Draft Update --- Jerry passes on Manziel

Johnny Manziel was exactly the kind of player Jerry Jones swore to never pass on again after the Randy Moss draft.  And yet he did.

Critics need to acknowledge that this was clearly a collective decision, something critics will never admit.

Clearly the coaching staff didn't want a QB controversy in a make-or-break year.  And Jones went along.

Jones makes one of the safer looking picks.  Martin is a collegiate left tackle who is projected to play guard, but I think he could also play right tackle allowing the team to use Doug Free as a backup.

The assumption is that this means the Cowboys will not draft another OL in the third round.  that may be a wrong assumption.  It will be interesting to see if the cowboys draft an offensive tackle in the third round....

Update:  Jerry Jones has admitted Johnny Manziel was the highest rated player on the Cowboys's board at 16.  The Cowboys decided not to draft Manziel  because the situation was too awkward.
