Todd McShay has come out with his third draft of his 2014 NFL Mock Draft this morning (Insider, $). While many things can change between now and May, McShay and Mel Kiper Jr. give interesting looks at who they think the teams should take and why. We will take a look at the Cleveland Browns two First Round picks nad how McShay sees Ray Farmer and Mike Pettine working together to improve the team.
4 – Johnny Manziel Cleveland Browns (4-12) COLLEGE: Texas A&M AGE: 21 HT: 5-11 WT: 207 POS: QB
Analysis: The mantra for the Browns is the same as for the Jaguars: take the best available QB. They’ll be pulling hard for Clowney and Robinson to be among the top three picks so they have some choices here, but in this scenario the only guy among our first round-worthy QBs is Manziel. I don’t know if he’s an ideal fit or if he’d be the Browns’ first choice, but I’m not worried about his size or arm strength as it relates to playing in cold weather. If I had to rank the top three QBs in terms of arm strength, I’d go Bridgewater, Manziel and Bortles, without much difference among the three. And Manziel’s 9 7/8-inch hands are plenty big enough to grip the ball in cold weather.
