2014 NFL mock draft: QB Johnny Manziel to Cleveland Browns with 4th pick

With the 4th pick in the 2014 Arrowhead Pride mock draft, Cleveland Browns GM Nigerian Nightmare selects ...

I think we can all agree that we are a teensy bit sick of Cleveland and their gosh darn fans. Look, we get it! You are a team who constantly wins big games and has annual success, but that doesn't mean that you get to go and call yourself "America's Team"! It's pompous and ridiculous, even for a franchise as adored by the media as they are.

But let's be real here, they don't have very many holes. So they might as well add some depth behind the great Brian Hoyer and everyone's favorite backup, Alex Tanney. So I'm gonna go with....

Texas A&M QB Johnny Manziel

Look, I know what you're thinking. "NN, you can't keep solving every problem with a quarterback! No one has ever won a game by throwing some damn ball in the air! How's about you stop living in such a fairytale world where quarterbacks are important?"

But level with me, this guy can move. He ran for over 1,400 yards in 2012 and about 760 yards in 2013. And in Kyle Shanahan's zone-blocking scheme that has been top five in rushing the last two years, this guy could really play a role in the run game ala RG III.

Combine that with Ben Tate and a better offensive line in Cleveland than he had in Washington and Cleveland's run game is looking dangerous. Manziel can pass or whatever too, I guess.
