Manziel to Browns, Bortles to Jags, more NFL draft possibilities we love

Johnny Manziel could give Josh Gordon and the rest of the Browns' offense a boost.

Matching Bortles with Shorts is a good move by the Jaguars, as they need to start building a passing game into an asset rather than a liability. The young quarterback out of UCF has drawn comparisons to players like Andrew Luck and Ben Roethlisberger, which are obviously two very optimistic comparisons. But even if he's a shade like those guys, the Jaguars -- and Shorts -- will be more than happy.

As a smallish receiver, Cooks will have to bring some attitude and nastiness to the NFL, much like other small NFL receivers like Steve Smith and Lance Moore. He's also going to need some guts to go over the middle if he's playing in the slot, much like Wes Welker or Danny Amendola.
