Johnny Manziel is predicted to be picked up in the first round of the 2014 NFL Draft. Most analysts are projecting that he will be picked up by the Minnesota Vikings as the No. 8 overall pick.
The Oakland Raiders have a 5th round pick in the first round and many expect the Silver and Black to go with a quarterback. The Raiders recently signed Matt Schaub from the Texans, but skepticism still lingers around the fact about Schaub’s ability to run the show for the Raiders.
Manziel’s visit in Oakland is raising speculation that the Raiders will most likely take a rookie QB with their first pick. It might not have to be Manziel, but the visit is definitely raising eyebrows.
It is a good thing that the Oakland Raiders are looking at a superb young quarterback like Johnny Manziel. The position was a huge problem for the Raiders last season, and it would be nice to see the club provide different options to come up with a solution to this problem.
