Chiefs like Johnny Manziel, also trying to trade back in 2014 NFL Draft

UPDATE: Johnny Manziel to the Browns

The idea of Johnny Manziel falling to the Kansas City Chiefs sounded crazy earlier today. But now? Not so much. According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the Chiefs do indeed like him but are also trying to trade back.

I hope the Chiefs take him if he's there. He was the quarterback I was sold on more than any other in this class. I did not expect him to be at No. 23. If Manziel was available and the Chiefs did not take him, my next vote would be for a trade back, so this draft is potentially shaping up nicely for the Chiefs.

The Chiefs would then have Alex Smith and Manziel, which is what we call a good problem. No other player could potentially have as big of an impact as Manziel. Key word: potentially. He could also be a bust.

I imagine this poll from last April would look a little different if the Chiefs do get a shot at Johnny Football.
