It's hardly a surprise to see the news that Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel will be foregoing his remaining collegiate eligibility to enter the 2014 NFL draft. From his eventful 2013 offseason (including an NCAA investigation into whether he was paid to sign autographs, which would have been a violation of NCAA rules, that turned up no wrongdoing but still resulted in a one-half game suspension against Rice) to his comments following the conclusion of the season, there seemed to be little doubt that Manziel was ready to begin his pro career. And perhaps most importantly, he's shown enough improvement in his game this season to improve his draft stock.
He's poised to become the "face" of the 2014 draft, if you will, because of the differing opinions about him as a player and the interest that surrounds him off the field. How high will he go in the draft? Let's take a look.
