The Cleveland Browns stole the show during the first round of the recently completed 2014 NFL Draft when they traded up to the No. 22 pick in the first round to take 2012 Heisman Trophy winner and former Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel.

The Browns now have their face of the franchise, even though Browns owner Jimmy Haslem says he’s the team’s backup, but it may be hard to keep one of the more marketable players on the sideline with a clipboard in his hands.

Manziel already has the No. 1 selling rookie jersey and has already produced the first-ever Nike Pro Day Collection and now according to Nice Kicks, shoe designer Quintin Williams has come up with cleat concepts for what a “Johnny Football” shoe would look like in conjunction with his “What if?” series.

Williams inspiration came from the recently unveiled Nike Vapor Hyperagility cleat. The Manziel concept kicks feature Cleveland’s brown and orange color scheme, and even has a special Miami Heat one for one of Manziel’s biggest fans and friends, LeBron James.

If you’ve bought a Manziel jersey, would you buy a pair of these concept cleats? Do you think these cleats will look good on the sidelines holding a clipboard or will Manziel earn a starting job this year for the Browns?
