looking over the scrambling star out of College Station.

Bleacher Report’s Mike Freeman apparently had the answer:

“He was paying for being a cocky asshole,” said one AFC scout.

That's up for debate, it wouldn’t exactly be breaking news however, but teams passed up the opportunity to draft an exciting playmaker who has already sold 1,500 season tickets since joining the Browns.

Another NFL scout told Freeman that Manziel was a product of the media hype machine, much like a certain Tim Tebow.

“You guys in the media made him,” said an NFC scout. “He’s a media creation.”

Manziel spoke about the possibility of going to the Browns back in February and commented on the long history of failed Browns QB's.

“If something happens, and it’s the Cleveland Browns, I’m going to pour my heart out for the Dawg Pound and try to win a Super Bowl for Cleveland,” Manziel said, via the Houston Chronicle. “I don’t care if they’ve had 20 starting quarterbacks since 1999. I’m going to be the 21st and the guy that brought them the Super Bowl.”

Manziel doesn't seem cocky to me at all. If i was in his position with all the limelight, celebrities and exposure i would be the same.
