Today’s Pro Football Talk on NBCSN focuses on the draft plans of the teams with the 11th, 12th, and 19th picks in the first round of the draft. Thanks to the Bills and the trade that allowed them to land Sammy Watkins last year, only two teams hold those three picks — the Vikings (11) and the Browns (12 and 19).
Some believe the Browns will consider moving up to get quarterback Marcus Mariota, despite moving up last year from No. 26 (the Trent Richardson pick) to No. 22 to get Johnny Manziel. With Manziel dealing with off-field issues that caused him to voluntary enter rehab, it’s unclear whether he can become the guy the Browns envisioned him to be a year ago.
Which brings us to Thursday’s PFT Planet poll question. Given his performance last year and the off-field challenges (which he deserves credit for confronting), will Manziel start a game in 2015?
Join us at 5:30 p.m. ET on NBCSN for the results, and for draft discussions about running backs and quarterbacks and the Washington Pro Day workout and the news of the day and plenty of other stuff.
Paul Burmeister, Kevin Gilbride, and Takeo Spikes will be in the Connecticut studio. I’ll be in my basement. Possibly wearing pants.
