2014 NFL Draft Rumors: Jacksonville Jaguars drafting Johnny Manziel 'remote'?

The Jacksonville Jaguars own the third pick in the 2014 NFL Draft and will have their choice of quarterbacks when their pick comes around.

One such name continually linked to the Jaguars is former Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel, but according to the Florida Times Union the chances of the Jaguars drafting Manziel are ‘remote’.

Several mock drafts have the Jaguars taking Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel with the third overall pick. I’ve always seen that as remote and still do — the Jaguars want their offensive modus operandi to be a) a strong running game, b) play-action pass and c) a quarterback with a big arm to take shots downfield.

The biggest factor in drafting Manziel, in addition to his height, would be his durability. Plus, are the Jaguars comfortable overhauling their scheme for Manziel?

It should be noted that this is more the opinion of Ryan O’Halloran but FTU reporter is quite connected to the Jags franchise and is plugged in to what they’re doing.

Could it be nothing more than a smoke screen? Or are the Jags really not interested?
