Word's spreading among media here that Manziel is going to Jacksonville at 3.— John McClain (@McClain_on_NFL) May 7, 2014
Nobody seems to have a clue what the Jacksonville Jaguars are going to do with the No. 3 overall pick, but there are more and more rumors popping up nearly 24 hours before the draft that Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel won't make it past the Jaguars with the No. 3 overall pick.
Why this makes sense
The Jaguars desperately need a quarterback in the 2014 NFL Draft, so it makes sense they're being linked with one regardless of who it is. The Jaguars could also use an injection of play-making ability and excitement, which is what Manziel brings in spades. While I'm confident the Jaguars will not draft him for that, it's hard to deny it plays some part in the selection if it's the case.
Why this doesn't make sense
Through the whole draft process it's been determined the Jaguars were going to pass on a quarterback with the No. 3 overall pick, even though Manziel's momentum has seemed to catch fire this past week. This could also be a leak in an effort to get teams to move up in the draft
Hey, that's pretty high right? Right. I think this has a decent chance of being true. While most local and national media have backed off the Jaguars picking a quarterback at No. 3 overall, I've never been ready to completely rule it out, especially with where the Jaguars second-round pick falls. If you like a guy, pick him at 3.
Jaguars general manager Dave Caldwell also dropped a nugget that he felt Manziel was the most NFL ready quarterback of the flawed bunch and that they would not have to change their offense much for him to fit.
