Looking for your kindred party spirit? We’ve wrangled 6 NFL players who are sure to be the life of the party wherever they go.
Fast. Fit. Tenacious. Jets general manager John Idzik says his incoming rookies were picked for talent above all else — that’s the way business is done nowadays in Florham Park.
The NFL has never seen anything like it. But this isn’t just any player — this is Michael Sam, who became the league’s first openly gay player when he was drafted on Saturday.
All eyes and iPhones were on Johnny Manziel, who squirmed in his seat for 21 picks before landing in the wasteland we call Cleveland. He forced a smile and his signature salutation, rubbing his thumb and forefinger, a metaphor for counting his cash.
Manziel is the wild card in this year’s NFL Draft, with some analysts pegging him as a top-5 pick, while others have the Texas A&M quarterback slipping totally out of the first round.
Every NFL draft is filled with intrigue. When the crop of college players has 102 early entrants, including the likes of Jadeveon Clowney and Johnny Manziel, that simply ratchets up the excitement.

A decade or more ago, teams could go into the draft and select a player who was going to be given time to develop, particularly at the quarterback position. Those days are long gone.
Mike Evans is one of the can’t-miss names being tossed around heading into May’s NFL draft. But can the Giants or Jets move up high enough to get him?
Simms said the Jets would be crazy to use a pick early on a quarterback, further enforcing the belief that the best way to get the most out of Smith in his second year is to sign a capable veteran free agent to challenge him.
Jadeveon Clowney made things tougher for Johnny Manziel and the other potential No. 1 picks Monday.
Brett Favre admittedly hasn’t seen much of the player known simply as Johnny Football. But the three quarters or so he watched was enough to draw comparisons to a certain NFL great — himself.
Among the early entrants expected to be selected near the top of the draft are Johnny Manziel, the Texas A&M quarterback, Jadeveon Clowney, the defensive end from South Carolina and Clemson receiver Sammy Watkins.
The 21-year-old Manziel is projected by most NFL draft observers to be a first-round pick and potentially a Top 5 selection with several franchises with big needs at quarterback near the top of the draft.
