Johnny Manziel To The Buccaneers In Round One?

Johnny Manziel

The Bucs will give heavy consideration to selecting Johnny Manziel in next week’s draft, unless of course he is picked before them, Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Manziel impressed team officials during his visit to One Buc Place this month, coach Lovie Smith has raved about the workout he attended at Texas A&M and the off-field behavior of the enigmatic quarterback apparently is not a concern.

“He had a very impressive interview,” general manager Jason Licht said of Manziel on Tuesday. “We had a great day with him. Lovie and him have Texas roots. We enjoyed every minute that he was here. Sharp guy.”

Licht said he is confident Smith and his staff could handle whatever challenges come along with Manziel, who has had to answer questions about his thirst for celebrity and the nightlife after winning the Heisman Trophy as a freshman.

“He’s the Heisman Trophy winner,” Licht said. “A lot of the situations he’s been in you can’t blame him for. If I were young and had a Heisman Trophy on my mantel, I’d probably be in a lot more trouble than the next guy. So I think we’re just going to make the best football decision, what’s best for our football team and I think Lovie and his staff can handle the rest of it.”
