ESPN analyst Mel Kiper Jr. is fluent in the language of the NFL Draft. He's been speaking it since the 1970s. Kiper shared another lesson on all-things draft with an hour-long conference call on Thursday. Perhaps the most notable takeaway from the call was Kiper's opinion on Texas A&M's popular quarterback Johnny Manziel. The 2012 Heisman Trophy-winning player known as "Johnny Football," appears to be the top quarterback in this year's draft class. "When you talk to people in the league, he’s kind of the consensus No. 1 quarterback," said Kiper, who sees several teams being interested in taking the play-making quarterback in the top 10. "He is in the mix for Houston, Jacksonville, Cleveland, Oakland, Minnesota – all those teams need quarterbacks," Kiper said.
