    HELL no I wouldn't take him. I have to assume this is a rhetorical question. However, the part about JJ taking him isn't altogether crazy because Jones is obviously enamored with him. Scary.

    If he was there at 16 I would draft him for sure.

    With one of the baddest contracts in franchise history we commited ourselfs to Romo. There is no way we draft a QB that high this year. But with those wizz kids like Stehen Jones you never know.
    Personaly i'd say no to manziell even if we had a QB need.

    Last but not least this franchise lacks the skills to develop QBs. If there is something that the FO should think about (instead of drafting a QB) it's the question "how do i develope a good QB".

    Yep, I'd take him and would use him right away too.

    Manziel with 30 rushing TD's is a legit dual threat and can be used on certain running plays, wildcat formation, reverses, the half back option pass etc, etc.

    Sit him on the bench for a year or two my arse!

    Dude proved last year that he couldn't hold up for an entire college season playing that way. What reason is there to think he would be able to do so in the NFL?

    My all-time favorite Cowboys QB is Roger. 'Jolly Roger' made the defensive pursuit look silly while at Naval Academy and was as much a threat to run as to pass. Dangerous enough to win the Heisman trophy. He was very late into the NFL after serving as a Navy supply officer in the Vietnam conflict. Though Manziel and Staubach may seem dissimilar from a 'character' standpoint, their commonality is their ability to rally their teams to victory - their ability to generate unfettered confidence to overcome all circumstances. For Roger, that ability transferred over to the big leagues.

    In college, Johnny Manziel simply made great plays - and often from nothing. If through some bizarre twist of fate, he lasts until the Cowboys' draft position at 16TH - and the Cowboys do not choose him... I will be more than slightly stunned and angered.

    The QB position is THE most relevant position to team success. And our starter Tony Romo may only have a couple years left in the tank even if all goes smoothly. But the odds say that they will not go as such.

    Dallas likely won't even sniff Johnny Football in this draft. But, if they do, they better pull the trigger with a quickness.
