SEC: Finally, the Johnny Football speculation will end


SEC links for Thursday:

- As the NFL begins its annual draft Thursday night — finally — Auburn could have its biggest draft class in 23 years. Offensive tackle Greg Robinson has been projected to go as high as No. 2 overall.

- Mark Bradley of the AJC says that Texas A&M’s Johnny Manziel was a great college player, but he’s a bad NFL risk. There is sure a lot of talk that Johnny Football could end up in Dallas.

- Bill Livingston of the Cleveland Plain-Dealer writes that the Browns should take Manziel. “The reason I think the Browns might take Manziel is actually the impetuous owner I’ve often criticized, Hotspur Haslam himself. When it comes to meddlesome owners – think the human moving van, Art Modell – I’m usually against them. But the Browns have been too conservative (and/or clueless) by half in their past picks since the franchise was restored.”

- One way or another, the speculation on Manziel will finally end Thursday night.

- Missouri could have bumper crop in this year’s NFL Draft. The Tigers have four players who are near-locks to hear their names called by NFL teams.

- Former LSU quarterback Zach Mettenberger has made up for lost time after injury as he prepares for tonight’s draft.

- Looking at where Odell Beckham Jr. and other former LSU players might land in the draft.

- Florida football is excited about tailback Adam Lane, who redshirted last season but figures prominently in the Gators’ plans for this fall.

- Despite a rough first season, Ole Miss women’s basketball coach Matt Insell is happy with the direction of his program. Insell is a former UK assistant.
