NFL Draft Rumors: Johnny Manziel not a fit for Houston Texans?

Johnny Manziel basically warned the Houston Texans not to pass on him with the No. 1 overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, claiming that would be the “worst decision they’ve ever made.” But more and more evidence suggests the Texas A&M star simply isn’t a fit for the Texans and he’ll likely wind up elsewhere on draft day.

Johnny ManzielOn Thursday Scouts Inc.’s Todd McShay confirmed he has been hearing that Manziel isn’t a fit for the Texans and took the step of sending Blake Bortles to Houston in his most recent mock draft. McShay went as far as using the phrase “crossing him off the list” when describing the scenario of Manziel going to the Texans.

McShay is basing his analysis on what he has been hearing and what he heard at the NFL Combine, not a personal evaluation of Manziel’s talent.

McShay’s report is in line with what I’ve been hearing. Yes, Manziel is a local boy who would probably be a very popular pick among Houston’s fans. But he may not be what new head coach Bill O’Brien is looking for at quarterback and his personality may not be one the team’s front office is willing to deal with.

Manziel has his defenders who think he’s by far the best player in this year’s draft. I am not one of them. I have rarely had more fun watching a player in college, but if you’re an NFL executive are you willing to take a chance on him? Has he grown up enough to be the face of an NFL franchise? Will he cut out the partying? And will his playmaking ability make up for his lack of size?

Those are all serious questions that need to be answered and we simply won’t know how Manziel will behave until he’s actually in the league. Whoever selects him on draft day will be taking a big gamble. Yes, it’s one that might pay off, but there’s also a good chance it won’t.

The Texans don’t appear interested in taking a chance on Manziel.
