Why do teams make joke picks later in the draft (Like Johnny Manziel in the 28th this year)?

Yes, obviously the odds of a player that low making the majors is obviously extremely low, but through a quick looksy, I counted 36 players drafted in the 28th round or lower who are on active major league rosters. So it's not impossible. Surely in the 28th round there must be some players with some skill or some potential? Even if all he really has is size, isn't that worth more of a pick then the Browns quarterback?
