The Cleveland Browns caused a lot of excitement on draft day this year when they traded up to select quarterback Johnny Manziel. But is Cleveland really the right place for Manziel, Skip Bayless doesn't believe so.

The ESPN analyst took to twitter today to claim that Manziel could be better with the Kansas City Chiefs who were reportedly also looking to draft him.

Bayless said:"I'm told KC would've taken Manziel w/ next pick. Wish he hadn't texted Browns QB coach. He'd have been much better off w/ Andy Reid."

The Browns seemed delighted on draft day to have secured perhaps the most exciting college football player of all time, but have since distanced themselves from the view that Manziel is an automatic starter.

However, it seems unlikely that Manziel would be an automatic starter with the Chiefs either especially considering their great run with Alex Smith last season.

Clearly Bayless believes that Manziel would be able to be nurtured much better by Andy Reid in Kansas City than by rookie head coach Mike Pettine in Cleveland.

Manziel needs to learn how to play the quarterback position in the NFL and the only way that he can do that is by going through a thorough training camp and working hard to be the starter.

The Browns seem to be going about that the right way and instilling in their rookie, a work ethic which could propel him to be their franchise player in years to come.

Do you think Johnny Manziel is with the right team? Let us know in the comments.
