After it seemed like there was a possibility he would fall out of the first round of the 2014 NFL Draft, former Texas A&M star Johnny Manziel had plenty of reasons to celebrate on Thursday after he was selected by the Cleveland Browns at No. 22. In fact, Manziel spent part of his post-draft partying with the famous rapper and die-hard sports fan Drake–which shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone.
Manziel and Odell Beckham were lucky enough to party with Drake just hours after their NFL fate was decided on Thursday night as both players were lucky enough to be selected in the first round. While Johnny Football will look to be the quarterback Cleveland fans have spent years praying for, Beckham finds himself in a nice situation to catch passes from Eli Manning next season after being selected by the New York Giants at No. 12.
Football fans will certainly be excited to see what both players bring to the table during their rookie seasons. However, it’s safe to say there will be more attention focused on Manziel and Beckham considering all of the criticism the star quarterback received while he was at Texas A&M for his party habits.
Sure, Manziel has the right to do whatever he wants as an individual, but let’s just hope he keeps the partying in Cleveland under control so he can focus on what he’s going to be paid to do–which is play football for the Browns.
