Bill O’Brien on Johnny Manziel: He didn’t fit our vision

johnny manziel 3Texans head coach Bill O’Brien conducted a Q&A in Houston for the first time and one Texas A&M alumnus asked him if they thought about trading back up into the first round to get Johnny Manziel.

“No,” O’Brien said, via “Sorry.”

“We spent a lot of time with Johnny (Manziel) and I had great meetings with him,” O’Brien said. “He is a bright guy and I really enjoyed watching him play in college on film and enjoyed talking with him.”

O’Brien said Manziel didn’t fit what they’re looking to do as a franchise.

“We have a vision for our football team and we stuck to that vision,” O’Brien. “Every decision we made in the draft we felt led to that vision and we’ll see if that vision turns out the way we believe it will in whatever, a year, two years, three years. It was what we believed in and we stuck with it and we stayed disciplined in the draft and Johnny’s in a great situation in Cleveland.”
