In Rams rumors today, speculation is starting to pop up that the St. Louis Rams are interesting in drafting Johnny Manziel with the second overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft.
Via NFLTradeRumors.co, NFL Network's Daniel Jeremiah stated that there is talk around the NFL that the Rams could pick Manziel and groom him to be their next franchise quarterback:
“Take what you will with this, but this is out there,” Jeremiah stated. “(NFL personnel) are saying there’s legitimate interest between the Rams and Johnny Manziel. There’s at least buzz in personnel circles saying do not rule out Johnny Manziel to St. Louis.”
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch recently stated that the Rams have their eyes on top-tier quarterbacks in this year's draft class. Manziel could potentially be on the top of that list.
Daniel Jeremiah believes that "it's a real possibility" that the Rams could lock up Johnny Football, perhaps placing him into immediate competition with Sam Bradford for the starting role.
