Johnny Manziel is better than any quarterback in the 2015 NFL Draft. Cool. Now that I have your attention I can start my article and you have the option of logging onto Facebook and telling the world I am crazy. (Note: You will not be the first person to chant this so stand in line…now onto the story).
With the NFL Draft less than 4 hours away, ESPN, NFL Network and just about every pundit will have their eyes on what happens tonight. The Tennessee Titans own the second pick in this years draft and the rumor is that they will choose Oregon University Quarterback Marcus Mariota. With that being stated, if the Titans are reading this, I implore you to take my advice and trade this pick to the Cleveland Browns.
The Browns are the NFL’s version of Murphy’s Law. Never has an organization with so much talent had such bad luck. From “The Drive” to “The Fumble” to “Red Right 88” to Art Modell’s infamous “The Move”, it is hard not to have some empathy for this great organization. On that note, it would be fitting for the Browns to trade up to the number 2 selection and try to turn it all around but this article, believe it or not, is more about the fortunes of the Titans and not the Browns. While the Browns are trying desperately to make a bold statement, Marcus Mariota may bring the team a great deal of promise but the real steal of this trade proposal is the addition of Johnny Manziel to the deal.
There are rumors that the Browns have offered the number 12 and the number 19 picks in the 2015 NFL Draft to move up to the number 2 slot. With that pick they would select Mariota. I feel that the Titans should request that Johnny Manziel be included in the package and if “Johnny Football” is given in the deal, this could change the fortune of a franchise and that franchise is the Tennessee Titans.
Mark my words, Johnny Manziel is going to be a star and he needs a fresh start. If he is allowed to just concentrate on football he will show the world that he has been humbled and that he is a true leader. The days of his time at Texas A & M were not a fluke. His size is not an issue. If his attitude changes, Johnny Manziel, along with the draft picks mentioned could lead the Titans to the promise land.
It is very rare that a trade in the NFL could work out for both teams but this deal has the potential to bring excitement to Cleveland and a future Super Bowl to the people of Tennessee. Will it happen? Rumors are swirling all over the Internet as we speak and the rumors have Marcus Mariota as the top commodity in today’s discussion. The deal proposed is a deal that could make winners out of everyone involved. Will it happen? Stay tuned…
