This is seriously like the movie “Draft Day,” as the Cleveland Browns have made some fancy and strategic draft moves and trades. Their latest, a trade with Philadelphia to get the 22nd pick. And with that pick, the Browns make a young quarterback’s day and dream come true, and that quarterback is Johnny Manziel from Texas A&M.
Cleveland has been in dire need of a quarterback and they played their cards right and snagged Manziel, who probably was beginning to wonder if he’d slip to the ever-so-dreaded second round. Earlier this evening, the Dallas Cowboys passed up Manziel along with Jacksonville, St. Louis, Oakland and Minnesota.
Manziel will surely boost the Browns offense. Adding him to the mix with Josh Gordan, Jordan Cameron and Ben Tate could make the Browns offense explosive at some point in the not-so-distant future.

Even Manziel’s new teammates are welcoming him.

Bill Bellichick is probably pissed!
