Who's the Best Fit for Johnny Manziel

Today Sport DFW will discuss Johnny Manziel and his impact in the NFL – and potentially the Cowboys. This is the second of three burning questions on Johnny Manziel that will be addressed today. Joining me in the conversation is Texas A&M expert and Sport DFW Staff Writer, Justin Thomas.

Burning Question 2 

What is the ideal situation for Johnny Manziel and will his off the field drama be an issue for him in the NFL?

Justin Thomas:

I actually think Houston would be a great landing spot for Manziel if they back out of the #1 spot. He has a big target in Andre Johnson and a stout defense when they are healthy. Don’t be surprised if Oakland drafts him. In that atmosphere he would be legendary if he succeeded. The problem is wherever he goes, he will need to stay away from all the trappings of an NFL player or it wont work.

Reid Hanson:

I think Jacksonville at #3 would be an ideal spot for Manziel. Gus Bradley in Jacksonville is a defensive guru but the need at QB trumps his desires on defense. I am currently projecting Clowney to go #2 making Manziel the choice for the Jags.
The Jags are terrible but Manziel could make a huge difference in his first season. He has weapons all around him and fanbase that begs for inspiration. This is a fantastic marketing pick and good fit on offense.
By the way: The Cowboys would be a terrible fit for everyone involved.
