‘Johnny Football’ Becomes ‘Johnny Cleveland’

Johnny Football
Of the 32 players selected in the first round of the NFL Draft, at New York’s Radio City Music Hall on Thursday, none received more attention than former Texas A&M quarterback, Johnny “Johnny Football” Manziel (PeekYou profile here).

The arguable biggest star of the draft, defensive end Jadeveon Clowney (PeekYou profile here) of South Carolina, went first and fastest to Texas; leaving all eyes on Manziel.

Manziel was picked up — not second, third, or seventh, but twenty-second, at 10:40pm Thursday night — by the Cleveland Browns. In addressing the over 2 1/2 hours it took Johnny to finally get drafted. he said, “It was a little bit of anxiety.” Adding, “But at the same time, my lifelong goal has been fulfilled. It wasn’t about the wait. It was about being here with my family.”
