If Johnny Manziel falls to pick 16 could the Dallas Cowboys take him?
Today Jerry Jones said some interesting things on the radio which is not unusual, but is definitely interesting. He was asked about Johnny Manziel and he was not shy to talk about the Texas A&M star.
“We’ll never see him,” Jerry Jones said Tuesday on KRLD-FM Dallas/Fort Worth. “We couldn’t get there if we traded three drafts to get him. But he’s an outstanding player. The area I feel the best about our chances in is at our quarterback. And I feel that way for the next several years. The only exception to that being injury.”
Even though Jerry Jones defended Tony Romo, he still mentioned that he would love Manziel.
“No doubt in my mind he’s going to be an outstanding NFL football player,” Jones said of Manziel. “But we have Tony Romo, and Tony Romo is our ticket. Manziel’s ready to go. He can hit the ground running, as we’ve seen what these clubs over the last two years have done with quarterbacks with unique skills. The coach is going to do it his way. It’s just amazing to see the skill level that he’s got and his intensity of competition.”
