Cleveland Browns Select Johnny Manziel in NFL Draft First Round

COLLEGE STATION, Texas – Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel was selected by the Cleveland Browns with the 22nd pick of the first round of the 2014 NFL Draft Thursday night.

Manziel, from Kerrville, Texas, leaves Texas A&M as one of the most decorated and exciting players in college football history. The first-ever freshman to win the Heisman Trophy in 2012, Manziel was a two-time first-team All-Southeastern Conference pick at quarterback. He was the college player of the year in 2012 and he also won the Davey O’Brien Award and the Manning Award.

As a sophomore, Manziel was a finalist for the Heisman Trophy and finished fifth in the voting. He was also a finalist for the O’Brien, Walter Camp Player of the Year, Maxwell Award, Manning Award, Hornung Award and the Earl Campbell Tyler Rose Award.

In 2013, Manziel set school records for passing yards, passing touchdowns and total offense in 2013 as he generated 4,873 total yards, while completing 300-of-429 passes for 4,114 yards and 37 touchdowns and rushing for 759 yards and nine touchdowns. His completion percentage of 69.9 was also a school record.

Manziel is the only player in NCAA Football Bowl Subdivision history to gain 5,000 total yards in a season, while rushing for 1,000 yards (5,116/1,410 in 2012). Also in 2012, he became the fifth FBS players to pass for 3,000 and rush for 1,000 in a season, and he became the fifth player to rush and pass for 20 or more touchdowns in a single season. Manziel became the first sophomore in FBS history to pass for 7,000 yards and rush for 2,000 yards in 2013.
