Btw, I will be interested to hear your explanation of how Manziel is a better prospect than Wilson.
He certainly has a higher potential ceiling than Wilson. Everything Dutchrudder said about Wilson is true. Overrated. He's not exactly Trent Dilfer, but he is a not risky QB who will make mistakes for your team. And on a run and defense oriented team that's absolutely fine. We saw them ride that to a ring this year. Can't argue with Super Bowls.

Manziel is a playmaker, no question about it. He is however a massive risk taker. The question is, can he translate that playmaking ability into the NFL without committing turnovers all the time? If he can, championship. If he can't, bust. All it takes is one team to think the boom factor is worth the bust risk and take him in the top ten.

At this point Cleveland is looking for a miracle and a savior, so I can't think of a more fitting pick than Manziel.
