The Dallas Cowboys had the No. 16 overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft and Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel was sitting there. Some thought Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones wouldn’t be able to resist taking Manziel, but he shocked everyone by taking Notre Dame Fighting Irish offensive lineman Zack Martin.
It was one of the most divided responses we have seen for a pick yet.
