ESPN brought up Manziel's name 83 times, and referred to him as "Johnny Football" 30 more.

The total of 113 mentions outpaces that of the top five draft picks combined.

#1 overall pick Jadeveon Clowney came in second, earning 29 mentions on ESPN.

The network's longest period of time without mentioning Manziel: 18 minutes, 50 seconds—spanning the first three picks of the draft.

Can't wait when Manziel can't beat out the 3rd string like Tibow.

He drives clicks and viewers (The Golden Calf of Bristol effect). Friggin Skysports wanted the Jags to draft Johnny because the Jags will be playing in London the next few years.

So that is why he waited so long to get drafted, brilliant!

Well, we all know the media talking about these athletes too much can be a catch-22. It all depends on the agenda.
