Throughout the entire NFL Draft process, 3 quarerbacks have been rumored to be No. 1 overall picks at some point. Johnny Manziel, Blake Bortles and Teddy Bridgewater have plenty of hype around them, even if the Houston Texans decide to pass. With the draft about a week away, where will these guys have a chance to put up fantasy football numbers in the fall? Here are the final predictions.
Johnny Manziel – Cleveland Browns
With Brian Hoyer looking solid so far, Cleveland might be willing to take a chance on Manziel with the No. 4 pick. He is a risky pick, but the reward could be great. He is a hybrid quarterback, capable of creating plays with his arm or his legs. Cleveland has been searching for years to land a franchise quarterback, and Manziel might just be that guy. He’s a bit undersized, but his production at the college level is hard to argue.
Blake Bortles – Minnesota Vikings
Minnesota seems to be in love with the former UCF standout. They have the No. 8 pick in the draft, and they initially thought they would need to move up in order to grab him. He would have a very good shot at beating out Matt Cassel and Christian Ponder to start on Week 1. That would make him the safest pickup in fantasy football among rookie quarterbacks.
Teddy Bridgewater – Houston Texans
For some reason, Bridgewater continues to fall in mock drafts. In fact, many believe Derek Carr out of Fresno State will now go before him. If he falls completely out of the first round, it would be crazy to not think that the Houston Texans will consider him with the first pick in the second round. It would be pretty remarkable for the Texans to grab a former projected No. 1 overall pick in the 2nd round, but that just shows how his stock has plummeted. He figures to be a safe pick in the NFL, but the ceiling isn’t thought of as too high.

A survey by Forbes lists Michael Vick as the most “disliked” NFL player. Doggone. And is any coincidence that 3 of the top 10 are former USC players? Didn’t think so.

The violent hits continue on a weekly basis in the NFL. As Chargers’ wide receiver Malcom Floyd said to a group of reporters Monday, “It’s part of the game.”
Unfortunately, it is. Football is a game of violence. Still, hits like the 1 Washington’s Brandon Meriweather delivered on Green Bay’s James Starks shouldn’t be tolerated. Anytime a player launches himself into another 1 helmet 1st he should pay for the repercussions, whether by suspension or a big hit to his wallet. For Meriweather and his stupidity, the blow cost him with his own concussion and he will be out for Week 3.
Writers Erik Brady and Gary Mihoces deliver a thoughtful piece. I make some very small contributions with a few quotes from Floyd.
