OPTION 1: MANZIEL AT PICK 16

This is a no-brainer for Jerry Jones.  His starting QB is 34 years old and recovering from a considerable back injury.  Any back injury for a pro player is considerable. While preparing to healthily start in 2014, Romo is far from a future guarantee.

Secondly, with the Cowboys grading Manziel as the #1 QB in the entire draft, there’s zero chance they’d pass on him if he slipped all the way to 16.

Teams like Indianapolis would do this as they have a young, potentially elite QB with many years left to run the show.

Yet teams with an aging QB picking at that midpoint of a draft would never pass on their top rated QB.  QB is not valued the same as any other position.  Without a solid QB, you truly have nothing.

A painful lesson Jones learned during the 5 years (2001-2005) of transition between Troy Aikman and Tony Romo.  The Cowboys posted a 35-45 losing record.

If Johnny Manziel is still on the board at Pick 16, he will be wearing the star in Dallas.
