Dallas Cowboys met with both David Fales and Jimmy Garoppolo at Combine

The Dallas Cowboys are in deed looking for a back up to Tony Romo and they interviewed two interesting prospects in Indy.

According to Todd Archer of ESPN/Dallas, the Cowboys met with Eastern Illinois’ Jimmy Garoppolo and San Jose State’s David Fales at the combine.

While Garoppolo’s status is rising — Bill Polian sees him as a first rounder — he could be on the Cowboys’ radar in the second or third rounds. The Eastern Illinois tie with Tony Romo is intriguing. Both players won the Walter Payton Award as seniors. Garoppolo threw for more than 5,000 yards and 50 touchdowns in 2013.

Fales was a two-year starter at San Jose State, playing for former Cowboys assistant Mike MacIntyre in 2012. He had 66 touchdown passes in his two seasons and had a strong showing at the Senior Bowl. He could be a possibility in the middle rounds.

Garoppolo is a small school standout, but would probably needed to be selected in the 2nd or 3rd round for sure if Dallas wants him.  Fales is more of a late round pick.  Either one would be good options for the Cowboys who had to resort to 41 year old Jon Kitna last year as a back up when Romo went down with an injury.
