How to watch the NFL draft
The Cowboysdecided to pass on Manziel, but it wasn't an easy decision. Owner Jerry Jones admitted to reporters Friday that Manziel was the highest-rated player on the Cowboys' board at the time. NFL Media's Albert Breer reports that the Cowboys discussed drafting Manziel while they were on the clock at No. 16.
"It's not the usual development guy behind an accomplished quarterback. He's a celebrity. He's Elvis Presley," Jones said, per ESPNDallas.com.
So Jones ignored value because Manziel is a celebrity? Welcome to bizarro Dallas.
