Jaguars Star

Johnny Manziel Is 'Dope'

Johnny Manziel has a fan in Jacksonville ... tight end Marcedes Lewis ... who tells TMZ Sports he hopes the Jags draft him because the guy is "dope."

Lewis was out in L.A. this weekend -- and we asked if he hopes JAX spends its #3 draft pick on Johnny Football ... if he's still available at the time. 

"I like him. I think he's dope," Lewis said ... adding, "I think he's confident, somebody that's gonna bring some excitement to the locker room."

The Jags definitely need a QB -- question is ... will Houston or St. Louis snatch him up before the Jags get on board?

I THINK JOHNNY WILL DO WELL IN THE NFL, HOW WELL DEPENDS ON HOW MUCH HE STUDIES AND CAN TAKE THE SPEEED AND HITS OF GUYS WHO ALL ARE FAST AND ALL ARE STRONG. THE NFL ISNT COLLEGE SO, YOU HAVE TO GIVE JOHHNY TIME TO ADJUST. EVEN ANDREW LUCK, A SURE LOCK TO BE GREAT HAD ISSUES HIS 1ST TWO YEARS THOUGH HE WON AND RG3 ALSO HAD SOME BUMPS AND BRUISES. JOHNNY HAS SOMETHING ALL GREATS IN ALL ASPECTS IN LIFE HAVE, A JOY FOR WHAT HE DOES. I HOPE HE DOES WELL. LGNM

Johnny Football is a project at best. I would NOT take him in the first round. He could ride the bench for a season or two, and learn NFL style football. I think he could be a great QB in the right system, and with proper coaching. If you throw him in the fire, he would likely end up a bust.
