This week’s FanSided network mock draft comes courtesy of NFL Mocks, your draft news headquarters (which you should bookmark now so you can go there with a single click and get your draft news). Who do we have the Vikings taking this week?
#8 – Minnesota Vikings – Johnny Manziel – QB – Texas A&M
Yes, it’s a controversial pick but also one that makes sense. Johnny Manziel is a top ten quarterback despite questions of his height and arm strength. The Minnesota Vikings need a difference-maker at that position. Nobody makes plays quite like he does.
Johnny Football is one of the more divisive figures in all of sports these days. Either you love him or you hate him. Lots of you will love this pick and lots of you will hate it.
One thing is for certain: John Football moves the needle. He gets people talking. He generates the buzzy buzz.
Whether he can produce on the field in the NFL, well that’s another matter. Some think his game won’t translate to the NFL. Others believe his talent is so overwhelming, he would force the NFL to adapt to him.
And we won’t know who’s right FOR YEARS.
