Manziel flew to Oakland on Sunday ahead of visiting Raiders.
Top NFL prospect Johnny Manziel is understood to be scheduled to visit the Oakland Raiders for two days, according to ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.
Manziel reportedly flew to Oakland on Sunday after he attended Saturday night’s NCAA basketball tournament Final Four games in Texas.
The former Texas A&M star visited the Raiders on Sunday night and has stayed until Monday as he continues to talk to teams ahead of the upcoming Draft.
The 21-year-old is projected to be a possible first-round pick and has been a popular figure both with NFL teams and in the media after an impressive pro day saw him make the headlines again.
While he has already visited the New England Patriots according to sources, it is unlikely that he will still be on the board when the Pats come into play with the 29th overall pick, with the teams with the high picks expected to target quarterbacks.
The Raiders won the fifth overall selection in next month’s NFL Draft, and they appear to have already addressed the requirement to acquire a quarterback by signing veteran Matt Schaub in a trade deal with the Houston Texans last month.
However, that doesn’t rule out the possibility that the Raiders are also looking to address the long-term solution in the role, and Manziel could be one of the candidates to fill it.
After a 4-12 record last season, Terrelle Pryor is likely to be released or traded soon having split time with Matt McGloin, and so Manziel could have an opportunity to make an early impression on the Raiders and secure a roster spot with a team that believes that they have a significant margin of improvement after a disappointing campaign.
