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