    Teddy Bridgewater isn’t the only 2014 quarterback prospect who received a dire prognosis from former Buccaneers G.M. Mark Dominik on Friday. Via Rotowold, Dominik also had some bad news for Johnny Manziel.

    Dominik, who now works for ESPN, said on the air that Manziel “will fall a little more than people think” in the draft.

    This assessment presumes that a consensus currently exists as to where Manziel will go. It doesn’t.

    As time passes, it seems less likely the Texans would use the first overall pick in the draft on Manziel. After that, it gets fuzzy. Could a team spring in front of Jacksonville (No. 3) and Cleveland (No. 4) to get Manziel with the No. 2 selection currently held by the Rams? Possibly.

    If he gets past No. 2 (and he likely will), the hot spots become Jacksonville, Cleveland, Oakland at No. 5 (very unlikely), Tampa Bay at No. 7, Minnesota at No. 8, and Tennessee at No. 11.

    The Cowboys at No. 16 could be very intrigued by Manziel. Perhaps sufficiently intrigued to trade up.

    If Manziel makes it past the first half of the round, the question then becomes whether a team from round two would trade up in front of the Browns at No. 26, if the Browns don’t take a quarterback at No. 4. After the Browns, it then becomes possible if not probable that a team springs into the first round, where a four-year contract and a one-year option would apply.

    We’d be shocked if Manziel isn’t taken in the first round. His actual placement in round one, whatever it may be, won’t be a surprise.

    It's "surprising" that he'll fall to picks 7-11 or then 26ish?

    ... I fully expect him to fall to at least the very back of the 1st round. Hell, shouldn't be drafted at all, but some team will take a dumb chance.

    Yeah, there is no way the Jags, Browns, and Raiders all pass on him.

    It is Tim Tebow all over again. You know someone is going to fall for the fool's gold. The only difference being JM is actually a QB.

    I don't think he will make it out of the top 10 picks.

    Edit:

    After reading, if the Cowboys traded up to our spot to get him that would be fantastic.

    If we do trade down I think it's the best scenario for us this season. Move down in 1st and pick up an additional 2nd rounder would be amazing.

    I expect Manziel to get the Geno Smith treatment and not even get drafted in the first round.

    Based on Duece Wayne's track record we absolutely must draft Manziel at 11 if he is there. He had christian Ponder going to the hall of fame.
