      NFL draft    Best fits.... Johnny Manziel By Brent Sobleski    USA Today SportsApril 14  2014fit_zps7596c14d.jpgNew Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees owes plenty of his success to the play-calling of Saints head coach Sean Payton. (Derick E. Hingle – USA TODAY Sports) Location and situation are vital components to any player’s success. The right system, coach and opportunity can dictate a player’s career as much as his natural athletic ability and talent. It’s why the situation in which a quarterback in placed is vitally important. And that’s even more applicable for May’s draft class. As it’s often been said, there isn’t an Andrew Luck-level prospect in this year’s class. Translation: There isn’t a non-system specific quarterback available. These types of prospects are considered legitimate franchise talents. With each of the top prospects available in May, they each have their strengths and weaknesses. How a team builds around these talents will be very important in their maturation as professional quarterbacks. Some teams are better fits for these quarterbacks than others. We’ll look at each of the top quarterbacks prospects and their ideal landing spot starting with “Johnny Football.” Johnny Manziel fit1_zps8f6a9b6c.jpgJohnny Manziel’s pro day was an opportunity to market the quarterback. (Patric Schneider – Associated Press) BEST FIT: Cleveland Browns The Browns didn’t attend Manziel’s pro day. Yet, few teams offer Manziel exactly what he needs in an offense.  Manziel’s biggest weakness as a prospect is inconsistency as a pocket passer. Manziel isn’t advanced in his ability to read defenses, the footwork involved or his progressions through the team’s patterns. Where the Browns can compensate is by running the football and not relying predominantly on Manziel to win games as a passer.  Over the past two seasons as the Washington Redskins offensive coordinator, Kyle Shanahan orchestrated a pair of Top 5 rushing offenses. The ability to run the football successfully can take the pressure off of any young signal caller. Manziel’s primary strength is his ability to improvise. He is an athletic quarterback that is at his best when on the move. Shanahan’s sytem utilizes plenty of bootleg action and moves the pocket for its quarterbacks, which will allow Manziel to take advantage of his natural tendencies to break the pocket and make plays. Finally, Shanahan already proved he can develop a system that caters to a unique talent behind center. When the Redskins drafted Robert Griffin III, Shanahan implemented aspects of Baylor’s offense into his. It gave Griffin a comfort level within the offense without having to completely digest and conform to a complete NFL system. It should also be noted that the offense Texas A&M ran with Manziel has similar roots to the one RG3 ran at Baylor. Secondary fits: Jacksonville Jaguars, Minnesota Vikings, Tampa Bay Buccaneers

      The Browns not going to his pro day probably means they are taking him .Why else would you not even do Due Diligence ?? They want people to think they aren’t interested so anyone who likes him doesn’t start talking with the Rams.

      So which is it? Do you think they'll take Carr over Manziel or do you think they'll do something stupid? :)
