So pleased with this. Johnny Manziel, one the most dynamic exciting prospects in years, gets his shot in Cleveland. He'll have the benefit of a strong defense and legitimate weapons all around him on offense--two pro-bowl lineman to protect him, two pro-bowl receiving targets to throw to, and solid role players all around.
Talk about drama...this draft was the epitome for Browns fans. When the news broke of a trade down from pick 4, thousands of Browns fans must have went through the ceiling as the frustration for a field general intensified. Considering they were moving behind Oakland, Minnesota, and Tampa, all teams that may have taken one of the top QB prospects available, it was little surprise when defense was the pick at 9. 13 picks later, the thought of another team leapfrogging the Browns to get a QB spurred a decision to forfeit a 3rd round pick and put an end to the QB waiting game.
Manziel brings spunk, heart, desire, and confidence. It's going to be fun to watch him work his magic on the field. The defense seems to be coming together now as well with 3 capable starting CB's. Lookout AFC North. Sweeps of the Browns are a thing of the past. Lookout AFC. Facing this defense will be like running into a wall. And lookout NFL. Cleveland is headed toward the top.
