Oakland Raiders GM Reggie McKenzie spoke to the media today and talked about a number of different things. He was asked about Texas A&M QB Johnny Manziel and McKenzie believes that he is a playmaker and that is the type of player that you shoot for.
"He's a playmaker. Whether its him or 1 of these other guys, when U can add a playmaker,that's what you shoot for." -McKenzie on @JManziel2

With the 5th pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, the Oakland Raiders select… Johnny Manziel?
With the 5th pick, the Raiders might have the opportunity to select Manziel and add him onto the roster. Manziel is an athlete and is a playmaker, but there are a lot of question marks that surround him. The biggest question is his size and his durability at the next level. For a quarterback that runs around as much as he does, he will be taking a beating at the NFL level. Can he hold up?
If the Oakland Raiders decide to select him, the team better invest on other weapons on offense and an offensive line to help him out. He won’t be able to run away from everyone… or will he?
