The Dallas Cowboys had a chance to make a huge “splash” in the NFL Draft. Instead they elected to just pick a huge “guy” as in Notre Dame offensive tackle Zack Martin. As you’d expect, Cowboys fans took to social media to air out their mixed feelings about the pick. Below, you’ll find some of the best tweets of the night.
So we lost out on Johnny Football and the trade to the Browns??? You better be the next Larry Allen, Zack Martin!

Mike Mayock on Zack Martin: “…he’s the only player in the draft who can start at every position on the offensive line.”

Zack Martin will be forever known as guy Cowboys got instead of Manziel: “that’s fine by me. I can live up to that.” #DALpick

Jerry Jones just took zach martin over JOHNNY MANZIEL. Which means Jerry is more concerned about winning next year, which isn’t all bad. — Skip Bayless (@RealSkipBayless) May 9, 2014
In @thegob70 (Zach martin) cowboys get a two time captain, who teammates called the toughest player on Notre Dame’s team.

Zack Martin is a terrific guard. He’s boring, though. Doesn’t maul guys but he hardly ever gets beat.

Zack Martin was a great pick for Jason Garrett. Johnny Manziel would have been a great pick for the Cowboys’ next head coach.

Need more evidence that Jerry Jones is changing the way he does business? Taking Zack Martin over Johnny Manziel is more proof.

As a fan of Zack Martin, I’m upset he’s not a Giant and with one of the worst NFL teams. #Cowgirls

Dallas fans really wanted Manziel but Romo’s contract is untradeable. They’ll accept Zack Martin being a bookend for a decade. #NFLDraft
