For the last few month, rumors have been swirling around Valley Ranch like vultures that Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel is coveted above all by Dallas Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones. Despite his claims to the contrary, some still think Jones wants the talented young quarterback in a Dallas uniform.

Unfortunately for Jones, and all Cowboys fans, Dallas may have to trade up in the first round on Thursday night in order to get Johnny Football. Currently, the Cowboys sit at No. 16 overall. A point where very few draft experts believe Manziel could fall to. So what would Dallas have to sacrifice in order to get Manziel at a higher pick?

Using the Draft Value Chart provided by draftcountdown.com, here are five possible trade scenarios that could land Manziel in Dallas.

    no 16 for clevelands first and 2nd. No 16 for houstons 2nd 3rd 4th and 5th. Those are the trades I would be looking at.

    I just met Manziel in NY at a restaurant. Was with his family in midtown. I Wished him luck and told him i hoped he comes to Dallas. Let’s hope he falls to 16.

      Hopefully tonight will stop the never-ending Manziel being drafted by Dallas stories. Its as if some writers have a fixation on the possibility. You would think there won’t be a quarterback available next year. The fact is there will be and unfortunately some writers will once again flood the internet with draft possibilities of Dallas drafting him.

        Manziel hanging out with Dez and Jerry have fueled these rumors. I wouldn’t be shocked if the Giants somehow sneak in there and take him

    Man will I be glad when he finally gets picked…by somebody else!
