    Cowboys won't be picking a QB in the 1st or 2nd rounds in April. Romo's signed for awhile. They may the following year. Next year they'll focus on the DL and OL's. At least I hope.

    Cowboys will draft Aaron Murray in the 4th (he'll slip due to torn ACL) or Jimmy Garoppolo in the 5th-6th. That's what I'm thinking at this point.

    Awesome, let us know how he looks. He only needs 5 TD passes to become the NCAA all-time career leader just fyi.

    Yea he's definitely gaining more notoriety as the season is coming to an end, but I still think with the depth at QB in this draft that some of then are going to slip a bit. All depends on what teams fall in love with what prospects. I still think Murray and Mettenberger slip the most due to their ACL tears and inability to participate in the combine. I could see the Cowboys taking either of them in the 4th-5th and trying to develop them.

    Agree on mett and Murray, their injuries could aid us, IF we look for a development guy

    It would be a good way to avoid carrying 3 QBs on the active roster. Just put him on IR his rookie year and make him the #2 in year 2.

    It would be great if the Cowboys could draft Mariota next year. Let him sit behind Tony for a couple of years and then turn the team over to him.

    My dream scenario. He's still only 20 (will be 21 when he comes out) so waiting and learning for a couple years would be perfect. He's really athletic so we wouldn't have to change the offense much, if at all, and could even throw some bootlegs in the playbook for him. He's got all the intangibles, plus the strong arm, and on top of all that he's a good kid that'll likely never have off-the-field issues. Would be a great situation. My hunch is that we draft someone in the mid-to-late rounds this year though unfortunately.

    RECENT NEWS

    Eastern Illinois senior QB Jimmy Garoppolo will attend the East-West Shrine Game.
    It is another great get for the Shrine Game, but we wouldn't be surprised if Garoppolo ultimately ends up in the Senior Bowl if another quarterback drops out. Garoppolo has a legitimate shot at a top two round selection thanks to his quick decision making, mobility, and willingness to test every level of the defense. He is the best prospect at the all star event. Dec 24 - 12:11 PM

    Miami QB playing for draft status
    07:44 AM ET 12.25 | Stephen Morris came into the 2013 season with a heaping helping of hype. He is leaving it with more hope than hype. Morris has made his mark in the Hurricanes' history books, but he has not had the consistency many expected after stringing 139 consecutive passes (and 11 touchdowns) without an interception to finish the 2012 season. His bionic arm has often dazzled -- and just as often disappointed. Now, the senior quarterback for Miami (9-3) is feeling stronger after playing much of the season with a severe ankle bruise. He will enter the Russell Athletic Bowl against No. 18 Louisville (11-1) on Saturday with one last chance to fortify his NFL Draft worth in his final game as a Hurricane. Can one game make a difference? "Absolutely," said ESPN commentator Rod Gilmore.

    QB Bortles receives 1st-round grade from NFL
    [IMG]
    UCF redshirt junior QB Blake Bortles received mostly first-round grades from the draft advisory board, reports CBS Sports' Jeremy Fowler.

    After Wednesday's 52-42 upset win over Baylor in the Fiesta Bowl, NFL.com's Gil Brandt tweeted that Bortles was waiting on the advisory board's opinion before deciding whether or not he'd declare for the 2014 NFL Draft. Now that he's received the first-round answer most suspected, expect Bortles to make the leap; he has until Jan. 15 to officially do so. ESPN's Todd McShay has ranked the 6-foot-5, 230-pounder as the second-best quarterback prospect.

    Brett Smith, Matthews and Murray are top of the list for me given I doubt the team will use a very high pick on a QB.
