The wait is finally over for Johnny Manziel.

After waiting longer than expected, the 2012 Heisman Trophy winner was finally taken late in the first round. The Cleveland Browns passed on Manziel earlier in the draft, but they made yet another move to grab their man. Cleveland traded with the Philadelphia Eagles to get the No. 22 pick, which they used on the former Texas A&M star.

Manziel didn't show much emotion while taking the phone call:
