In one of the least surprising moves of the draft process, the Jacksonville Jaguars are meeting with Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel on Tuesday as they try to hammer out a draft day strategy for May. While the team is widely considered to be favoring Jadeveon Clowney or Teddy Bridgewater, the Jaguars wouldn’t be doing their jobs if they passed up a meeting the potential No. 1 overall pick in the draft.
Manziel’s meetings with the Jaguars will begin tomorrow.

We don’t know what the Jaguars plan on doing but the very well could look at Manziel at No. 3 overall if he falls there. If such a scenario plays out — which is very possible — the Jaguars want to make sure they know what they’re passing on if the choose against drafting Manziel.
A meeting bodes well for Manziel’s chances of going No. 3 overall but it doesn’t guarantee it. Still, the Jaguars are a possibility for Manziel at No. 3 but it’s hard to gauge just how interested the Jaguars really are.
