Johnny Football is coming to Cleveland. The Browns made Johnny Manziel, the Texas A&M quarterback, the 22nd overall pick of NFL Draft 2014, bringing instant excitement and attention to a team that hasn't had much of either over the last decade.

The Browns had passed on Manziel once already earlier in the night, but they didn't do it twice.

Earlier in the night, the Browns - after trading down from No. 4 to No. 9, and then trading up from No. 9 to No. 8 - selected Oklahoma State cornerback Justin Gilbert.

The Browns had owned the 26th pick, but moved up to 22 by dealing with Philadelphia right before the Eagles picked. The Browns gave Philadelphia their No. 26 pick, and a third-rounder Friday night, No. 83 overall.

"To be here feels right," Manziel said after being chosen. "Dawg Pound, here we come. I'm going to pour my heart out for this team.

"I truly believe Cleveland was supposed to be where I ended up."

Manziel measured just under 6 feet tall at the NFL Combine and weighs about 207 pounds. He ran a time of 4.66 seconds in the 40-yard dash at the NFL Combine.

Manziel puts the national spotlight on the Browns and Cleveland. Question is, will his scrambling, improvising Houdini act translate well to the NFL?

His former college offensive coordinator Jake Spavital told he thinks Manziel will excel in a pass-oriented, uptempo scheme similar to the one he ran at Texas A&M.

"He's one of the most entertaining kids I've ever seen play the game,'' Spavital told "He's one of the most competitive guys I've ever coached, but he's also one of the most emotional guys I've ever coached. Hopefully I'll get another guy like that someday, but he's very rare and unique.''

Spavital arrived on the scene at Texas A&M after Johnny Manziel had already morphed into Johnny Football. He had already won the Heisman Trophy as a freshman, already needed a police escort back him to his house and already had a gaggle of handlers managing all aspects of his life.

"All I had to do was focus on football,'' said Spavital, who also coached Brandon Weeden at Oklahoma State and Geno Smith at West Virginia.

"Johnny never gave me any problems. I had a great time coaching him.''

Spavital witnessed so much magic from the second-year starter in 2013 that he has no doubt Manziel will succeed in the NFL -- in the right situation.
