Johnny Manziel graces the cover of Sports Illustrated this week

Is the cover jinx going to hit Johnny Manziel's draft status?

The 2012 Heisman Trophy-winner is on the cover of this week's Sports Illustrated. It teases Peter King's cover story about the conflicting opinions surrounding Manziel. Just look at the quotes around him for an example of them.

He's also wearing Under Armour gear prominently in the picture. After wearing Adidas duds for two years at Texas A&M, Manziel signed with Under Armour after he entered the draft.

Manziel has been one of the most scrutinized prospects in recent memory. The attention he garnered in two flashy and productive years at A&M has carried over to the draft process. Without games to talk about, the easiest way to fill time is to talk about Manziel and Jadeveon Clowney.

Where will Manziel go in the draft? Most projections have him anywhere from the top five to the mid-20s.

We are disappointed Drake didn't get a chance to make the cover with Manziel. How could they break up the duo? Drake may still be busy hanging out with Kentucky.
