Manziel and James share an agent, latter has been vocal supporter of prospect.
The Cleveland Browns thrilled their fans after drafting Johnny Manziel with the 22nd pick in the NFL Draft 2014 on Thursday night, and LeBron James appears to be excited too.
Despite slipping down the board after being projected as a possible top-10 pick, the arrival of the 2012 Heisman Trophy winner has made a significant impact on the franchise and they believe that they have found their franchise quarterback for years to come.
The former Texas A&M star split opinion like no other prospect in the build-up to the draft, with many experts insisting that he could become a bust due to a possible struggle with adapting to the NFL game.
However, his confidence has not wavered and it appears as though James is ready to support him when needed as they both share the same agent, and the Miami Heat star wasted little time in getting his jersey.
