    This guy has declared for the NFL draft.
    The scoop on him is that he can make any pass and is a great leader.

    I'm not a "Romo must go" guy. In fact, I think he's earned at least another couple/few years to see if he can get it done. And I believe he can and I'm pulling for him.

    But it wouldn't kill us to draft a QB this year. If Garrett stays (as it appears), he might get a raw kid and "raise" him right. Troy had Norv Turner. Favre got "Holmgrenized" and it saved his career. Garrett WAS the QB coach in Miami for two years, apparently for a good reason.

    The QB position in Dallas is probably the weakest with regard to 2nd and 3rd team. If Romo misses games again, it's an almost automatic 1-4 run that we can't afford.

    I say take a guy like this Davis kid, not a McCoy or a Tebow or a Sam. We don't need to waste a trade or a high pick on one of those guys. Romo is good enough and has every chance to be great. But I would spend a 2nd or a 4th on a QB like this. He's the 13th ranked QB in the nation..........

    Apparently he has learning disabilities. I saw the Bowl game, thats where they said he had academic issues due to Learning Disabilities.

    Yeah, he was fumbilina in that game. He has the look of going low draftee to me.

    Graham Harrell.

    The kid faces some very weak defenses and struggled when facing "solid" defenses.

    Still, I think we should draft a "mid-range" type QB.
    If not this kid, then someone besides the "top three" Heisman guys.

    I believe, with Romo, that we have one of the top guys out there. But it wouldn't hurt. The next two guys behind Romo, Johnson and Brooks, not gonna' get it done.

    Draft a QB and let Garrett prove that he's the next "QB Guru" guy. What have we got to lose?

    Hey, take that kid from USC, Sanchez. What the heck? Can't do any worse than Arizona taking the other USC "phenom".

    Nate Davis should be off the board before we pick. He's got a great arm to make all the NFL throws and was very productive. He's the real deal. I don't really see him as being the raw project a team takes a flyer on, but a guy that a team takes to be their starting QB in a couple of years. There's lots of interesting QBs out there, and I'd really like to draft one. I'm of the opinion that you should draft a QB every year, because when you hit it on those guys it's an unbelievably valuable asset to have.
