HOUSTON (AP) — Johnny Manziel, a Heisman Trophy winner and one of college football's most entertaining players, awaits the great leap to the NFL.

But as Johnny Football looks to translate his improvisational game to the next level, questions abound about the quarterback's skills and hard-partying lifestyle.

That's why opinions vary on where he'll end up on draft night. Many believe he should be picked early in the first round. Others, like former NFL quarterback and current ESPN analyst Ron Jaworski, don't think he should be taken before the third round.

If teams are sold on him as a player, he may face obstacles from those reticent to deal with the circus-like atmosphere that seems to follow him everywhere.
