NFL Draft rumors: Dallas Cowboys taking Johnny Manziel at No. 16 is possible

This upcoming NFL Draft has been called the most unpredictable in some time in regards to where the quarterbacks might be taken. With the extra time this year between the end of the season and the draft, the evaluations have been all over the place, and players’ projections are constantly on the move, and that includes Johnny Manziel.

While it seems unlikely that Manziel will fall out of the top 10 as we draw closer to Draft day on May 8, the possibility is still there, and according to Ed Werder of ESPN, should he make his way to no. 16, then Jerry Jones may indeed pull the trigger on bringing in the Texas native to the Dallas Cowboys.


Tony Romo is said to be coming along about as well as can be expected following the back injury he suffered at the end of last season, however the need for a reliable back up is there, despite the team bringing in Brandon Weeden.

This move would be intriguing on so many levels, but if Johnny Football is still there, you really wouldn’t be able to blame Jones for making it happen.
