    IMO, if any of the top 3 QB's falls to #16, we look at the trade down scenarios in earnest...if no trade partners, it would be difficult to pass on TB

    And if Manziel drops to #16 .. Jerry cant run th card up fast enough. You could see the dollar signs in his eyes.

    If he's there at our pick, you take him. We need to groom the next starter before Romo calls it quits.
    QB is a premium pick and Romo is in his 30s now; if Bridgewater is ready to start at a high level in 3 seasons, the pick is worth it.

    Besides, it's not like the defense is one player away from greatness. It's going to take us 2-3 seasons to get the defense performing well.

    If Bridgewater slides to 16, Jerry & Co., should definitely consider selecting him.
    The reason Bridgewater or even Manziel gets push down into mid-to-late 1st round, is that the quality of talent in the early 1st round is vastly superior than previous drafts.

    Jacksonville, Cleveland, Houston, Minnesota, & Oakland value let's say a combination Kahlil Mack, Jake Mathews, or J. Clowney with a Derek Carr, Garoppolo, A.J. McCarron, or Mettenberger over a combination of Bridewater/Manziel and some lesser talented early 2nd round selection.

    Romo is an aging QB with health concerns.

    If the selection is either between Jernigan, Ealy, Ford or Bridgewater and Manziel, take the QB.
    To be in desperation and reach in selecting a QB (see Q. Carter in 01, and the revolving door of QB's from Tony Banks to Drew Bledsoe), is not a good position.

    Rather than being reactionary, the front office should be proactive and anticipate the transition.

    Without hesitation. Bridgewater will win more Super Bowls than Romo.

    Teddy Bridgewater | Quarterback
    Team: Louisville Cardinals
    Ht / Wt: 6'3' / 205

    NFL Films' Greg Cosell mentioned on the Ross Tucker Football Podcast that he spoke with a source who said Louisville QB Teddy Bridgewater weighed 188 pounds at the end of the 2013 season.
    This is absolutely the NFL's biggest question regarding Bridgewater, and some buzz has even placed him in the second-round as of late. Teams could be worried that Bridgewater's career could go in the path of early RGIII, in terms of injuries. The two are drastically different players in terms of style, with the main difference being RGIII has a frenetic behavior on the field while Bridgewater does not take unnecessary hits. With that said, Bridgewater breaks the mold of a black pocket passer who might be maxed out at 6'2/214 pounds. The NFL has historically struggled with players that offer unique blends of frame and style. Apr 5 - 4:16 PM

    I think Bridgewater presents the best option for us in terms of trade down value,some team may even swap the first rder and give us a 2nd rd pick too.

    I would draft Johnny Football at 16 in a heartbeat, but I would only consider TB in the second or later.
