Everyone Has To Calm Down After Mel Kiper's Surprise Mock Draft Of Johnny Manziel To The Texans

Everyone Has To Calm Down After Mel Kiper's Surprise Mock Draft Of Johnny Manziel To The Texans

ESPN’s Mel Kiper made headlines yesterday by releasing his first mock draft of the season. In it he has the Houston Texans not taking Teddy Bridgewater or Blake Bortles.

Instead he has Houston taking controversial quarter back Johnny Manziel, even though most have Bridgewater and Bortles rated higher – including himself.

Of course people are freaking out and commenting that Kiper has no idea what he’s doing.

Everybody needs to relax. There is still a lot to do before teams make their picks, including the senior bowl, the combine and individual pro days.

Also keep this in mind – it is not his rankings of the players in the draft, that is what his Big Board is for.

This is truly a guess of how teams would draft right now based on team needs and what he has heard from his many of his contacts around the league.

His mock draft is going to change many times as the draft approaches and, like others, Manziel is sure to change spots a few times.
