One rumour circulating around the NFL after the Draft this past weekend was that the Cleveland Browns originally intended to draft Teddy Bridgewater 22nd overall, but changed the name on the card to Johnny Manziel at the last second.

Whether it's true or not, and the Browns are denying it, it's a good thing Cleveland went with the former Heisman Trophy winner over Bridgewater, or they could have been dealing with an unhappy rookie QB.

In a radio interview with "The Dan Patrick Show", Bridgewater said he didn't want to be drafted by the Browns, and that he had always felt more comfortable with the Minnesota Vikings, who selected him 10 picks later at No. 32.

"There was a chance (getting drafted by the Browns), but I actually told my agent that's not the place where I wanted to be,” Bridgewater told "The Dan Patrick Show". "Throughout this entire process I felt comfortable with the Minnesota Vikings."
