When the NFL released the Cleveland Browns preseason schedule, one local Cleveland radio host, says it proved the Browns will be taking Johnny Manziel in the upcoming NFL draft. His reason behind his stupid thought process is because the NFL wants to see the Johnny Manziel against the RGIII match up.
First of all in order for Cleveland to draft Manziel, the Browns would have to be assured he will be available by the 4th pick, unless Cleveland trades up to waste yet another 1st round pick on a guy who is totally unproven in the NFL. All players coming out of college and into the NFL are unproven.
But in the case of Manziel, is it wise to waste picks trading up to take him?
Secondly, the NFL would have to be aware of Cleveland’s plans in the upcoming draft. The schedule is featuring the Browns playing the Washington Redskins in prime-time. Just because the Browns play the Redskins in prime-time, doesn’t necessarily mean the team will be drafting Manziel.
The Browns have too many other needs to waste picks in this draft. No matter who Cleveland has playing at quarterback, the Browns have to protect him. The right side of the Cleveland offensive line has been offensive over the past two seasons.
The Browns have got to do something to fix this problem and the team could very well be without a center this season if Jacksonville make Alex Mack an offer Cleveland deems ridiculous.
If the Browns are going to turn around all the losing they have to use this years draft picks wisely. They can’t just throw them away in the same fashion they wasted 2 first round picks in 2012.The team needs to draft wisely and Johnny Manziel is not making good use of your draft picks.
