    At pick 16......Barr and Donald still there. Or at pick 16 neither are there.
    QB Manzal and Bortles gone. Bridgewater still on board too.

    1. Throw the chair at you TV.
    2. Ecstatic that the front office is forward thinking and believe there's a future after Romo.
    3. Ambivalant about the pick....

    I would be upset with the pick but supportive of the player. I really do not think this will happen I really do not see Dallas taking any QB in rd 1. Based on visits it will be defensive or OL. The QB's they have looked at should be there later in the draft.

    It's been a long wait for the draft when they moved it to May.

    This is one scenario that really hasn't been played out. We take a QB that's not named Manzel with the 1st. We all are looking for a QB later in the draft but what if the brass think Carr's got franchise written on him if he can sit for a year or two.

    I'd hate the pick (not a fan of his) but hope for the best.

    Well, I would not be against Carr but I would much rather see us take him at the bottom of the 1st or in the 2nd.

    If the top 10 teams all decide to pass on QB in the 1st round then bunch of them will be trading back into the lower half of the 1st to get a QB. If Cowboys really like a QB then you need to pull a trigger at 16. Can't really screw around and trade back thinking he'll still be there. Some team will leap frog you and take your guy if you trade back.

    Yeah, you pretty much can. There's no reason, at all, to reach for any player in this draft. If you want the QB, then take him at the appropriate time. It's not as if he's a sure fire #1 pick. Heck, I would really not take him in the 1st round at all. He's a good player and I think he would fit our offense but I would not reach for him and that's what I feel like we would be doing at 16. JMO

    Now, I don't see all the teams passing on a QB in the top 10 but if that happened, then somebody would likely be willing to move up to 16 and that's where we should try and make hay.

    If Barr and Donald were there, I would have a panic attack and I'd be a danger to myself and others.

    Drafting him and sitting him a year or two would pretty much guarantee he would not end up a franchise quarterback.

    Short of taking a cornerback, it would probably be the worst use of our first round pick.

    The only QB I could see Jerry taking in the first is Johnny

    That should be the reaction by a fan that has faith in the Cowboys' draft process.

    I would immediately be interested to see his training camp highlights at the 3-technique.

    He a 2nd tier QB who is way higher on draft boards than he should be simply because hes a QB. In reality he's not even a top 40 prospect in this draft class.
