On the same day he got drafted by the San Diego Padres, Johnny Manziel hit one million followers on Twitter.

The former Texas A&M quarterback, who was drafted by the Cleveland Browns at No. 22 last month, joins nine active NFL players who also have reached the milestone.

That list includes Detroit Lions running back Reggie Bush, who leads all active NFL players with 2.9 million followers, and three quarterbacks, including New Orleans' Drew Brees, the Washington Redskins' Robert Griffin III, and Aaron Rodgers of the Green Bay Packers.

Twenty-one players might have been picked before Manziel, but he clearly has been the marketing star of the draft. His Twitter following has grown by more than 25 percent, or 200,000 followers, since the day he was drafted on May 8, and he has helped the Browns sell thousands of season tickets and thousands more T-shirts and jerseys.
