With the No. 22 pick in the NFL draft, the Cleveland Browns select Texas A&M QB Johnny Manziel.
The Browns go from being chastised by many of their fans for passing on Johnny Football after trading down to the 8th pick only to look like geniuses having landed this ballsy QB 14 picks later. The question is will Manziel carry his swagger to possibly a less than desirable landing spot in Cleveland? His post-pick interview suggests so, and in case you missed my weekly tweets about my love for Manziel's tenacity and swagger I'll sum it up by saying that this kid has the talent and over-the-top type of confidence to do whatever he needs to win and I'm sure all Browns fans can attest that is something this organization needs. The jury is out whether he will pan out, but so long as he can stay healthy it is tough to bet against this kid who now has the All-World Josh Gordon to pass to.ANALYST: Michael Pichan
The 76ers have waived JaVale McGee.
McGee, oddly enough, came out and said he wanted to be a "mentor" to the young players on the Sixers after arriving at the trade deadline. Just a few weeks late, McGee will be packing his bags, hoping he picks up with a contender. The seven-footer reportedly will not have to give back any money in a buyout, and is owed the remainder of his $11.2 million contract, along with $12 million next year. Analysis: Spencer Silva
