Johnny Manziel in vivid colour

Long before Johnny Manziel was drafted 22nd overall in the 2014 NFL Draft by the Cleveland Browns he was a big time media sensation. After all, at Texas A&M he was the first freshman to ever win the Heisman Trophy.

Johnny Football has dominated the Browns’ pre-season coverage to the extent that many players rightly feel that the always present spotlight is a bit of a distraction for the team.

While the Manziel enthusiasm is perhaps a bit premature for a player who has yet to take a single NFL snap, he is the most exciting thing to happen to Cleveland in quite some time (at least until LeBron rolled back into town) and so the early elation is understandable.

At any rate, it’s no surprise that Heather Rooney chose Johnny Football for her latest awe inspiring pencil-drawn tribute.
