JOHNNY LOGO: NFL.com’s Bryan Fischer wrote Manziel is “joining rare company by having his own personalized logo.” Well, “actually two.” Both are “clean and fairly simple while sporting Manziel's famous No. 2.” Although the trademark applications were filed earlier this year, the designs surfacing right before the draft are “merely the latest marketing news to pop up surrounding Manziel” (NFL.com, 5/7). NBCSN's Erik Kuselias said Manziel has "football ability, he has cache, he brings a certain marketability as well -- we're talking about tickets sales, jersey sales -- so are there owners who could be tempted by dollars signs and marketability more than football ability and force their GM to take Manziel?"
