I’m far from being on the Johnny Manziel bandwagon in support of the Texas A&M quarterback for being the No. 1 overall pick. In fact, my list for the No. 1 pick is down to three players: Bortles, Jadeveon Clowney or Teddy Bridgewater.

The longer the offseason goes, the more I’m leaning towards Bortles. I’m still not 100-percent convinced, but for this week, he is who I’m going to select.

We still have 96 days until the draft, so eventually I’ll figure it out.
