Jerry Jones admits Cowboys were ‘that close’ to drafting Manziel
Oxnard, California — Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones can’t help himself. Instead of focusing on training camp, Jones gave new life to an old story during a live segment Sunday on the NFL Network.
Jones admitted the Cowboys were close to drafting former Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel with the 16th overall pick. Jones resisted and chose Notre Dame guard Zack Martin. The Cleveland Browns eventually picked Manziel with the 22nd overall choice.
