In the final days leading up to the draft, for whatever reason, there is a lot of buzz surrounding the Dallas Cowboys potentially becoming the ultimate media juggernaut by drafting quarterback Johnny Manziel. But let’s be honest, the chances of that happening are slim to none, and are just fodder to pass the time we have left before draft day.
So realistically, who could Jerry Jones, head coach Jason Garrett and the Cowboys be looking at with that 16th overall pick they hold this Thursday? According to Ian Rapoport, they could be targeting some help for the quarterback that they actually have on the roster–Tony Romo–in the form of either USC’s Marqise Lee or LSU’s Odell Beckham.
I would not be surprised to see the #Cowboys target a WR in the first round to play alongside Dez Bryant. If Beckham or Lee are there at 16…

Now this is more on the logical side than making the splash with Manziel. Despite what your personal opinions are of Dez Bryant, he has a lot on his shoulders in the receiving game and some help with one of these two stars wouldn’t hurt one bit. Plus, you get the luxury of both being able to chip in with the special teams game as well.
