On Thursday night, the Browns were big winners during Round 1 of the 2014 NFL Draft. New GM Ray Farmer bounced all over the board, picking up cornerback Justin Gilbert, an extra 2015 first-round pick and finally quarterback Johnny Manziel. It probably wasn't a spur of the moment decision because Manziel fell. In fact, it almost definitely wasn't. And if you believe what owner Jimmy Haslam told ESPN's Sal Paolantonio, they made the move because a homeless man told Haslam to "draft Manziel." This would be the most Browns thing ever, quite frankly. "Here in Cleveland, every where I go people know me," Paolantonio reported Haslam said.
