INDIANAPOLIS -- The Indianapolis Colts ended up playing a part in quarterback Johnny Manziel being selected by the Cleveland Browns.

The Browns gave up the Nos. 26 and 83 picks to Philadelphia to move up to No. 22 to select Manziel. The Colts gave up a first-round pick, which turned out to be No. 26, for running back Trent Richardson last September.

The Colts will get their first look at "Johnny Football" next season when they travel to Cleveland to face the Browns on Dec. 7.

So the Browns got Manziel, who they hope will be their quarterback of the future.

And the Colts?

They got a player who averaged 2.9 yards a carry, lost his starting position and may not get it back next season.

The Eagles ended up selecting Louisville defensive end Marcus Smith with the No. 26 pick.
