Fantasy Tip: Remember, the previous GM and head coach in Tampa were responsible for drafting Glennon. Smith and his new staff don't seem to be as upbeat on him. Keep that in mind if the Bucs draft another signal caller and Glennon struggles in his sophomore season.

I'm trying to show people I've grown up, and I've learned from my experiences. I feel like you're a stupid person if you continue to make the same wrong decisions." Manziel wants to be drafted by the Houston Texans No. 1 overall and said they'd be making a big mistake if they passed on him.

Former NFL media analyst and former Houston Texans and Washington Redskins personnel executive Charley Casserly is worried that Texas A&M QB Johnny Manziel lacks the pocket discipline to succeed in the NFL. Manziel often times tucked the ball and ran from the pocket when he had receivers open down the field. "When you watch tape on this guy, there are times I'm not sure what this guy sees. You've got guys wide open and, boom, he takes off and runs," Casserly said. "He may be a victim of his (own) ability to make plays running the football, so he doesn't stay in the pocket. I'd want to watch tape with him, what are you seeing, why are you running when you don't have to run?"

NFL Films producer Greg Cosell said he struggles to think that Texas A&M QB Johnny Manziel would be a surefire top-10 pick in most drafts after watching tape of his final two games of the 2013 season. "He played two games this year, LSU and Missouri, (and) if those were the first two games you put on and watched, you'd say he was almost undraftable," Cosell said. "He was so bad in those two games, that you'd struggle to figure out, can I even draft this guy?" Manziel also dealt with a thumb injury to close the season. Manziel projects to be a top-five pick in this year's NFL Draft.
