Pick Manziel -if he is a bust - it will take years to undo that.
It really depends on how the rest of that draft turns out. If another QB becomes the guy we were looking for, it's a fail. Especially if it's Bridgewater & Bortles. We had our pick, could have had any one we wanted & passed on the franchise QB.
Then it also depends on how the rest of the players pan out. Very few players in the 2002 draft are worth talking about, 12 years later. Julius Peppers name comes up a lot because of that. The 2006 draft was also pretty bare, but we got one of the better players in that draft (& I doubt anyone will be talking about any of them in 2018).
Whoever we draft, we've got to be extremely honest about who he is & what he can & can't do. Then do our best to ensure he succeeds.
