Could Johnny Manziel be headed to the Dallas Cowboys in this May’s NFL Draft? Well, we are a long ways away still from knowing that answer, but at the NFL Scouting Combine Friday night, Jerry Jones and the team are certainly going to test those waters a bit as they’ve requested to have a sit-down interview with the former Heisman winner from Texas A&M.
Of the entire crop of 335 players, each team gets to choose 60 players they get to interview–which is around the area of 20 percent–and Manziel is indeed one of the choices of the most embattled franchise in the entire National Football League.
While it’s a bit of a stretch to believe that Manziel will still be on the board at number 16 where the Cowboys are picking this year, anything can happen in the draft, including Jones pulling the trigger on a trade to get the most marketable player in this year’s class.
Dallas could be in the market for a quarterback. Although they did just give Tony Romo a huge contract extension, we saw at the end of last season with that sever back injury that kept him out of the final regular season game against the Eagles that long-term health may be a concern.
