The NFL Draft is right around the corner and if there’s a more interesting prospect than Johnny Manziel we haven’t met him yet. While the likes of Jadeveon Clowney and Sammy Watkins are exciting, Manziel is the biggest wild card at the top of the draft and he will be the one prospect that is universally watched by all football fans tuning into the draft.
As a result, scouts and draft evaluators have been glued to Manziel throughout the offseason and it now appears that he’s won virtually all of them over.
On Johnny Manziel: It is not clear which team will definitely draft him. But no evaluator I have talked to thinks he falls out of the Top 10

We’ve seen Manziel mocked all of the place in recent months but it appears that he’s solidifying his top 10 status. That doesn’t mean he’s a top 10 prospect but there is so much excitement about him that teams will undoubtedly trade up to get him.
The same thing happened with Tim Tebow and Manziel is a better talent that he was. Not everyone wants Manziel but he’s the type of player teams take a chance on and if he slides it’s completely realistic to believe he’ll be gone before the Titans go on the clock at No. 11.
