    Rumor or Truth? Jaguars Interested in Manziel at #3!

    Wow. Talk about a brilliant smokescreen by Fisher and Snead. Yesterday Jay Glazer said "The Browns will not be taking Manziel at #4"... Now I think it's safe to say that means if Manziel slips to #3 he is going to be a Jaguar, not that the Browns don't want him. This was brilliantly played out by Fisher and Snead because now either the Jaguars will swap picks with us and nail down Johnny (not really likely) or the Browns will have to hop over the Jaguars pick (very likely) and we will drop down to #4 probably for a 2nd round pick.

    This ensures that we still land one of Jake Matthews, Greg Robinson, Khalil Mack, Jadeveon Clowney, or Sammy Watkins (Big 5) and yet we garner at least an extra 2nd round pick, potentially even more.

    Well done Les and Jeff, well done. I can't WAIT until tomorrow! Happy Draft day Eve!

    This is all coming from rarely-wrong beat writer John McClain on twitter. He says:

    "Word's spreading among media here that Manziel is going to Jacksonville at 3."

    A day before the draft, everything's worth taking with more than a grain of salt. But this does look promising for a team looking to deal-up with the Rams and leapfrom Jacksonville.

    With this said, let's not jump the gun, here.

    Concurrently, the Jags could well be trying to pressure the Rams into picking Manzeil at 2 if he really is their guy, knowing that they then would have the pick of the skill position/OT litter.

    True, nothing is set in stone, but it was one hell of a setup IMO. We'll see if the Browns like Manziel enough to hop infront of JAX and nab him, which I sure hope they are. We'd benefit because we'd still land an elite prospect and we'd get extra picks.

    Who knows who's really interest in what though. People are saying the Browns want G-Rob, but we'll see tomorrow I guess. This smokes THICK!

    Here's what's really happening.

    Houston is taking Clowney.

    Jacksonville wants Mack.

    The Rams floated the rumors about taking Manziel so that some team (probably Cleveland) would trade up to No. 2.

    Cleveland isn't buying the smokscreen.

    The Rams called Jacksonville and said "if we're stuck at No. 2, we're taking Mack. However, if you float a rumor that you're taking Manziel, then Cleveland will have to trade up to No. 2, and Mack will be there at No. 3."

    Jacksonville bought it, and is doing the Rams' dirty work for them.

    To make this official you just need to stamped it with...

    Here's what's happening now, sources tell me that Houston is taking Clowney.

    According to an insider Jacksonville wants Mack.

    The St. Louis Post keeps hearing that the Rams floated the rumors about taking Manziel so that some team (probably Cleveland) would trade up to No. 2.

    ESPN's Adam Caplan stated on SportsCenter Wednesday morning that Cleveland isn't buying the smokscreen.

    ESPN's Ed Werder reported on SportsCenter Wednesday that the Rams called Jacksonville and said "if we're stuck at No. 2, we're taking Mack. However, if you float a rumor that you're taking Manziel, then Cleveland will have to trade up to No. 2, and Mack will be there at No. 3."

    I'm told by an unconfirmed source that Jacksonville bought it, and is doing the Rams' dirty work for them.
