Andre Johnson likes Johnny Manziel, however would trade top pick


There has been a lot of pleading from fans for the Houston Texans to take Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel. Fans have even put up billboards encouraging the team to draft him. Houston Texans wide receiver Andre Johnson shared his opinion of Manziel.

“[Manziel] seems like a good kid. Very into football,” Johnson said. “He’s exciting. He’s an exciting player to watch. I enjoyed watching him in college. He doesn’t have the name Johnny Football for nothing. I think he’s a great player.”

However, if Johnson were playing general manager, he’d trade away the top pick.

“I have thought about different scenarios. Me personally, if I had it, I would probably trade it, but that’s just my opinion,” Johnson said, via ABC 13 in Houston.

“That doesn’t make it right. Doesn’t mean they should listen to me, because I am not the GM. I have never had to sit in the draft room like that.”
