A lot of hype is centering on Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel and his draft status. As of late, the most exciting college player in recent memory is competing with South Carolina defensive end Jadeveon Clowney for the number one overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft. What is more absurd is that the rumors of the Dallas Cowboys moving up to get the star quarterback, even if it means passing up on talent on the defensive side. I know it won’t happen, but I am here to squash any hopes that the fan base has for drafting Johnny Football.
Bigger needs than Quarterback:
In case you forgot, the Cowboys have an established franchise quarterback in Tony Romo. Oh and you just gave him a contract extension worth $52 million dollars in guaranteed money. He also had one of his more productive seasons and with a bad back led the Cowboys to a do-or-die game with the Philadelphia Eagles. I am not ready to give up on Tony Romo yet. The argument is to draft his replacement, but why waste a first-round pick on a quarterback that won’t play for another two years. I get the theory of drafting best player available, but that only applies if that player helps your team immediately. Johnny Football will not play a snap until Romo retires and Owner/General Manager Jerry Jones has 52 million reasons why he will ensure that happens.
