As Johnny Manziel prepares for the upcoming NFL draft, he made it clear where he wants to be selected.
"I want them to say absolutely, without a doubt, with 100 percent certainty, that I'm who they want," Manziel said. "I want everybody from the janitor at Reliant Stadium to the front office executive assistant all the way up to (owner) Bob McNair to say, 'This kid is 100 percent, can't miss. This is who we want being the face of our program. We want the Texas kid staying in Texas and leading the Texans.'"
Manziel electrified onlookers with his ability to throw and pass in Texas A&M's offense the past two seasons.
He also has a confidence in his ability, something that carried over to the field quite a bit. It's that confidence in his own self that leads him to believe that the Texans would be making a big mistake if they pass on him with the first pick.
If Houston did choose someone else, then hypothetically he wouldn't mind falling to Jacksonville, just so he could get revenge.
"It would be the worst decision they've ever made," Manziel told the Chronicle. "I'd be in the same division playing against them twice a year. Sorry, but you just turned that chip on my shoulder from a Frito into a Dorito."
