Cowboys were extremely close to drafting Johnny Manziel

According to Dallas Morning News, the Dallas Cowboys were very close to drafting Johnny Manziel. According to Jim Dent the writer of Manziel Mania, the Cowboys owner Jerry Jones had the cars snatched out of his hands by his son Stephen.

“I could just see Jones grabbing Manziel with the 16th choice of the first round,” Dent writes. “I wrote a book about Jerry Jones in 1995 titled ‘King of the Cowboys.’ I know the Boss Hog. I knew that Jones’ hands were shaking when the Cowboys went on the clock with Manziel still on the board. I could envision Jones scribbling the name of Johnny Manziel on the draft card. Indeed, all of these things happened.

“As it turned out, Cowboys vice president Stephen Jones had snatched the Manziel card straight out of his dad’s hand. Otherwise, Jerry would have drafted him and JFF would have sat for at least three years behind Tony Romo.”

What do you think Cowboys fans? Are you glad they took Zack Martin?
