Report: Buccaneers won’t select Johnny Manziel at No. 7


One of the teams most often linked to Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel in pre-draft speculation reportedly will not take him at its current spot in the top 10 on Thursday night.

According to Jay Glazer of Fox, the Buccaneers “won’t” pick Manziel with the No. 7 overall selection.

The Buccaneers signed Josh McCown in free agency and have tabbed him as their starter. Mike Glennon, whom the Buccaneers selected in Round Three in the 2013 draft, is also on the depth chart.

Glazer’s report only specifies that Manziel isn’t at play at No. 7 for Tampa Bay. It’s another piece of intelligence in trying to solve one of the draft’s riddles — the matter of where Manziel takes his talents next.
