Cowboys VP not saying much about Manziel
Stephen Jones couldn’t say much about Johnny Manziel on Monday because he says the Dallas Cowboys have yet to finalize where the quarterbacks rank on their draft board.
"There’s not anything I can say about it," the Cowboys executive vice president said on 105.3 The Fan [KRLD-FM]. "We haven’t quite gotten into sorting out the quarterbacks yet, that will come, in terms of finalizing our board."
There has been much speculation that if Texas A&M’s former Heisman Trophy winning quarterback falls to the 16th overall pick that Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones would be tempted to draft him.
"The only thing I’ll say about Johnny Manziel is he obviously had a great career in college, one of the greatest college football players that I’ve watched in terms of exciting and being a great competitor," Stephen Jones said. "Those are things we’ll work through and there’s a lot of things that go into where you ultimately put a player on your board."
But forget the board for a second, Stephen. If Manziel is there at 16, do you take him?
"I think those are all things that we’ll have to work out," he responded. "Purely speculation."
