I guess these people didn’t learn anything from the 2012 draft. The fans wanted the Browns to draft Trent Richardson and they did.
Turns out the guy who the Browns wasted the 3 overall pick in the 2012 NFL draft, isn’t even a good substitute in the NFL. Richardson is one of the worst picks in the history of the NFL.
Now that the Browns don’t even know who the head coach is going to be, fans in the Cleveland area are thinking the Browns really need Manziel.
I ask, what for? Manziel may have had some success in the NCAA, but he won’t find the same thing when and if he makes the transition into the NFL.
Manziel isn’t big enough to take the beating NFL linebackers and corner backs will lay on him. Running quarterbacks don’t last long in the NFL and there are no running quarterbacks that can get out of bed after they call it a career.
Cleveland needs a pocket passer. Someone without the attitude Manziel brings to the table. If Manziel thinks he is going to bring the same attitude into the NFL, he should be aware of how fast the NFL defenses will knock it off his face.
Some of the most successful NFL QB’s are pure pocket passers. Guys like Brady, Manning and even Andrew Luck.
The Browns need a guy with brains enough to stand in the pocket and read a defense and make the plays. If they use the pick on Manziel, Cleveland will just prolong the process of finding a franchise quarterback.
It isn’t Johnny Manziel.
