NFL Draft season is in full swing, which means the draft analysts on television will be coming forward with their latest projections for May. ESPN’s Mel Kiper Jr., who is one of the biggest reasons that the draft is where it is at today, recently released his latest mock draft with a certain controversial signal-caller at the top.

Kiper has the Houston Texans taking Texas A&M star quarterback Johnny Manziel, with two other quarterbacks going in the top ten. In a surprising move, Kiper has UCF’s Blake Bortles going No. 4 to the Cleveland Browns ahead of Louisville’s Teddy Bridgewater, who many believe is the top signal-caller in the draft.

Bridgewater comes in at No. 8 to the Minnesota Vikings, while Fresno State’s Derek Carr doesn’t crack the top ten.

Who are the other players that Kiper has going in the top ten of his latest mock?

Here is the top ten of Kiper’s latest mock draft:
