NFL Draft rumors: St. Louis Rams' interest in Johnny Manziel is 'serious'

With just six days left until the NFL Draft gets underway, there really has been no clear cut indication as to where Heisman winner Johnny Manziel will end up, other than the word that he will not make it out of the top 10. The team with the number two pick, the St. Louis Rams, could be one of the teams to pull the trigger on bringing in arguably the most marketable player of all time, and Chris Mortensen recently pointed out on ESPN that their interest in Johnny Football is indeed legitimate.

“I believe their interest is serious,” Mortensen said. “There are people who believe they could take him at No. 2.”

As time has gone on, there have been more and more questions surrounding the quarterback position in St. Louis, and potentially moving on from Sam Bradford and his $14 million salary while installing Manziel as the starter would save the team a lot of money as well as create a new type of buzz around the organization.

Also, Jeff Fisher is not stranger to working with a dynamic quarterback. He drafted Vince Young out of Texas and performed some good work with him under center leading his offense. So while anyone thinks that Manziel wouldn’t fit the offensive style that Fisher has in place in St. Louis, they might want to think again.
