The rumors have been rampant throughout the entire pre-draft process as to where Heisman winner and former Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel will end up when the NFL Draft gets kicked off this Thursday night, but according to a breaking report from Fox Sports insider Jay Glazer, the Cleveland Browns will not be his new home.

This is actually somewhat of a surprise, as it appeared recently they would look at him seriously with that fourth overall pick, but should Glazer be correct, they’ll be looking in a different direction. Whether or not it’s the way of another quarterback remains to be seen, but we know now that it won’t be Johnny Football becoming the new savior of the Dawg Pound.
At this point now, with this being decided, you could more than likely look for the Browns to target either a wide receiver with that fourth overall pick, or one of the offensive tackles, Jake Matthews or Greg Robinson. To fill the quarterback need now, they may just wait until their second pick in the first round.
