Several of the QB's on that list had the pedigree which is why they were taken so high in the draft. Trading Romo for the #1 overall pick would force the Cowboys to take a QB with that pick and have to play them as a rookie because Kyle Orton isn't the answer. Putting a rookie QB behind center on a dysfunctional poorly coached team that has a defense that needs overhauling would be a recipe for disaster. See how many young QB's you can name that have had success with no support from their defense. The Cowboys wouldn't win more than 3-5 games with a rookie QB and if that QB proves not to be the answer it would set the team back even further. The Cowboys are far enough away from being a championship team as it is the last thing they need is for Romo's replacement to go bust. Jerry wouldn't take the #1 overall pick for Romo if it were possible because he knows his golden boy Garrett would have no chance of winning having to develop and go through the growing pains of a rookie QB on a mediocre team that has no defense to help bail them out. The only argument Jerry can make for keeping Garrett after 3 straight 8-8 seasons is that the team has been competitive playing for the division title in week 17 the last 3 years. Once the Cowboys start suffering losing seasons under Garrett in which they're out of the playoff race entering week 17 it will force Jerry to have to make a coaching change. Hard to spin progress is being made after a losing season. The Cowboys aren't built to have success with a rookie QB. Romo has productive seasons every year and can't win more than 8 games for this screwed up organization.
