Did the Cleveland Browns just draft Johnny Manziel?
Yesterday, the Cleveland Browns decided to trade their starting running back Trent Richardson; the third overall pick in the 2012 draft to the Indianapolis Colts for their 2014 first round pick. Is this a bonehead move by the Browns? Trading away a running back that seemed destined for stardom in just his second year in the league leaves a lot of people scratching their head. But if you look at the move from a different perspective you may just understand what the Browns are thinking… Brandon Weeden; Cleveland’s starting quarterback, has been benched for long-time back-up Brian Hoyer, whether thats cause of his thumb injury or his play I don’t think it makes much of a difference. Weeden isn’t the difference maker at quarterback the Browns need…and I think they just realized that. By trading away Richardson that gives the Browns 10 draft picks in the 2014 NFL Draft, and there is player that happens to play quarterback that just won the Heisman Trophy last year, that could be the most imperfect, perfect person to fill the Browns void under center. You all know him as “Johnny Football” or the frat-star esque, trouble loving, money making, autograph signing college football stud who plays quarterback for Texas A&M. Yes, he is cocky, has a terrible attitude, is a showboat, always finds trouble and likes to party but his talent is undeniable and he is a 20 year old kid who has plenty of time to put it all past him and grow up.
All I am saying is the Browns need a quarterback and there is a great talent in this coming NFL Draft that might be a reality check and a kick in the ass away from being a franchise quarterback in the NFL. And I believe the Browns are licking their chops and getting ready to take a chance on “Johnny Football.”
