Manziel runs official 40 of 4.56

According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the over/under for Manziel's forty was set at 4.49, meaning that bettors cashed in on the over. Manziel's 10 yard splits were also 1.59 and 1.60 seconds, and he measured in at just under six feet tall. He won't participate in the throwing portions of the combine.

Four of the top 5 teams in this year's draft all need a quarterback. The Texans are likely done with Matt Schaub following a horrendous year that saw them go from AFC South champions to worst record in the league in just one season. The Rams don't need a quarterback after repeatedly committing to Sam Bradford, but the Jaguars, Browns and Raiders all need a franchise signal-caller.

Manziel might make sense for Houston based on their need for a quarterback and the fact that he played in-state at Texas A&M, although the Texans have been linked to Central Florida quarterback Blake Bortles. The Jaguars haven't been linked to any quarterback specifically, but Manziel, Bortles or Teddy Bridgewater all make sense for a franchise that has been searching for a franchise signal-caller since David Garrard last brought the team to the playoffs. Cleveland and Oakland could certainly be viable options for Manziel as well.

The first round of the 2014 NFL Draft takes place on May 8th and the event runs through May 10th. It'll take place at Radio City Music Hall in New York City and will be broadcast on both ESPN and the NFL Network.
