According to Sports Illustrated, Manziel was reportedly “very impressive” in interviews with the Jaguars and Raiders at the NFL scouting combine over the weekend. Both teams are in need of a franchise quarterback and will be in position to take Manziel in May’s draft. The Jaguars currently own the No. 3 overall pick while the Raiders have the No. 5 selection, although the Rams could be a potential trade partner for any team looking to jump up to No. 2.

"He did a really nice job in there. He was prepared for the interview, very prepared," Jaguars GM Dave Caldwell said. "We’ve found nothing that’s come across as a fatal flaw to us."

According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Jaguars and Raiders are both 100/1 long shots to win the 2015 Super Bowl, which are the worst odds in the NFL. The Bills are also 100/1 long shots, while the Browns, Vikings, Jets and Titans are all 66/1, respectively.

The 2014 NFL Draft will take place on Thursday, May 8 through Saturday, May 10.
