Better Cowboys Draft: Martin & Lawrence Or Manziel, Ealy & Turner?

The Dallas Cowboys completed a somewhat conservative as well as controversial draft over the weekend. The Cowboys front office made headlines last Thursday opting to pass on Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel and selecting an offensive lineman in the first round instead. On the following day, Dallas gave away their second and third round picks to their divisional rivals, the Washington Redskins, in order to move up thirteen spots to draft the last remaining top-tier pass rusher on their board. But did these two controversial moves really improve the Cowboys draft?

During a conference call with season-ticket holders on Tuesday, Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones revealed Dallas’ plans were to draft Missouri defensive end Kony Ealy and Louisiana offensive guard Trai Turner, if they hadn’t made that trade with the Redskins in the second round. Jones added these picks would have been in-addition to the first round selection of Notre Dame offensive tackle Zack Martin.

But common sense says this would have likely been the pick/player order if Dallas had pulled the trigger on Manziel in the first round instead. So here’s today’s poll question: Which would had been a better 2014 Cowboys draft: OT Zack Martin, DE Demarcus Lawrence OR QB Johnny Manziel, DE Kony Ealy, and OG Trai Turner? Place your vote below and feel free to chime in to our community discussion about it in our comments section as well.
