2014 NFL Draft: Browns select QB Johnny Manziel No. 22 overall

By Ryan Lewis Published: May 8, 2014

The Browns traded up again in the first round and made the biggest splash of the draft by selecting quarterback Johnny Manziell with the No. 22 overall pick. 

Manziel is the uber-popular former Heisman Trophy winning quarterback known for his ability to be a playmaker with his arm and legs. But he's also known for his antics off the field. 

The Browns moved up from No. 26 to No. 22 in a trade with the Philadelphia Eagles and gave up a third-round pick (No. 83 overall) to do it. 

So far tonight, the Browns have gotten their top-rated cornerback (Justin Gilbert), drafted "Johnny Football" and picked up an extra first-round pick next year (along with losing a third-rounder this year and adding another fourth in 2015).
