Two years ago, Johnny Manziel walked across the stage at the NFL Draft selected by the Cleveland Browns with the 22nd overall pick.
On Thursday night, during the first round of the draft, Manziel appeared to be watching the spectacle from a bar.
Several photos appeared on Twitter on Thursday night purportedly showing Manziel sitting at a bar in Columbus, Ohio.

The first tweet suggested Manziel was at the bar before the Justin Bieber concert in Columbus on Thursday night. Another photo emerged of Manziel wearing the same outfit at what looks like a concert venue (via Yahoo).
On Wednesday, photos showed Bieber and Manziel together in Cleveland. Bieber played in Cleveland on Tuesday.
The photos show the rapid decline of Manziel, who had shown promise during his second season in the NFL. But more off-field issues plagued him, and the Browns eventually cut him. He remains unsigned.
Manziel was recently indicted on a charge of assault related to domestic violence. He must appear in court on May 5.
