When it comes to the Dallas Cowboys in the 2016 NFL Draft, they have a ton of options to consider. Many believe that the team could be looking to find a player to help them in the immediate future, while others think they could be looking for a replacement at quarterback.
It looks like head coach Jason Garrett could be leaning towards the latter with their fourth overall pick in April. He spoke with NFL Network this week and talked about how they could be looking for a replacement for Tony Romo very soon.
“Certainly we want to have a young quarterback in our program who we’re developing to be a guy who replaces Tony Romo at some point,” Garrett told NFL Network. “Does that mean we take him in the first round, the second round or the third round? I don’t know that. We’ve got to evaluate these guys and sort out who we like at all the positions.”
Romo has been one of the most consistent quarterbacks in the NFL since joining the league in 2003. However, he has also proven to be injury-prone the last few years, so it would be smart for the Cowboys to look for a replacement sooner rather than later.
The Cowboys have a lot to choose from in the first round as either Carson Wentz or Jared Goff should be available by the time they pick. However, they could go in a different direction by selecting an immediate need, like Joey Bosa at defensive end.
What do you think, Cowboys fans? Should America’s Team address immediate needs or focus on the future?
