With the NFL Draft looming, a report that Johnny Manziel is visiting the New England Patriots adds a little pre-draft intrigue. 

The NFL Network's Ian Rapoport tweeted that the former Texas A&M quarterback was spotted in Boston and set for a date with the Patriots on Wednesday.

The Patriots pick 29th overall in the 2014 NFL Draft and though it's unlikely that Manziel will still be available with such a late pick, it appears that they are still doing their part in scouting the top quarterback prospect. Not that they need one with Tom Brady under contract through 2017.
