Johnny Manziel gets drafted by San Diego Padres with 837th pick in 2014 MLB Draft

Well, I guess you can say that Johnny Manziel is having quite the year as he has actually now been drafted by two professional sports leagues. Just one month after he became a first-round pick of the Cleveland Browns, Manziel was selected by the San Diego Padres on Saturday with the 837th pick overall in the 2014 MLB Draft.

Yes, aside from being one of the best football players to spend time at the collegiate level, as was evidenced by the fact that he’s the first ever freshman to capture the Heisman Trophy, Manziel was also quite the gem on the diamond as well.

Of course, immediately after the Padres drafted him, the reactions began to pour in.


Of course, this was not only a wasteful move by the Padres, but also another clear sign that the Major League Baseball draft is just entirely way too long.
